I'm looking for the descendents of Charles Poyser Henstock who emigrated to Canada from the UK via Argentina. My grandfather was his younger brother Philip and I am trying to put together a family tree. Any information would be welcome.

Hi Fiona,
Could you provide a date for when Charles came to Canada.A rough guess would be great.
Do you know the names of Charles' parents?
Provide as much info as you can and maybe we on these boards can help you.
I happen to live in Canada.

Hi Eglanglois, and thank you for your prompt reply. Charles's parents were John Henstock and Lucy nee Parnell, and he was born in Liverpool, England, in 1877. I know he had two sons, Francis Woodiwis Felton Henstock b 1909 and Charles John Woodiwis Felton Henstock b 1913. I was really wondering about their descendants. I think some of them lived on Vancouver Island.
Regards, Fiona

Hi Stella, thank you for taking so much trouble. Interesting that one of the sons got married in Kamloops. I was there, briefly, not so long ago and it never occurred to me to hunt for cousins then. I am in England, so rather a long way away.

Regards, Fiona

Hi Fiona,
With our privacy laws,it's hard to find more recent info.
However,you could search family trees and perhaps connect with one of their descendents.If you put in Charles and his wife Emily and their important dates,you may find some related folks.

Do you have or want the many passenger lists that are available here on Ancestry of their many travels?

The latest date I saw was in 1928 when Charles returned from Argentina via New York.He stated he was going home to Saanichton on Vancouver Island.He also said that he first was in Canada in 1892.I don't see that record but maybe he came with his parents or another relative.

There are passenger lists for a William Henstock and others.Do you think they are related?

One pasesenger list for Charles and family stated they were passing through Canada on their way to New Zealand.
It looks like his wife was born in the Falkland Islands.
Talk soon,

Hi Elaine, many thanks and I do appreciate about the privacy laws making finding more recent descendants difficult. I'll try searching among the family trees. I've looked at the passenger lists on Ancestry and found some of their movements but it was the younger members of the family that I was really looking for because that will then more or less complete my family tree. So far as I know there isn't a William Henstock in my family.

Thank you for helping me

All the best,

Hi Fiona,
I thought I'd give you afew websites and another message board site.

So,adding on to what Stella said about Cora Henstock.I found her in a public tree and her maiden name was Quigley.

Cora Velma Quigley married Francis Woodiwis Felton Henstock
on 20 June 1933 in Savona,B.C.

I will give you the website for it but if you search by his name,they misspelled it..they have him as Francis W F Houstock.So,I just used her name and found the marriage record.
website is

Another search site that Stella mentioned is the family search one. Website is

Besides the message boards on Ancestry,there is another one that I use and have had alot of help from folks seeing my various posts.
It is
When you click on countries,come to Canada and then you'll see the words regions of the country.Click on there,and you will see all our provinces listed.

You may want to post to the British Columbia message board too on Ancestry.
I'll run along for now.
I'll post again to you if I think of anything else.Sometimes I Google the surname and info comes up.I'll try that over the next few days.
Keep in touch,

Hi Elaine, and thank you once again for everything and for giving me the two websites. I should have thought of Genforum, it was very helpful when I was looking up another branch of my family.

Cheers, Fiona
