After 15 years of searching I have finally found my great uncle and his family!!!!.
It had been a problem searching for them as he went under two different surnames but have now traced him using the name Weeks/Weekes. Joseph Weeks, and his wife Florence, children Joseph and Winifred emigrated on the ship S S Lake Erie sailing from Plymouth England on 17th May 1912 going to Quebec, Canada and going to work and live in Summerstown Ontario. Thats all I have been able to find so I am hoping someone may have access to bmd records or can help me find out what happened to them.
Joseph Saunders/ Weekes/Weeks bn 13 Dec 1873 Sussex England (he married in the name of Saunders but was Weekes on Census)
Florence Elizabeth Chenery bn 1875 Sussex England
Joseph Edward Saunders bn 17 Sept 1904 in Clay hill Farm Goudhurst, Kent, England
Winifred Florence Saunders bn 20 Sept 1906 in The Heights, Riverhead, Sevenoaks, Kent, England
Maybe they had more children born in Canada?
Thank you for reading
John Hall Bainbridge was born 10th March 1798 B.A . Durham son of John Bainbridge and Mary Thompson
he married Harriet Andrews 29th March 1825 in Middlesex, England.
Their children were
Francis Hall 1828
Frank Albion 1830-1878
James Andrews 1832
Henry Thompson 1838
John E 1845
In the 1841 Census it looks as if Harriet has died as his wife is now Susan I have no conformation as yet of their marriage so not sure which are their children. Possibly from Henry downwards
This is Frank Albions Story
In 1851 frank is a drapers' assistant in B.A. in Durham.
Sometime between 1851 and 1861 he goes to Australia and meets Maria Ann Horwood, she was born in 1843 in Middlesex, England and leaves with her family in 1857 and sails to Melbourne
Australia. Frank and Maria Marry in Victoria around 1861 and have 4 children there. Harriet Maria 1862, Frank Albion 1864 1865, Henry John Hall 26 January 1866 and Eleanor 1868.
Soon after they return to Durham England and go on to have Minnie 1870 and Florence Ada 1873.
Sadly both Frank and Maria died in 1877 and the two younger children were put into an orphanage in Ashley Down Gloucestershire.
Minnie later Marries William Arnold Hayes and goes to Canada.
Florence Ada who was a nurse, leaves on the ship Scotian 7th September 1920 to Montreal Canada
Henry John Hall calls himself John Hall Henry and is found on the 1881 Census living with his uncle and aunt James Andrews Bainbridge and Sarah (ne Clarke) and is a Solicitors clerk .
He later works his way up the ranks in the Merchant Navy and marries Jessie Parry Angier ne Harris in Cardiff 1903 no children.

Percy Charles WEEKES bn 1904 Goudhurst in Kent England, family rumors say he went to Canada but i cant find him on the passenger ship lists here in England. Please can any help?
florence was born in 1875 Ticehurst sussex england she married Joseph SAUNDERS 1904 they had three children (one died)Joseph Edward 1904 and Winifred florence 1906 their last known address was in Riverhead in Sevenoaks in kent.
on the 1911 census they were going under the name of WEEKES as Joseph grew up with this family and wanted to keep the name even though he was married in the name of saunders and two of the children were reg as Saunders. Their last child was reg in the name of weekes but he did not survive. I have been looking for this family for 10 years.
I have been researching this name for about five years and have quite a lot of info on it. Please feel free to contact me.
