Have been looking for a G.Uncle Valentine Bean for the last 12+ years
He was born in Kent UK 1873 to parents Valentine Bean & Lucy Ann Roberts , I have all his siblings and quite a lot of info on the rest of the family but he seems to be "untouchable" !! The following is all I have on him and I really would appreciate some help here:
Valentine Bean : Birth June Quarter 1873 Eastry, Kent. Vol. 2a page: 779
Valentine sailed from Liverpool on 12th. March 1910 on the "S/S Carthaginion" ( not easy to read ) bound for Halifax in Canada arriving March 28th. at 9.15 am.1910.
It would appear that Valentine was not married when he arrived in Canada, however, recent research by Ted Simpkins shows that on his manifest / passenger list for his 1910 trip he states he is married.Sooo the story thickens !!
His ticket no: is 32818, he had 25 pound cash on his arrival, he was aged 36yrs. (1874) ,states he is married, has never been in Canada before, was born in England, speaks English, destination Hamilton, Ontario, former occupation : Engine Driver, Going to be a Farm Labourer, & denomination: Cof E,
Family Search IGI Individual Record shows Valentine Christened 25th. August 1878 in Lydden, Kent. Batch No. C043183 ( Film)
In the 1881 census of Ewell, Kent, Valentine is noted with his family , living at "Cold Blow Cottage" aged 8 yrs. After that I can find no trace of him .Valentine Bean : Birth June Quarter 1873 Eastry, Kent. Vol. 2a page: 779
