Hi Gary
Thanks for the name of your g grandfather, I have Walter Elliot Jordison b October-December 1873 (when his birth was registered) in Middlesbrough, he was the son of Alfred Henry Jordison and Teresa Elliot. He had 8 siblings, several of whom emigrated to British Columbia around the time of WW1 or quite shortly after.
If you would like to contact me using my normal email ( I could send you a file with the Jordison tree on it. I would be very grateful for any information on Walter Elliot and his descendents you feel able to give. I have him with possibly two wives, neither of them a Mary! The first was Beatrice Isabella Newey, whom he married January-March 1891 in the Birmingham area (from FreeBMD data), and he had two daughters from this union (Eveline Beatrice M Jordison b July-September 1891 and Doris Mabel Jordison b October-December 1892 - both in Harborne, Staffordshire). This was from 1901 census information and FreeBMD again. In 1901, Walter was in Grimsby and Beatrice and the girls in Worcestershire. I am assuming the couple separated because I next have Walter on the ship Kroonland going to the US with a wife called Annie from Stoke on Trent. This was in 1916 and he said he had lived in Dublin (his parents had moved to Ireland and are buried in Carlingford Co. Louth). I had thought he had emigrated to the US but if he was a councillor in Ulverston then I have certainly got that wrong!
Look forward to hearing from you
Best wishes
