A Surname Inquiry


Bill Deverell

 February 21, 2024

Looking for information on Eva Grace DEVERELL nee HOPKINS She was married to my Half Great Uncle Sydney George DEVERELL in 1926 at Niagara Falls
She is on the voters lists for Parry Sound area in 1950s and 1960s.
He returned to England in 1946.

The WW2 service record for Sydney George Deverell suggests he married twice in Canada and 2nd divorce around 1943/4
First divorce presumably early 1930s. Voters lists show first wife Eva in Muskoka area up to 1979
Second wife was called Ethel and there was daughter Shirley born mid-1930s.Shirley address as next of kin in WW2 given as c/o Miss Emma Colwell, Brighton, Ontario
I’m Waiting for more Ontario Vital Records to go online.
Sydney’s Residence in 1939 was probably in Toronto, Funston Ave.

In Cheshire, UK

    Muskoka Parry sound is a very large area. I would suggest that you contact a resource in Parry Sound itself to help you. Also in Canada our modern personal records are protected by privacy laws, Local newspapers, etc are the only sources available to the public.
    If you contact Nadine at the Museum on Tower Hill she will be able to help you or put you in touch with someone who will do the research.email manager@museumontowerhill.comHope this helps.
