George Fredrick Shakespeare (1865 Birmingham)
Just wondering if anyone has come across a George Fredrick Shakespeare, born in Birmingham around 1865.I'm unaware of his parentage, but this is what I have so far on his marriage and descendents:
Married Mary Anne Shelton on April 18, 1886 in Coventry. Four children that I can find.
George Bernard Shakespeare (b 1886 in Foleshill)
William Thomas Shakespeare (b Foleshill - d 1917 Birmingham)*
May Ada Shakespeare (b Foleshill)
Olive Edna Fredricka Shakespeare (b January 10, 1907 in Birmingham - d May 29, 1972 in Port Colborne, ON, Canada)**
* William was a private with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.He served and was wounded in France, then was brought home to Birmingham where he died.
** Olive was my great grandmother.Her father (George Frederick) died before her birth.
Mary Anne Shakespeare (nee Shelton) left England for Canada after the death of her husband in 1906, taking May and Olive with her.She sailed from Liverpool in 1910 aboard the ship Virginian.
