This is very interesting, Thank you.
I'm curious about the family arriving seperately as I had information given to me that Edmund, Elizabeth and Maria arrived together in 1901. Please continue, I am very curios as to the name of Edmund's father as my family tree building is stuck in limbo until I can continue. I will click 'accept' with a little more information as I do appreciate your efforts.

ps... I'm not sure what to think about this, but this website says The Lake Ontario's last voyage was in June of 1902...?
Thank you! Of course now I have a million more questions... when/how did James die? Where/when was he born, who was his father .... etc. (!) ?
;) - Brian
Do I have th eability to ask more questions? I wonder because the information you have so far supplied to me brings to mind many, many questions, such as:
1) I thought my G-G-Grandmother Maria's maiden name was Stannard, yet my G-Grandpa Edmund's birth certificate says her maiden name is XXXXX XXXXX naturally I wish I knew what this was all about?
2) My G-G-Grandfather James, Edmund's father, is listed as a 'coachman' and now I wish I knew when/where he was born... you previously mentioned that you had a lead on his death (date/place) but I have not seen that information from you... did you find anything?
Quote: (Also, I have narrowed down the date of Edmund's father's death. He had to have died between 1href="http://www.justanswer.com/general/4tswq-trying-find-name-great-grandfather-so.html74 and 1href="http://www.justanswer.com/general/4tswq-trying-find-name-great-grandfather-so.htmlhref="http://www.justanswer.com/general/4tswq-trying-find-name-great-grandfather-so.html1. I may have a good lead on this also by looking at the 1href="http://www.justanswer.com/general/4tswq-trying-find-name-great-grandfather-so.html71 census)
3) I will now seek information on the marriage of Maria and James, and would like to find James' birth-certificate as well, in order that I may determine who HIS father was?
4) I cannot understand why my great-great-grandmother and my great-grandfather and his wife, who lived right near the major port of Southampton, would travel all the way across England to depart for Canada from Liverpool..(!?). This one really puzzles me.
Is any of this information you can help me with, and at what cost?
I need to keep going now, so if you can, please purchase the marriage certificate via my credit card. Thank you.
Brian, I can't use your credit card to purchase it.
How do we proceed then? Are you able to purchase it (JustAnswer) and then charge me for it or...?
I don't belong to ancestry.com, nor do I want to, which is what lead me to you originally.
I am absolutely OK with that, and I appreciate it... and I will reimburse you, I promise!
Hi. I'm still waiting on this, right? DId I ever press 'accept' yet for you...?

Well, you must have had some sort of 6th sense...Guess what was in my mail box today? James Curtis married Maria Burton on April 17, 1871 at Hythe. He was 26 and she was 32. His father is listed as Harry Curtis and her father is Edmund Burton. Edmund Burton and Charlotte Curtis were the witnesses. Here is the link to the certificate: http://www.mediafire.com/i/?vebzm7410cfikwg
Also, I think I know where the Stannard name came in. James' sister, Charlotte, married a Stannard.
And then, I found all of this information:
James' father was Harry Curtis b. 1819. His mother was Sarah b. 1815.
Maria's father was Edmund Burton b. 1811. Her mother was Kate Carr Burton.
Harry Curtis' father was Henry b. 1786, d. 1857. His mother was Elizabeth (Etheridge?) b. 1786.
I am putting together the documents for you.
