Reuben Francis Greathead
     Reuben Francis Greathead was born on 25 March 1896 in Bristol, Somerset, England.2,3,4 He was the son of Samuel F Greathead and Elizabeth Hyde. In the census of 31 March 1901 in 18 Walter Street, Bristol, Somerset, England, he was listed as the son of Samuel F Greathead.5 Reuben and Edith were two of the "home children" and were sent to Canada by Bernardo Homes. Reuben went on the ship Dominion leaving Liverpool on 24 May 1906. He arrived in Quebec on 3 June 1906. They met on the same farm and later married.3,6,7,8 In the census of 1 June 1911 in Ontario, Canada, he was listed as the domestic for the Worman family, and he helped on the farm.9 Reuben had a medical examination on 7 November 1917 at Port Hope from where he was drafted into military service on 3 January 1918 into 1st Depot Bn, E.O.Regt.C.E.F. The regiment number was 3055206. His service act letter and number was PC 97950. His date of birth was recorded a year later the actual date - I wonder why? He was listed as single and of methodist in religion. His trade was a railway fireman and he gave his next of kin as his sister Mrs Juliet Williams, from Wales, incorrectly someone had written Ontario on the sheet. I believe she lived across the "pond" in Wales, UK. His address was Orono R.R.1.Ont. It is great to see his signature on the form. He is also described as being five foot five inches tall, with a chest measurement of 37 inches, expandable by a further two inches. He was of fair complexion with blue eyes and red hair.10,11 He married Edith Florence Anderson, daughter of Daisy Florence Anderson, on 8 April 1921 in Brant, Ontario, Canada, Interestingly, Reuben stated the incorrect name of his father on his marriage certificate he said George, he also stated he thought his mother was called Julia but did not know her maiden name. I guess leaving England aged six was difficult for him to remember family names. Both George and Julia were names of his siblings. He was described as a labourer and Edith as a maid on their marriage certificate. The methodist ceremony was witnessed by Jane Schofield of 29 Terrace Hill Street, Brantford and Eleanor Smythe of 23 Terrace Hill Street, Brantford.3,12 Reuben was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 1 June 1921 in 297 Rawdon, Brantford County, Ontario, Canada, Reuben was a labourer living with his wife.13 Reuben lost touch with his English family until a small advertisement in an Ontario newspaper brought him back in touch with them. His first letter home talked about his small strawberry farm and explained that in the winter he worked in a tobacco factory. He sent a photograph home of him and his wife standing on the running board of a 1929 Chevrolet.14 Reuben arrived on board the ship Aquitania on 11 December 1947 at Southampton from Halifax, Nova Scotia. He gave the address in UK to which he was going as 98 Tylacelyn Road, Penygning, Bhadder, South Wales and his occupation as a farmer.15 Reuben died on 9 February 1981 in Canada aged 84.3
