  • Name John Edwin MARSON 
    Born 8 Oct 1876  Inkersall, Derbyshire, England Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • John Edwin was creative when it came to details of his age.

      On the 1930 US Census return he declares himself 22 years younger than his true age.

      This is borne out by family members who also believed he was 20 years younger until the evidence became clear on his death.

    • John Edwin sailed on the SS Adriatic, leaving Liverpool on 3 Aug 1918 and arriving in New York on 14 Aug 1918.

      The ship's manifest shows he was a farmer, born in Staveley, Derbyshire and was in transit to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He was planning to join his wife in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

      The entry tells us he had previously been in Rochester, New York in 1905. and that his nearset relative in the UK was Arthur Marson, Wingworth Farm, Chesterfield.

    Notes 
    • There is clear documentary evidence that both John Edwin and Rhoda each remarried and raised further children with their new partners. I can find no evidence that their marriage was ended.

      Members of the family understand that John Edwin abandoned his family with Rhoda when he returned from military service at the end of the first War. There are indications he remained in some limited contact with his children.
