My name is William Lloyd Abbott. William and Rose came to Canada in 1909 from England. They ended up in Peterborough Ontario Canada. I know about the Family here in Ontario but would like to connect with The Abbott's and Willis's who remained in England. A Family tree would be great to find. I believe William lived with his Grandfather William Abbott at the age of 18 according to the 1901 census in Hackney England. Rose's Father's name was i believe Samuel William Willis. I think Rose had a brother named Charles and a couple other siblings. Rose's Mother's name may have been Annie, not sure though. William also served in WW1. Any info or connections would be greatly appreciatted. Thanks Bill. Hamilton Ontario Canada

My great grandmother, Ruby Hilda Willis, was born in hackney in 1898. She came over to Canada, on the Tunisian. This was in 1912. I believe she stayed with Francis Willis in Ontario. The ship's arrival was in Peterborough. I can't find any good info on her. She was very quiet about her past, though she inherited approximately $5000 after she got to Canada. Her family wanted her to come back after a few years, but she had to convert to Catholicism. She did not return to England, instead at some point she moved to Michigan. She spoke about an Aunt Emily Bosch. Any connection or answers? Lived in nunney farm manor house, used to describe, bridge at castle nunney and beautiful staircase at the house.
