About Our Family Research

Researching Charles Heaton-Armstrong for Historical Society of Armstrong, B.C
My town was called after him. He is believed, as head of a London bank, to have floated the bonds that built our local railway in 1892. He was born in Grunden, Austria 1853 to John Armstrong ( Ireland) and Josephine Mayr (Leoben, Austria). He became a captain in Merchant Navy,join the Chilean Navy in the Chilean-Peruvian War. He settled in Roscrea, Tipperary, Ireland and ran for the Unionist Party, but was defeated by the Home Rule candidate. He was a J.P. in the area. Armstrong while in Ireland inherited or had conferred on him the title "Heaton". He went to London where he had interests in a merchant bank and died there in 1917.
We would like to learn more about him. Did he ever visit our town named for him. Photographs of him or home for our museum would be most welcome.
