Arthur Edward JENKINS, son of James & Minnie Kate JENKINS (nee Townsend), born Bristol
My Dad, his brother and sister were taken from their family at very early ages and sent to Canada as British Home children in 1905 and 1908. We have the history of the three sent and we have recently located survivors of another child, Mary Elizabeth, who was born in 1905. Now we have learned that there was a fifth child, Arthur Edward Jenkins, born in 1900 in Bristol, England to Minnie Kate Townsend Jenkins and James Jenkins. We believe that Arthur died in Haverfordwest, Dyfed, Wales in 1985 because all we know about Arthur, regards when & where he was born and died ... though he is thought to have run away to Wales when he was about 14 and apparently he remained there till his death. Is there anyone out there with any knowledge of this family, and could help us locate the survivors of Arthur ... Finding Arthur's family would be the final missing link in our family. Once again, Arthur Edward Jenkins, was born on 22 Jan 1900 to James Jenkins and Minnie Kate Jenkins (formerly Townsend) in Bristol, England. I am the daughter of William Jenkins, the 3rd child born to the family and we now live in the USA. Many Thaks for any assistance you can give in this matter, Lorraine Bisner.
