I am trying to find a Canadian link to a Benjamin Charles Herbert Stray or Benjamin Herbert Stray.
Ancestry keeps offering be links to a B H Stray on the U.S., Index to Alien Arrivals at Canadian Atlantic and Pacific Seaports, 1904-1944
but I do not have access to that and not worth the expense for a possible link!
Benjamin Charles Herbert Stray married Edith Maude Murray in 1890 they are on the 1891 census but then Benjamin disappears and Edith shows up with a George Hinton and the 2 children are now shown as Hinton.
All in all a pot mess:confused:
 
Was Benjamins mothers maiden name Jennings and did he have a brother George Daniel?

Benj H Stray - age 36
Mrs BH Stray - age 30
Geo D Stray - age 34
County in British Isles which came from Surrey

Wife‘s name is Vanda. Couldn’t find a marriage for Vanda and Benjamin in England.
 
There’s a piece in the Norwood News about Benjamin Herbert Stray a commercial traveller of 70,Vestry Road,Camberwell. I’m unable to view the article as credit is needed.
