Michelle,

Further investigation (1851 census for Beverley parish Saint Martin) reveals that John Eldin snr and his wife Mary were not born in Yorkshire but in Lincolnshire:

John Eldin
Age: 71
Occupation: Labourer
Birth: Authorpe, Lincolnshire

Mary Eldin
Age: 70
Occupation: -
Birth: Biesby, Lincolnshire

Notes: The anomaly about place of birth in the 1841 census is quite common. It is all to do with Poor Relief !

Regards,

From the small amount of information i can find, it seems George and Martha did reside in Vancouver although it seems he was a gardner, doesn't really explain how he could afford the tribute to his mother?!

Michelle,

With reference to George Eldon (b 1846)

An examnation of the 1901 census reveals that George and Martha Eldon were visitors at the house of Thomas Foster, book-keeper, 40 Bootham, York. George Eldon's occupation was stated as unknown !

If I may be so bold, it may be worth putting another post on the forum about George and the stained glass window, which may attract attention from our Canadian contributors of which there are a few.

Regards,

Peter6

Hi there,

George Eldon was my Grandma's Great Uncle. She told me his story a few years ago, which was that he emigrated to Canada in 1885 and in 1896 was a park ranger. By 1904 he had risen to be the Superintendent of Parks, which was apparently fairly well paid and respected as a job.

Here is his picture: http://mv.ancestry.co.uk/viewer/e28a3dd ... 2778357069

and here's a link to information about his job: http://searcharchives.vancouver.ca/vancouver-park-board

Here's a final bit of info with his life story and images
