Those of us tracing our lineage to the Calverts of Howden (1800) will gather at Salmon Arm this summer for frolic and geneology.

Families welcome in this resort area of BC!

Hello:

I am doing research for the Haney Heritage Museum in Salmon Arm. Is this the Calvert family as in John Calvert from Yorkshire? Died at age 85, Nov 1916 and is buried in Mount Ida Cemetery. If so, please contact me. Many thanks!

We are not aware of a connection, but with branches of our family tree missing, I wouldn't rule it out.

Can you provide me with any more info re: ancestors of your John? You can reach me at 675-2609

That may well be my great-grandfather. My grand-father (also named John) was born in Great Driffield Yorkshire in about 1865. His father was a tailor. He had a brother called James. John (Jnr) migrated to Australia where he was a Methodist minister all his life. He died in Sydney around the time of WW2 when my mother was still in her late teens (he was already 61 when she was born). Although he begged his brother and father to join him in Australia, they ended-up migrating to BC. I believe they first settled in Kamloops and moved to Salmon Arm later. In 1910 my grandfather paid his brother a visit in BC and we have letters (and possibly) postcards of the trip. I understand that when James retired he was active in a yacht club either at Salmon Arm or nearby. There were no offspring of James but an female adoptee or ward who used to sent my mother a "Beautiful BC" calendar every year until sometime in the 1970s. My grandfather typed letters to the BC family regularly and always kept a copy. The copies are still in the family with an aunt. I am not sure if it is the same person but that is what I know and it may help you.
