About Herbert John Ormroyde

Herbert John Ormroyde was trained as a carpenter and on 26th August 1904 he left England and went to Motreal Quebec Canada to a district called Lachine in search of work. The passenger Record shows his occupation as Clerk. At this time telephone was not everywhere and so the main route for communication was by letter. During his time in Canada he sent to his mother and received back a multitude of letters which have been kept intact and passed down the generations. These letters are at this time (2009) held by Timothy Simon Ormroyde, however I manager to get my Mother Who lives with Tim to scan the letters into computer and I have the scans which I will try to add to the archive. These letters hold very interesting information of the thoughts and events during these years including Laurence James Ormroyde, Herberts younger brother being sent out to Canada for work and for Herbert to look out for. Unfortunatly Laurnce took to canoeing the Lawrence river one day and sadly drowned. The letters include a heart rendering communication back to England, informing them of their sond death and a mothers reply in return. He soon returned to Widnes England and established a Builders Merchant in Denton Street Widnes
