Hi,

I've been curious about this family for a while... My great grandmother was a Cawston from Manitoba and I've often wondered if there were relations between the families. Would you know that?

I am quite new to Ancestry and did not see this until just now. I have found Maria Lowe Cawston (Richard Lowe Cawston's mother) in Winnipeg in the 1891 census. I wonder if this is a relative of yours? Any thoughts you might wish to share? i would be happy to hear from you if you are still looking for information!

I have a Margaret Verna Beatrice Weaver, I believe she went by Verna, she was born in Ontario, and died 22 April 1984, Vancouver, B.C.
She was married to Richard Lowe Cawston, born 21 Feb.1888, Cawston, B.C. and died 18 March 1954, Penticton , B.C., they had a son also called Richard Lowe Cawston, 1925-1969.
Could this possibly be your family?

I have a Verna B Weaver, married to Alfred Hamilton Cawston, could this be your Verna B Cawston?
Verna wrote several stories for the Okanagan Historical Society Annual Reports.
