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:
Florence
Edith
Cecily
Rosie
Grace
Nellie
Alice
Leonard
Wilfred

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.

Cheers,
Alison B-I
Vancouver, Canada.
