My Robert settled in Yorkville originally, which I beleive was the area of Yonge St. just north of Bloor St.
(It is now an upper scale $$$$$ place.)
He and Rosie stayed in that area through various census'.
He married Abia Clegg in 1910, two years after Rosie died. He was still in that area in the 1911 census.
Abia died in about 1918 in the Toronto Western Hospital, which is on Bathurst St. and is still there.
Robert died in Lakeview which was a summer cottage area in the early 1900's
I have found a lot about Robert and Rosie once they arrived in the Toronto area.
My problem is finding Robert in the passenger lists in 1866 or 1869 and in the English census and birth lists. I Know that according to the handout at his funeral it said that he was born in Yorkshire, and I am sure that he was in his 93rd year at the time of his death.
The problem is, that in those years, they showed very little information about the person, and it is not possible to identify which one is my Robert. My aunt has the Wood family bible, and I have copies of the births, deaths, and marrieges, but there is nothing in them that tell anything of his previous history
