Classification: Query
Edited: 1235923780000
Surnames: RIDDELL, Huggan
I have recently discovered that a family I have been searching for years for arrived in Galt,Waterloo c-1910.
They are listed on the 1911 census..place of habitaion was called Beverley.
James Riddell age 34 head
Hestie " age 32 wife (Harriet Huggan*maiden name)
Lizzie " age 9 dau (Elizabeth)

Thomas Riddell age 26 brother was also living with this small family at this time.
I do not know if they came all together or not.
I would be greatful for any info OR any contact with this family OR if you know of descendants still living there.
James & Harriet would well have lived into the 1960s+ as well as Thomas Riddell.
Elizabeth Riddell could well have married in the 1920s.
Thanks for reading and in advance for any info....

Hi Margaret..
you were busy..many thanks..

I did not have the 4 different pieces on the WWI stuff..that was the 2 on James and 2 on Thomas..I sort of think the one on Thomas with the ?????is the same guy..as he had a sister back in Hawick named Anna Riddell.
Their parents wer Emily Drinkwater and John Riddell
One has to take all these pieces of info sort,study and research further,just to be correst...

Are you connected to this Riddell line..or just a Riddell researcher.?

After around 30 years of research..all on paper...I had to get a program to get this onto...OH MY..what a task.
You enter this basic info and then realize there is more blank spaces that need to be filled...today alone I have been infront of this PC for about 10 hours..lots of cold coffee..

I also think I will check out Casper Wyoming and see what shows up there..just to be sure it is him or it is not.

I gather from what you sent that you too have been at this all consuming passion for some time.

Again...thanks for all your time and help..

Hi:
Yes I have been at genealogy a while.
My name is Chris and I reside in Galt.
My great grandmother's sister, Irene Campbell-well... her name was Stephens , but she was raised by her grandparents and they are listed on the marriage, married an Arthur Wray Riddell in Galt{son of Charles Riddell and Elizabeth McNeilly}.
You can find copies of the WW1 papers on the net. Just type in "Attestation Papers" Canada WW1 into Google and search from that site.
You could also check with the Cambridge Archives archives@cambridge.ca and see if they have any Directories etc...for 99 Beverley street in Galt for 1900-1920's.
I have a 1946 Galt/Preston Directory and there is an Arthur W. Riddell {wife Irene-my relations}, Clara J. Riddell, Geo. E. Riddell {wife Bessie}, John R. Riddell {wife Jean}, Reginald G. Riddell {wife Eileen}. There is also a Margaret Riddell {widow D F} living in Preston in 1946. Galt, Preston and Hespeler all became Cambridge in 1973.
Let me know if you are looking for anything else in Cambridge.
Chris

Hi. I am trying to find some information about an Ivy Gertrude Butcher and i see you have that name in your family. She is born March 1882 in Ontario and married Thomas F. McIntyre in 1909 in Perth Ontario, Canada. Just asking to see if you have seen her name. I think the other names in that family are Enfield and Cockrem. I have early Caven family from Galt as well. Thank you, Marilyn

if you don't have these possibles:
LDS shows a Gertrude Ivy Butcher born March 1, 1882 at St Marys daughter of Thomas F Butcher and Ellen J. Bartlett.
The 1901 census shows her as "Iven G. Butcher" with her mother and 5 siblings.
The 1911 census shows Ivy McIntyre with husband and son Thomas.
The OCFA shows several burials for this family at St Marys Protestant cemetery.
