[TSL] Ship Unknown - UK > HALIFAX - c. 1923
Michelle Knowles <> on 06/30/2014


I'm searching for my paternal grandfather's ship record.

Full Name:  Benjamin KNOWLES
Age:  Abt. 22 or 23
Born: 1901 in Penryn, Mabe, Cornwall, UK
Destination:  Halifax, Canada in 1922 or 1923.

He might have sailed out of Liverpool, but I don't know for sure.

I don't have information for the first 8 years of his life here in Canada,
although it's thought that he went to the Yukon to mine gold during at
least part of this time. Around 1930, he moved to BC, & he married my
grandmother - Mildred Viola (nee Gustin) Little in 1939 in Cultus Lake.
They had twins - Elayne & Wayne - who were born in New Westminster.

Grandpa Knowles lived most of the rest of his life in Cloverdale, BC, & he
died in August 1971.

Any information or leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you!
