Charles Arthur John Robert Brunton 1891

Hi, Brunton Clan. My father, Gordon Charles Brunton, celebrates his 80th on Dec. 27th and I have been "commissioned" by the family to research the family tree in honour of the occasion. Here's what I know and any help would be very much appreciated:

His father: Charles Arthur John Robert Brunton - dob August 1891. Married Hilda (Hylda?) Pritchard in 1920.

Born in Erith, Kent, she was the youngest of 10 as follows:

Hilda and Charles divorced in 1926 (virtually unheard of in those days and hence the split family and sketchy info.)

Charles re-married a Molly Darlington and they had one daughter, Jean Patricia Brunton, born in 1931 and tragically killed in a road accident 1948.

Charles Arthur had one sister, Dorothy.

He died abt. 1962.

His father was Charles Henry Brunton.
His mother's christian name was Mary Jane.

I am new to this and quite overwhelmed by the whole project . . . not to mention the fact that I now live in Vancouver, Canada and am doing this "long-distance" since all above-mentioned originated in UK and/or Scotland.

Thanks in advance for any help or information whatsoever. Hopefully, when I head over to UK for the big event I'll have something to show for my efforts.

Alison B-I
Vancouver, Canada.
