Subject: William Allchurch and Mary J. (Brockway) Allchurch

William and Mary Allchurch immigrated to Canada from England at or about 1906, and settled in Oxford County in the vicinity of Mary Allchurch (nee Brockway)'s sister Annie (Brockway) George.
I am trying to track down information on William (my maternal grandfather) for the period of time that he would have resided in Oxford County - from approximately 1906 to 1916. He subsequently married my maternal grandmother Isabella George (nee Hunter) in 1916.
The confusing piece is that records appear to indicate that his first wife Mary did not pass away until 1922 and there doesn't appear to be a record of William divorcing Mary before he married my grandmother Isabella.
Any information, photos, etc. that could be shared would be greatly appreciated.
