Searching for some headway on a Mabel Tunnicliffe-Crosby, born 1904 in England (her marriage record in Ontario is not terribly specific). Lists her parents as George Tunnicliffe-Crosby and Mabel Hart. (unable to find a possible couple pair for both these names)
This is for a friend and she's not super sure of the details, but was told Mabel T-C was born and adopted by her aunt, or another lady who lived on the property where she was raised. Mabel was not well to-do, but was raised with well to-do children, giving her a quality education (making us think there was some tie in with the 'man of the house' so to speak.
Mabel has a brother named Charlie too. (no birth year for him, sorry)
When Mabel was 'old enough', she and Charlie were sent to North America (assuming Canada, but not sure if entry thru USA first?). She was told to 'not come back to England'.
She married in 1927, in York co, ON (Toronto) to Wilfred Leo Slack, and they raised family in Montreal.
Searching for birth record info (there's lots of possibles, but really nothing that looks really good to my eyes yet), and how to find about possibility of adoption records that early?
Want to verify parent info is correct, and birth location if possible.
She died in the 1950's we think, Montreal area, unable to locate obituary yet too.
Crosby may be the surname of the family/people who adopted her/Raised her?
Sorry to be so vague with just England, but we have nothing else to go on yet.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
