Biography

Profile adopted September 2013, research still undertaken.

Any information welcome.


Birth

John was born to George Amass and his wife Susan Blake in Ipswich, Suffolk, England. His birth was registered during the last quarter of 1900. [1]

John was one of at least eight children in his family. [2]

When the 1911 census was taken, John aged 10 years, was attending school in Ecclesall, Yorkshire (West Riding). He was living with his Uncle, George Henry Robinson (40), Aunt, Nellie Moyes Robinson (38) and Grandmother Mary Blake (77), in Ecclesall, Sheffield, Yorkshire (West Riding), England.

On 6th July, 1928, John boarded the ship Antonia owned by Cunard Line and captained by Geo A Melson, at Liverpool Docks. The ship was sailing to Quebec, Canada. John is listed as a Spring Maker, aged 28 years, last known address, 34 Florence Road, Sheffield. [3]

Very little is known about his life after this date, including if he married.

Death

John passed away on 21st June, 1969, and was buried in Mount Royal Cemetery Montreal, Montreal Region, Quebec, Canada. [4][5]

Notes

There is reference to a Mary Amass buried in the same cemetery in 1978, which may (or may not) be John's Wife, but evidence of this has not yet been found. Find A Grave: Memorial #108987132

Hi Irene,

I think that the privacy could be lowered to green on John's profile. If he was married to Mary she is also deceased. (See profile notes). I will leave that to your discretion. :)

Thanks and happy researching,

Wendy
