Question???

Hi All,

I am researching my mother-in-laws family (along with my own). We live in Ontario, Canada, but her great-great and great-grandfathers were born in England. I have seen some family lines showing a change in name from Shorten to Shorting.

Great-Great-Grandfather - James Shorting
b. England

m. Mary A. Beck
b. England

Great-Grandfather - SHORTING, WILLIAM `GEORGE`
b. 21 Sep 1865 in North Norfolk, England
d. 18 Aug 1929 in Agincourt, Ontario, Canada

m. KEE, MARY ELIZABETH (parents: Henry Kee and Maria Cole)
m. on 16 Mar 1893 in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada
b. 22 Dec 1872 in Mara, Scarborough, Ontario, Canada
d. 1938 in Agincourt, Ontario, Canada

Marriage Notice:
George William SHORTING, 24, farmer, North Norfolk England, Scarborough, s/o James SHORTING & Mary Ann BECK, married Mary Eliza KEE, 20, Mara, Scarborough, d/o Henry KEE & Maria COLE, witn: William MIDDLETON & Jennie CHAPMAN, both of Scarborough, 16 March 1893 at Scarborough.

I was wondering if anyone recognizes these names or can put me in touch with someone else who has research this family?

Thanks, Nancy
