My grandfather, Frederick William and his brother Charles John served in WW1 with Canadian Expeditionary Force. I'm trying to locate their uncle (relations) George Jelley, born 1866? and immigrated to the America's.

I'm looking for information about the ancestors of George A. Jelley born in about 1886 in Prince Edward Island. He was married to Catherine (or Katherine) McKay born in about 1888 in Scotland. They moved from Canada to Massachusetts. I found 13 of their children listed as being born in either Massachusetts or Canada: Helen, Margaret L., Edward, Evelyn, Walter, John, Mary, Dorothy, Grace, Ruth, Robert, and Elizabeth.

My grandfather Charles Gelley (born 1886)was a Canadian soldier in WWI and so was his brother George Gelley (born 1888). They lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Hello,

My grandfather was Charles Gelley and he served with 2 brothers in WWI with the Canadian Forces. Our grandfathers must have been brothers. Do you have any more info on the family. My grandmother Pearl Archer was Charles wife. I have nothing but walls when I research her because she was an orphan. Do you have any info on anyone that might help me? Did you every find George Jelley, thier uncle?

I think it is possible that we may be related. My great grandfather Thomas Gelley was born in Quebec and also married a woman from Scotland, her name was Elizabeth but I am not sure of her last name? Thomas served in WW1 too with the Canadian forces.

Did you find what you were looking for? We have family in common and are related through Thomas Gelley, but not through the same Grandmother. Thomas remarried after Elizabeth passed away and he had 4 more children. I see Charles and Pearl in our genealogy. We have found history for Thomas going back to the 1600's. I have no history on Pearl. Who is your father and other relatives? We may be able to fill in some blanks for each other.

Hello. I am e-mailing on behalf of my 88 yr old mother, Merle Williams (nee Jelley). Her father's name was Frederick William Jelley, he had a brother Charles but she does not know Charles' middle name and her father, Frederick, had an Uncle George born in 1866. Family, as far as we know, lived in Surrey (Woking), England. Mother's dad immigrated in 1906 to Canada. Frederick & Charles' father's name was John born in 1859 in Woking, Surrey. John Jelley's mother's name was Harriet Jelley (nee Heather) and his father's name was William Jelley. Mother has an interest in geneology.

Hi i just came across this blog and I am able to fill in a few blanks. Your gr. grandmothers name is Elizabeth Gallie. She married Thomas Gelley and they had 10 children; Adrienne, Charles, Wilhemina, Maurice (aka George), Blanche, Thomas, Yvonne-Marie, Lucille, Marguerite, and Estelle. When Elizabeth passed away Thomas married Francis Dowling. Together they had 4 children; Cecile, Denise, Francoise-Louise, and Gerard. Thomas (b1894) the youngest of the three boys registered last for WWI and followed his brothers Charles(b1886) and George (b1889)into the Canadian Over-seas Expeditionary Force. We are related through your gr grandfather Thomas. My father is Gerard. I am working on updating info on our history current and past.

Hello from Coventry UK. George has been a popular name in our family in Coventry UK but I don't know of any Canadian connections. Many ancestors were watch makers here, records go back to 1750s.
