I don't have a whole lot to offer, I myself am doing a roots paper (my senior seminar of college). I am the granddaughter of Eric, who had 4 children (Lance, my father, Laurie, Lassie, and Lorna). I don't know if you have any information about the family prior to this, but I would love to know as much as I can about our ancestry.

I also remember seeing an old photo somewhere in our family of Alfred. If I remember correctly, he had many children and taught at the Harrow (?) School of Music. I think that there was some story about Winston Churchill in there too, don't know if you know anything about this or not.

I have 5 painting signed by Owen Gurney and some of the writings on the back of the pictures make reference to "Gore Bay", " Northern Ontario Landscape", Approaching rain Orrville Ont.", "Maple Lake, Orrville; Ont", Mouth of White River, July 1968." Am curious if he is related.

I Purchased a painting by Owen Gurney today at the Kensingto antique market here in Toronto. It is Titled: Victoria Coastline. The writing on the back says it was presented to Glenview W.A. in October 1964. There is also a name and phone number writen in pencil. Miss Howard 488-1156.
There are also numbers 3"450 Ez - 300 ativ. No idea what they mean but I love the painting, and would love to know more about the artist. The heavy impasto and bright colours are wonderful.
Yours truly,
Robert Huot
