Mary Louisa Blechynden married Christopher Patrick Conway between Jul-Sept 1887, Brentford, Middlesex, England. They had at least 3 children, 2 boys and a girl. The daughter was named Kathleen Maria Conway, born 1898.

I am looking for any details of their parents or children as I would like to try and trace Blechynden and Conway line.

Dorothy Dinsdale Mitchinson

Dorothy Dinsdale Mitchinson, daughter to Annie Disdale and John William Mitchinson, was born 1897 Gateshead, Durham, England. Dorothy moved to Canada in 1920 and a year later married Francis (Frank) Peacock on 1 June 1921. There is a departure record stating that Dorothy returned to England in 1952 at the age of 55. Also on the departure record is recorded that Dorothy had 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl.

I am trying to find some more information about Frank and the children who may have been born in Canada.
