I am sure our families are related but I think there are two strands to this family history which have got twisted. My husband's grandfather was John Henry Glew born 1865 in Goole, died 1912 in Manchester. He married, firstly, Amy Fisher in 1893. Their son William Henry Sykes Glew was born the same year, and Amy died at the end of the year. John Henry then married Amy's sister, Kate Glew in 1893. They had 7 children, only 2 survived infancy - Daisy born 1893 and Mabel born 1905. Mabel was my husband's mother. The Glew who went to Canada was John Henry's son, William Henry Sykes Glew, known as Harry. He married Margaret Stainton, a Scottish girl, in 1912 in Fylde reg.dis. They had 5 children, all born in Canada - Harry, Gordon, Cameron, Mabel and Pauline. I believe, therefore, that your grandparents must have been George Richard and Emily Glew. I have no information on their marriage date or children, but I have recorded their deaths in March quarter 1939. Nor do I have any information on George and John Henry's sister, Mary Catherine. Anything your father could tell me would be very interesting. So - I believe that my husband's mother, Mabel Glew (who died in 1962) and her half brother, William Henry Sykes Glew (Canada) are the first cousins of your father, and that would make you and my husband (coincidentally also called Adrian!) second cousins.
