DENYER Family :: Genealogy
<< Previous - Next >>


Journal by gsmithwalkden

My Grandfather was a Barnardo Home Boy sent to Canada in 1907. His Mother was Mary Jane Smith at the time of his birth and later married ALFRED JUPP DENYER. According to the 1911 Census in London England, they were both 34 years old (approx.). I was always told that my Grandfather Frederick William Smith was an only child. It turns out that he had two half brothers, Nathan Denyer and Edward Charles Denyer who were both alive when my Grandfather was sent to Canada. That means I have relatives in the U.K. !!! Looking for any descendants of ALFRED JUPP DENYER or MARY JANE DENYER (nee Smith). She apparently remarried to a Mr SEARLE in 1916.

Thank you so much! I have the papers from Barnardo's and the name on there is Mary Jane Denyer but I was stuck as I didn't know if her maiden name was Smith. I now know that I AM really a smith!! Shame about Nathan. My Grandfather was in France in WWI. He served with the 20th Batallion Queens Own Rifles Canada. I come from a long line of military. I myself was in the Air Force and served 3 tours in Afghanistan so it is interesting to see that one of my Grandpa's brothers also served. I really appreciate this information.
