MABERLY - Canada, South Africa & England
My great great grandparents were:
Alfred Edward MABERLY
Born Unknown date in England?
Died between 1940-1945? Unknown location.
Born Unknown date & location
Died Unknown date, likely in Canada (Calgary area)
I believe Alfred and Martha met in South Africa.
Alfred and Martha had 10 Children:
-Caroline Maberly (m. Jim BARNES)
-Martha Gertrude Maberly (my great-grandmother) (m. Joseph John GILLIS)
Born Jan 5, 1889 in Kimberly, South Africa
Died March 28, 1975 in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. (Burnaby is a suburb of Vancouver)
-Alec Maberly (died at a young age) (m. Lillian)
-Dorothy Maberly (m. Robert GORDON)
-Frances Maberly (m. Bert HAYWARD)
-George Maberly (died at a young age)
-John Maberly (m. Rose)
It is believed that Caroline was the oldest child, then Martha.
The family moved to Calgary, Alberta (Canada) in February 1908 where they began a Sunday school and worship services out of their home.Later that same year, the Crescent Heights Methodist Church was built.I don't know much about the family after that, but I do know that a few of the siblings moved to British Columbia (Canada) and at least one lived in the Seattle area.It is rumored that Alfred became estranged from his wife & family sometime after 1908 and it is unknown where in the world he went. Perhaps US, Mexico, or South Africa?
I would be very grateful if anyone could provide further information about this family.Please refer to my web site for more information on these individuals:
