Hi

In the 1851 England census I found Edward I Bawtree age 2 born: abt 1849 in Upper Canada. It does not say who his parents are. Could sks do a look up for me?

Any idea where 'Upper Canada' is?

Many thanks

Michelle

I presume that you have looked through all the Censuses for him but in case you haven't in 1861 he is a pupil at the Royal Academy, Alverstoke , hampshire and in 1881 he is noted as a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy, staying at the Royal Rock Ferry Hotel, Higher bebington, Cheshire. Both entries give his birthplace as Canada.
I haven't been able to find him in any other Census but as he was in the Navy he would probably have been at sea.

Hi Emeltee, straight in with a bang, well done.

Hey messers, looks like you have a Jack Tar to look for.

HI

P.risboy and joyce: I do not really know how to look up the census's so you have given me information I do not have.:) Thanks for your help.:D I would like to find out who Edward's parents were. If he was born in Canada and there is no mention of his parents, I wonder if they had died in Canada?

It seems that Upper Canada refers to Ontario.

Steve: what does 'Jack Tar' mean?:confused:

Are there any census' before 1851? Perhaps Edward's father will be on that.

Thanks

Michelle

Hi Michelle,
It's an old English phrase which referred to merchant and Royal Navy sailors.
Look at this:-

Sorry, I should have realised that you may have thought 'Jack Tar' was another relative.

Steve.

This will give you a little bit better location. I don't know how to insert images :( here but the link will give you a visual:D

upper canada,

The Province of Upper Canada (French: Province du Haut-Canada) was a British colony located in what is now the southern portion of the Province of Ontario. Upper Canada officially existed from 26 December 1791 to 10 February 1841 and generally comprised present-day Southern Ontario and, until 1797, the Upper Peninsula of what is now part of the U.S. state of Michigan. Its name reflected its position closer to the headwaters of the St. Lawrence River than that of Lower Canada. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2d/Canada_upper.PNG[/IMG] Joyce

Hi, Whether this is your Edward Bawtry, there is a Edward John Bawtry born
15 April 1848 on the National Archives Lieutenant.

The documents can be downloaded for a fee of £3.50 each.

Thanks for this - I have only seen it now.

The 1851 lists Edward I Bawtree - but I suppose the transcription could have been an error and should be J for John - this seems to be a family name. And here the surname spelling has changed, I will need to follow this spelling as well.
