Hi........I have done more research into my greatgrandfather's mother's name........which was not Speen as I first said, but she came from Speen, I found some maps and then got looking at the writing on the page more clearly and it says.......place of birth(Speen)
As far as I know he was a only child because he does not mention any brothers or sisiters.
So here is the real info: Sarah Jane Hermon(born in Newbury) married Arthur William Clarkson(born in Newbury.......served with the 40th regiment of foot..South Lancashire.......they were married in Dum Dum, India in the year 1879........then came back to England, where Arthur died in 1892......then she came to Canada with two of her children in 1912.
My Grandmother's name was Maud Clarkson, she had sisters, Gertrude or Gertie, Violet, Evelyn, brother, Arthur, one sister dying at a early age.
Any information is appreciated.
