In Reply to: Lawrence Henry EWEN - Beverly, England by Rita Westmoreland Wright of 237


I am a granddaughter to Lawrence Henry Ewen.
According to the information I received from my grandfather & information I have gathered, you have a couple of small errors in the names of his parents. Also, he was born as Henry Lawrence Ewen and legally had his name changed apparently when he immigrated to the USA, to Lawrence Henry Ewen.

My grandparents divorced within a couple of years of my mothers birth. I have copies of the marriage license and his immigration documents around here somewhere. I found him via the Internet and spoke with him a couple of years ago, before the death of his 2nd wife.

He apprently was not wanting to become acquainted with my mother, whom he hadn't seen since she was an infant. My mom did write to him and provided him with verification of who she was, but he never responded.

I wonder if his second family may not have know that my mom existed or if he just didn't want to be bothered?

I would love to find out more about this family. You can email me at

Anyway, here is a bit of the information you are asking for.

Generation 1
1. HARRY HENRY2 EWEN (MICK1) was born September 24, 1883 in Beverley, East Riding - Yorkshire, England, and died May 21, 1950 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co., CA, USA. He married LAURA MAY DRYE in England, daughter of UNKNOWN DRYE and UNKNOWN WESTOBY.

Mom thinks she remember crawling around in her grandmothers skirts as a baby.
Children of HARRY EWEN and LAURA DRYE are:
2.       i.       LAWRENCE HENRY3 EWEN, b. December 14, 1907, Beverley, Yorkshire, England.
       ii.       UNKNOWN EWEN, b. Aft. 1907; d. In England, at a very young age, about 7?.

Died as a young child, age 7?, in England. He was the younger brother.

Generation No. 2

2. LAWRENCE HENRY3 EWEN (HARRY HENRY2, MICK1) was born December 14, 1907 in Beverley, Yorkshire, England. He married (1) FLORENCE ROSINA LIEBLEIN January 11, 1936 in Wiltshire Wedding Chapel, Los Angeles,California, daughter of EDWARD LIEBLEIN and FLORENCE KEYS. He married (2) CAROL (UNKNOWN) Aft. October 1938 in probably California.

Lawrence H. Ewen survived the 1915-1918 Zepplin Air Raids, in London, England and immigrated in 1920 to Quebec, Canada, via the Cunard shipping lines also known as Cunard Lines Ltd. The ship on which they arrived, the Aquitania, was the first one ever converted from coal to fuel oil.

From Quebec his family went to Montreal, then to Toronto. He waited for 3 months to be allowed to immigrate to the USA. He entered the USA via the Michigan Central Railway.

He was married to Florence Lieblein in Los Angeles, California.

He enjoys making jewelry and is a ham radio operator. He also likes to paint giant pine cones to look like indian chiefs with headresses. He is also particularily proud of his driving record, which is unblemished by any tickets.

I called Grandfather in February of 1999, he told me he had just lost his second wife in January. Told him I would call back.

3.       i.       KATHLEEN MARIE4 EWEN, b. October 08, 1936, Los Angeles, Los Angeles Co., CA.
       ii.       UNKNOWNFEMALE4 EWEN, b. Aft. 1938.
