    Default Looking for info on James Edward Wakeman

    Hi! I'm looking for info on James Edward Wakeman (born ~1863? and emigrated to Canada in 1905). Lee Weller mentioned him in a post here:

    "Other relatives (a nephew with family - James Edward Wakeman) also ended up for a period around 1890 in or near Silsden (Uttley). James Edward Wakeman eventually migrated to western Canada (1905)."

    Any ideas or information would be appreciated!

I think that James was the son of William and Ann (Day) Wakeman, but the evidence isn't conclusive.

    Cephas (my gg-gfather) and his younger brother Albert moved to Silsden (W York.) sometime before the 1871 census where they continued to ply the nailmaking trade. Cephas later emigrated to USA with his wife and only son. Albert remained in Silsden.

    Other relatives (a nephew with family - James Edward Wakeman) also ended up for a period around 1890 in or near Silsden (Uttley). James Edward Wakeman eventually migrated to western Canada (1905).

    Cephas Wakeman was born in 1834 in Bromsgrove and married Maria Jones there in Dec 1858. I can't find them in the 1861 census, but he re-appears in the 1871 census, in Silsden, with wife Maria and son James Thomas (born in Silsden in Dec. 1866). This family migrates to the USA in 1874. Maria died there in 1884 and Cephas in 1886.

    Welcome to the British-Genealogy forums Brad
    Just as a base from which to work is this your James Edward Wakeman in the 1906 Canada Census of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta? The parents were a bit slack with birth dates.

    Theophilus Wakeman son 18 Immigration Year 1906 birth reg is 1899 mmn Morris reg dist KEIGHLEY West Riding of Yorkshire
    Ada Wakeman 14 dau Immigration Year 1906. birth actually registered 1892 KEIGHLEY mmn Morris
    Ceppas Wakeman 11 son Immigration Year 1906. birth reg June 1/4 Cephas Wakeman 1895 Skipton West Riding of Yorkshire. mmn Morris
    Sir Ophrey Wakeman 6 son Immigration Year 1906 Couldn't find this birth reg c1905 but did find this one
    Siroffrey Wakeman mother's maiden name Morris registration district West Derby March 1/4 1900 Vol 8b Page 523

    If the mother is Annie Morris then I can't find a record of her marriage to James.
