Need info on my grandmother - Chambers (Catherine, Katherine but called Katie) born in Ontario around 1896-1898. Had sisters Mabel, Florence and maybe Maud. A brother Bob or Robert. Married Norman Todd on 19 Feb., 1913 in Toronto. Later moved to Montreal where she died in 1951. Anyone with info on this family please contact me. Thank you.

I am looking for my father's mother's family. He was born in Ridgetown, Ont on Apr. 12, 1912. He was adopted by Thomas & Hanna Rylett. His birth registration said that his mother's name was Mabel Chambers and father unknown. He was named Harold Goldwin Rylett. Any info would be appreciated. Harold died in Dec. 1952.

Ridgetown is in Howard Township, Kent County so start looking in that area.

1911 census Ridgetown, Kent East has a Joseph, 62, and Sarah,59, Chambers and son Morland, 23 but no Mable. They are the only Chambers in Ridgetown.

1911 census has a Thomas and Hannah Rylett living in Bosanquet Kent West.

1901 and 1911 census on www.automatedgenealogy.com

1901 census Ridgetown Elgin West [ County has changed]

CHAMBERS
Joseph,head, 6 Feb 1849, 52, b Ontario, day labourer
Sarah J, wife, 1 Jun 1851, 49, Ont
Eliza M, daughter, 15 Sep 1882, 19
David M R, son, 2 Oct 1887, 13

Eliza M could be your Mable? Strong possibility that this is your Chambers family.
I don't see any Eliza M or Mabel on 1911 census but she should be around Ridgetown someplace.
Good luck.
Couldn't find anything else on Eliza M or Mable.

1891 census Ancestry.ca
Ridgetown, Elgin West

CHAMBERS
Joseph, 42, b Ont
Sarah Jane, 40, Ont
Eliza M, 9, Ont
James Arthur 6,Ont
David M R, son, 3, Ont



Looks like Eliza M's name is Aliza Malvena b 15 Sep 1881 in Burford, Brant County, d/o Joseph Chambers & Sarah Jane Kelso. From Ancestry.ca
James Arthur b Brant County, 23 Jul 1884. Parents as above.
They must have moved to Elgin/Kent later.
You will have to decide whether this is your Mabel or not.

Good luck.

My father's mother was Mabel Chambers. He was born in Ridgetown, Ontario Apr. 12, 1912. Father was unknown. I would appreciate any information you have that this might possible be his mother.

No, this Chambers would have been 30 years old at the time of the babies birth. I doubt that it would have been given up for adoption.

Sorry to take so long to answer your message. My gandmother Katie Chambers did have a sister Mabel whose birth registration says she was born on October 8, 1887 in Havelock, Peterborough County, Ontario. She married a John Young but I don´t know what year and they had no children. That she could have had a child prior to her marriage is a possibility but none of the family new about it or if they did it was never mentioned. I do have a copy of her birth registration so the information is correct. Don´t know if any of this is going to be of much help.

Thank you for getting back to me. I was wondering if you could send me a copy of Mabel Chambers birth registration.

Thank you. Some day I hope to get to the bottom of this mystery, someone out there knows the answer.

In response to Kathy whose grandfather was Harold Rylett, I don´t know where our connection would be. My grandmother Katie Chambers father was William Henry Chambers. If you still think we may be related please contact me again. Thanks.
