Surnames: Bye and Belgrave
I am looking for information on my great grandfather Walter Francis Bye who seems to have arrived in Georgetown in the early 1890's, married Kathleen de Costa Belgrave in 1894, had a son in April 1895 ( George Francis Bye, my grandfather) and was manager of the Reicke's establishment in Georgetown in 1904. After that I can find nothing about Walter or Kathleen, but George enlisted in the Canada Overseas Expeditionary forces in 1914 and said he had spent one year in the Guyana militia.
I have found one other reference to some Bye's in the mid 1930s ....a Walter Hugh Bye leaving by ship to New York aged 36 with his wife , implying he was born around 1900......perhaps a brother of George?

Any information on either the Bye or Belgrave families or tips as to where to look would be greatly appreciated.
