Hi Everyone:

And to think that only 10 days ago Shane wrote " Hubert is a complete blank at the moment". What a difference a week can make! I can't believe how much information has been found about him and his family in such a short while. It is so interesting reading about this branch of the family. Thanks for posting the photos Maria. It's wonderful when you can put faces to the names.

Hello Maria and a rather belated welcome from me

I have just been doing some googling and found a reference to one of Hubert's daughters, which may help trace that line:

It's from the Canadian Union Messenger, Vol. 45, No. 20, October 15, 1976
(The 'official organ of the Canadian Union Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church'), which I found by searching for "Hubert Bayliss" and "Tinkler".

Three Cousins Leave for Mission Service in Africa

'Three grandchildren of Arthur Tinkler of Kelowna, British Columbia, left at the end of August for mission service in Africa, - Eileen Moores, Joyce Van Scheik and Don Abbey.

Eileen Moores is the daughter of Kathleen (Tinkler) and Hubert Bayliss of Kelowna, B.C.  Her husband is Robert Martin Moores whose parents live at South River, Ontario.  Eileen and Martin with their three daughters are returning to Nairobi, Kenya, where Martin is treasurer of the East Africa Union Conference.  They have spent the past six years there in the mission field...'

Perhaps this will give a few new leads . . .

Jane

my family history book has the following information:

Hubert George Oliver Bayliss b. 4 January 1907

married Kathleen Tinkler

children:

Hetty Evelyn b. 11 June 1943

Eileen May b. 13 May 1944

--------------------

I have found more information on ancestry.ca including the arrival in Canada on 3 June 1912 aboard the Megantic of the mother, Ada, with three kids, Beaulah, William and Hubert.

I have started inputting my husband's genealogical records into ancestry.ca as "Thorburn family"

Cheers, Marla Thorburn

I found it very interesting that you found information about William Albert Bayliss and Bayliss Neon from the Devlin Electric Sign Company website.  I made that website when I was working for that company, but there has since been a rift in the family and my husband and I are now running our own company called Coast Signs.  It is very sad that the family business broke apart, but it is rare for family businesses to make it to the third generation.  My husband and his two brothers and myself were running the company, but my husband was the only brother to get married and have kids.  Our eldest son was keen to work for the business with the goal of eventually becoming the president after his father.  My husband's two brothers had other plans and secretly plotted to take us out and sell the company's shop to a real estate developer.  Needless to say, we are no longer on speaking terms with them.

Hello and Welcome Maria

I'm pleased to see that you are from Vancouver Island.  My Grandparents moved to Vancouver Island in 1913 (my Grandmother was Elizabeth Oliver born in 1882) but they returned to Oxfordshire in August 1915 because of WW1.  Although they were only in Canada for a short time the memory of their time there stayed with them and I can still remember the stories they told about the train journey across Canada and through the Rocky mountains, about the Indians, the snow and the bears.  They worked for Sir Clive Woolley in house, which I think was called The Grange, and was somewhere near Duncan and a lake called Somenos.  When they settled back here in Oxfordshire they named their house 'Somenos' and this was the house where I was born.  So even though I have never been there Vancouver Island has always been a special place for me.

Bye for now - Linda (in Oxfordshire)

Hi Maria,

Great to have you join us here, really pleased to have made a connection with a descendant of the Canadian Bayliss branch, its a very interesting area of the tree from what I know to date.

Hopefully you will have seen and read through the thread General Oliver Discussion > The sad story of Hetty May Bayliss then the Bayliss family thereafter ... here on the messageboard where we previously discussed some of the early generations of this branch around the time when Joseph, Ada and the family first moved to Canada.

Also under Facts and Happenings > Fantastic Oliver family photograph on the main website there is a photograph of Joseph and Ada, their children and also all of Ada's siblings and their families, hopefully that will be of interest to you too.

You'll see that we've been looking into each of the branches of Joseph and Ada's children:

Honestly, Hubert is a complete blank at the moment.

I had previously located some information on William Albert Bayliss and that he had set up the neon lighting business (per the below link) but found out little else really and never manage to locate any pictures of William etc

http://www.devlinelectricsign.com/family_business.html

I think this perhaps the line that you come down?

Thanks again for joining and posting here Maria, hope we can share lots of fabulous information from your line!

Speak soon,
Shane

Hi Maria:

Welcome aboard. I remember following the thread for the Bayliss family earlier this year. William would have known my grandparents as they were living in Stonesfield when he was born (1899) and when the family left for Canada. I grew up in Stonesfield and now live in Saskatchewan.

I look forward to hearing more about the Bayliss family and I'm sure Shane will be able to tell us where our branches meet on the family tree.

Barb
