The Tom Slade Family, London, Ontario. Ca. Updated March 1, 2003
About Our Family Research
Our family roots originate from Devonshire, England. My father's father was a farmer who owned a large farm called Heden Mills which was located between Braunton and Ilfracombe at a place called Knowle. I wish to know lots more of Farmer Slade My father immigrated to Windsor Ontario when he was 17. My mother was a Dr Barnardo's child whos maiden name was Stiff. She was sent to Canda when she was 13 years old. Gertrude Stiff who was born in Sudbury, Suffolk lived in London, Ontario. She met my father Tom Slade at a family reunion held in London. It was a Slade, Thompson reunion. I know quite a lot about my mother, thanks to the Barnardo's excellent records, but unfortunately not enough about the Slades. I would love to hear from anyone who might know or could add a little to this intriging riddle.
