Thank you for your interest , I have no doubt that these entries have a connection to my family due to the name " Valentine" as this seems to be a family name carried down through generations , but at this stage not a close connection as I see it, but thanks to you I will keep on record and research these families ,further at a future date .
The Great uncle that I am researching is only registered as Valentine Bean , no second name that I have come across , he is the son of Valentine Bean & Lucy Ann Roberts , his siblings are :
George Valentine Bean brn. 1865 Lydeen, Kent UK
William Charles Bean brn.1867 Dover, kent UK,
Emilie Bean brn. 1867, kent.
John Valentine Bean,brn.1869,Ewell Minnis, Kent, England.
Emma Matilda Bean brn. 1871, Eastry, Kent UK
VALENTINE BEAN BRN:1873,EASTRY,KENT,UK.... This is my Valentine I am looking for !!
Mary Ann Bean, brn.1876 Eastry kent
Louise Bean, brn, 1878 Lydden,Kent, England.
Stephen Dale Bean, brn.1881 Eastry, kent UK
Annie Bean brn.1883 Eastry, kent UK
Edward Valentine Bean, brn.1885, Eastry, Kent, UK
Roland Arthur Bean brn.1888 Eastry, Kent, UK
Hilda Jane Bean, brn. 1889,Kent UK

In the 1901 census for Kent - Waldershire Parish - District of Eastry - we find Valentine and family living at Eastlingdown Farm.
Warren & I visited this farm while in Kent in 2005, the homestead looked exactly the same as it did in the photo we have which could have been taken over 100 yrs. ago !!

Information researched by Bruce Ewan on my behalf shows 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. The ship was given a clean bill of health, there were 413 adult passengers and 85 children under the age of 14 years.a total of 495.
The number of adults to which they are equal under the immigration act : Adults - 413, children - 36 , Total 449. ( I don't fully understand this entry )
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
