Robert Edwin Bradwell born Apr-Jun 1883, christened on 27 May 1883 in Marple,Cheshire.

Robert went to Canada a year prior to his father in 1910, sailing on the SS Cassandra leaving the UK from Glasgow on 26 March 1910 and arriving in St. John New Brunswick on 5 April 1910. He can be found on the Canadian arrivals passenger list for the SS Cassandra, Robt E. Bradwell, Page 22, aged 27. The list records that Robert was going to Fenwick, Alberta, to work as a Gardener.

Just over a year later Robert was recorded in the Canadian 1911 census in Pelham Township in Welland county.

A few months later on 12 October 1911 Robert, a labourer, married Grace Williams, aged 32, the daughter of Thomas and Ellen Williams at the village of Fonthill, Pelham, Welland.

Robert was also identified as resident in Welland, Ontario, Canada in May 1918 as he was named as next of kin with that address on the "Draft Papers" of his brother George dated 9 May 1918.

For the census of 1921 Robert, aged 38, was living with his wife Grace, aged 43, and their daughter Mildred May aged 8 in St Catherines, Ontario (District 34 page 5). Robert was working a a Gardener and his date of arrival in Canada was given as 1910, with Grace arriving the following year in 1911.

Sadly Grace Bradwell died on 29 Apr 1923 at St. Catherines, Lincoln, Ontario, aged 45. She was identified as the daughter of Thomas Williams and Helen Williams and the wife of Robert Edwin Bradwell. 

Shortly after Grace's death it would seem that Robert sent his 2 young daughter Mildred May and Jessie N back to the UK possibly to stay with relatives of their mother Grace Williams in Wales as there is a record of a Mildred M and Jessie N Bradwell arriving in Liverpool from Canada on 1 May 24 on the SS Regina, aged 10 and 2 respectively. The address they are going to is recorded as Mare Crest Parade Llanfairfechan, North Wales.

Three and a half years later Robert Bradwell himself returned to the UK as there is a record of a Robert Bradwell arriving on 5 Dec 1927 in Liverpool on the SS Regina, The final address given was Wave Crest, Llanfairfechan. I would assume this is the same address as the children had gone to and one or other of Wave or Mare in the address is a mis-reading The looks like Robert remarried in 1935 as there is a marriage for a Robert E Bradwell to an Elsie Thomas in Oct-Dec 1935 Caernarvon Vol 11b Page 897. 

It looks like Elsie was born about June 1895 and died in 1978 in Caernarvon. I suspect there were no children from this marriage. However there are records of the marriages of his two children by Grace -

Mildred married a Robert J Evans in Oct-Dec 1940 in Bangor and I believe had at least one child - John G. born 1942 in Bangor. 

Jessie married an Evan T Jones in Apr-Jun 1939 in Bangor and I belive had at least one child - Iris born 1940 in Bangor.

Robert Edwin Bradwell died on 16 August 1952 at 45 Hendre Street, Llanbeblig,  aged 69, and was buried in the Llanbeblig Corporation Cemetery.

Ethel Bradwell born on 7 Aug 1885, christened on 25 Oct 1885 in Marple,Cheshire.

Ethel married Alexander Hendry, the son of Ebenezer Hendy and Agnes Williamson on 21st July 1909 in St. Martin's Church, Low Marple, Stockport. A;lexander was born on 23 Feb 1876 in Stirling, Scotland, where his parents ran the Stirling Station Hotel. His family moved to Glasgow after the death of his mother in 1892 where his father bacame a Silk Merchant. (For further details of Alexander Hendry, his siblings, parents and ancestry - Click here). The witnesses at the marriage were George Edwin Bradwell, Robert Edwin Bradwell, Elsie Vernon Bradwell, and Noel Bradwell. The George Edwin Bradwell could be Ethel's little brother George Edwin, but as he would only have been 14 it would seem likely that it was her father George Edwin.

In November 1910 their son Alexander was born in the Romiley district of Stockport and for the census of 1911 Alexander, his wife and young son were recorded at 22 Beechwood Avenue, Romiley, Stockport. The house had seven rooms not including the bathroom and this along with a servant suggest a fairly well heeled life style.

On 2 June 1911 Alexander Hendry along with Ethel and baby Alex set sail to Canada as they appear on the UK passenger list of the SS Empress of Britain which sailed from Liverpool on 2 June 1911 arriving in Quebec on 9 June 1911. They can be found on the Canadian arrivals passenger list for the SS Empress of Britain, Page 14, aged 35, 25 and 5 months respectively. Alexander is marked as a returning Canadian and they are recorded as going to farm at Didsbury, Alberta. Although it is difficult to make out in the original record, I think Alexander is claiming to have been farming there for 5 years, and this fits with what I believe is a record of an earlier trip to Canada by Alexander. There is a record in 1904 of an Alex Hendry, aged 28, a clerk, born in Stirlingshire, Scotland on the passenger list of the SS Parisian going to Canada sailing from Liverpool and arriving in Halifax, Nova Scotia on 10 December 1904. This Alex Hendry gave his ultimate destination as Calgarry. At this time in Canada's history very few people lived in western Canada and homesteaders were given a section of land (644 acres) in order to encourage settlement. It is interesting to consider that although Alexander's father in law, George Edwin Bradwell, was a farmer, Alexander himself had no farming background. So quite what made him think that a farming life in the wilderness of the Canadian prairies while living in a sod hut was preferable to life in Manchester working as a stockbroker I have no idea. What ever the reasoning behind the decision that is what Alexander and Ethel chose and were certainly off to in 1911 whether or not Alexander had already staked his claim to some land.

For the Canadian census of 1911, (which was started in June), Alexander was living in the Red Deer district of Alberta with his brother Robert who had come over to Canada the previous year on the SS. Corsican leaving Liverpool on 18 February 1910 and arriving in Halifax on 1 March 1910, as confirmed by this census record. He seems to be the head of the household so whether he had come over to look after a farm originally started by Alexander during his previously mooted earlier trip or whether Robert had also taken up on the Western Canadian land deal and this was his farm is unclear. I suspect the latter was the case and that Alex and his family were living there temporarily. Both Ethel and baby Alexander are incorrectly listed as born in Scotland although the month and year of date is correct. Alexander's brother Robert is recorded as the head of the household.

It would seem Alex Hendry and Ethel returned to the UK at some time prior to May 1912 as the birth of their daughter Margaret was recorded in the UK on 15 May 1912. There is a record of Alex Hendry returning to Canada with Ethel Alex and baby Margaret in 1913 on the UK passenger list of the SS Corsican which sailed from Liverpool on 15 September 1913 arriving in Quebec on 25 September 1913. They can be found on the Canadian arrivals passenger list for the SS Corsican Page 14, recorded as going to Didsbury, Alberta. They are all marked as returning Canadians but I suspect this was their first trip back after Margaret's birth and therefore this was her first time in Canada?

Alexander and Ethel's second son Noel Williamson Hendry was born in Didsbury on 2 January 2 1915, sometime later that year Alexander left to fight in the First World War, leaving his wife and three young children to cope on their own in what would presumably still have been a rudimentary farmstead on Canadian prairie in the winter on their own. They must have been tough. The following description of Alexander is from the WW1 Canadian draft info....

When times got tough later in the 1920s Alexander and Ethel gave up the farm and the family moved to Vancouver where Alexander got a job at the Vancouver stock exchange, presumably on the back of his experience in the U.K.. Alexander suffered from pernicious anaemia for quite a period of time and died on June 1 1943 age 67 in Vancouver at which point Ethel and her daughter Margaret (who remained a spinster for life) opened a small seamstress business and operated it until about 1960. Ethel died on 12 Jun 1975 in Vancouver, Canada.

Elsie Vernon Bradwell born Oct-Dec 1887, christened on 27 Nov 1887 in Marple,Cheshire.

There is a record of an Elsie Vernon Bradwell marrying a James Booth in the Cheshire Parish Registers. The marriage took place on 21 October 1910 , in Marple, Cheshire, with Elsie's father named as George Edwin Bradwell. I suspect the reference to other: George Booth, identifies James's father.

Noel Bradwell born on 27 Jan 1890, christened on 30 Mar 1891 in St Martin, Marple, Cheshire.

Noel Bradwell married Charles Harold Cooke 23 Nov 1911 at St Martin's Church, Low Marple, Stockport. (Cheshire BMD Ref: COOKE Charles Harold BRADWELL Noel Low Marple, St Martin Stockport ST72/1/68 UK BMD Ref: Oct-Dec 1911 Stockport Vol 8a page 76)

Ann Bradwell born on 22 Sep 1893, christened on 24 Mar 1894 in St Martin, Marple, Cheshire.

Ann came to Canada along with her father George and brother Harold and was recorded on the UK passenger list of the SS Canada as leaving the UK from Liverpool on 21 October 1911 and arriving in Quebec on 29 October 1911. They can all be found on the Canadian arrivals passenger list for the SS Canada, Page 12, aged 50, 16 and 11 respectively. It states that George was going to Didsbury, Alberta, to farm and to stay with married daughter, presumably Ethel, so it is assumed that Ann also went with him.

On 20 September 1912, in Didsbury, Alberta Ann Bradwell married a Robert T. Hendry.  The wedding certificate identifies Annie as aged 19, a spinster, resident in Didsbury, born in Marple, England, daughter of George Edwin Bradwell and Ann Walker. Robert Hendry was identified as aged 27 , a resident of Didsbury, born in Stirling, Stirlingshire, a bachelor and farmer, son of Eben Hendry and Agnes Williamson. The witnesses were A and E Gertz. Robert was the brother of the Alexander Hendry who had married Ann's sister Ethel on 21st July 1909 back in the UK in St. Martin's Church, Low Marple, Stockport. Whether Robert and Annie were also already an item prior back in the UK is unknown. (For further details of Robert Hendry, his siblings, parents and ancestry - Click here).

In 1912 Robert became a charter member of the United Farmers of Alberta and overtime gained the distinction of being the longest standing member of the organization living in the country.

Robert and Ann had three children : Robert born in 1913, John born in 1915, and Jean born in 1917.

For the census of 1921 Robert and Annie with their three cildren, Robert, Norman, and Elsie were living at in Westerdale, Red Deer, Alberta.

In 1923, Robert took his wife and family to Vancouver, British Columbia where he looked for work, but was not very successful. They lived very near to Stanley Park. Robert returned to Eagle Hill in 1924, while Annie and the children remained in Vancouver. He then left for High Prairie where the children joined him and settled down. During W.W.II, Robert. worked for the government in a department where his work was essential to winning the war. He spent the later 23 years with his daughter, Mrs. Charlie Bittle. 

Robert died on 3 July 1965 and was buried in St Marks Anglican Cemetery.

A very complete story of Robert and his descendants can found in " Pioneers Who Blazed the Trail", p 186; (Robert Hendry) "Trails We Blazed Together"; p. 978 -982 (Robert Hendry and his son John). " Pioneers Who Blazed the Trail", p 186; (Robert Hendry) is available at http://www.ourroots.ca

George followed his father to Canada a year after in 1912, sailing on the SS Virginian leaving the UK from Liverpool on 21 June 1912 and arriving in Quebec on 28 June 1912. He can be found on the Canadian arrivals passenger list for the SS Virginian, Page 35, aged 16. The list records that George was going "father" in Didsbury, Alberta to be a "Carpenter".
