I am looking for ancestry information to fill out our tree.
In particular I am looking for information on William Greatrex and Susannah of England -- I don't know if they did a spelling change when they left England. In Canada they are still listed as Church of England and spelled it Greatrex.
Any help or finding others that relate would be great.
What I know:
William Greatrex b. 1825-1826 England, married Susannah (maiden name is unknown) b. 1845-46 England.
Went to Ontario Canada probably bet 1872-1875. Their first 5 children b. bet. 1864/5-1872/3(Henery, Agnis, Elenor, Christfer and Gorge) were born in England. Then the next 4 b. bet. 1874/5-1880(Willim, Frank, Alfred and Fredrick) were born in Ontario, Canada
Next generation down is Frank (above), b. 1875-1876 married Alma Seeley b. 1877-78, she was born in Nova Scotia.
There is a Greatrex family connection to Nova Scotia and Halifax harbor where during WW1 a munitions ship blew up in the harbor and took a lot of the town and took with it some of the Greatrex's or so family lore has told us.
Next generation down was born in Vancouver, BC and lived his adult life in Calif.
