John & Edith Dorothy Tasker Family

My great-grandparents John and Edith Dorothy Tasker were in England on the 1911 Census in Leeds, Yorkshire:

You can see that John was a machine shaver at a leather factory. And that Louis Albert was 2 and Norman was 3 months at the time.

John then immigrated to Canada in May of 1911 on the Hesperian. You can see that he lists himself as a bricklayer. JohnTaskerPassengerList1911

Edith Dorothy and her two sons follow not long after in September of 1911. They sail on the Empress of Britain.

In February 1915, John signed an attestation that he was willing to service overseas for Canada. You will note that he lists prior military experience. It is difficult to read but says something then Irish. They were living at 292 Pritchard Avenue in Winnipeg. He did serve in WW One for Canada and I have those papers that I will scan in.

In 1916 on the Canadian census, Edith and the children are living in Winnipeg and John is listed as being in France (WWI).

John is still working as a bricklayer and the children are as follows: Louis 8, Norman 6, John 3, and Marjorie 1. You will note that the census is written in French.

By 1921, the family is in Charleswood, Manitoba, Canada.

In 1923, they leave Canada and immigrate to America. Below are some of their immigration documents:
