Looking for Ivills and Howecrofts!
Back in 2001, my dad, Jack, posted a search for relatives. He passed away a couple of years ago, and I have been picking up the torch, so to speak.
Here's all I know for fact:
Thomas Henry Ivill was married to Margaret Tyldsley
They had 4 children -Tom Ivill, born January 21, 1882
Samuel Fred Ivill, born March 16, 1892
Mary Alice Ivill, about Sep. 1875?
Sarah Ellen Ivill, about Sep. 1883?
The last three siblings all went by their middle names, Fred, Alice and Ellen.
To my knowledge, Alice nor Fred ever married.
Ellen was married somewhere in England (I think) to A. Sanger.
Tom and likely the others, was born at home at 87 Market Street, Kersley, (also noted as Kearsley and Prestolee?)and married Selina Howecroft August 9, 1902 Selina had lived at 30 Thorne Street, Moses Gate, Bolton. She had brothers John William Howecroft, Peter and Tom Howecroft. and
After having two of their children, they immigrated to Canada, and settled in Toronto where the last 5 children were born.
They had a total of seven children
Annie (born in England), James, Tom, Mildred, Lillian, Margaret and Jack (who is my dad).
Next week, the children of Annie, Tom, Lillian, Margaret and Jack are gathering for a reunion of the cousins. All of our parents are gone and we want to ensure our own chldren and grandchildren get to know one another before the generations put too much distance between.
If anyone sees a connection, please reply. It would be wonderful to expand on the tree we have developed here in Canada and the US.
