Birth GRO 4th qtr 1891CHATFIELD, Walter John Maidstone 2a 694-----Find A Grave Memorial# 150644933


Registration seems strange as family have this info.Walter John Chatfield born September 14, 1891 at 4 West Street, Horsham, Sussex West. Walter John n left England for Canada with an occupation marked as Grocer with his mother and brother – arrived in Canada October 8, 1909. Walter John and his wife are buried at Jardin Urgel Bourgie de Montreal – burial lot H261-1. Walter John married Mary Christie Urquhart in 1914 at the Montreal Presbyterian on Stanley, b 1883 in Stormont, Ontario.

Walter John left England with an occupation marked as Grocer for Canada with his mother and one brother arriving in Canada Oct. 8, 1909.-----In 1927 it is reasoned that he was a clerk at 115 Regent Ave., because of the entry in Lovell's Montreal Alphabetical Driectory.In the same directory for 1938 he was at 4972 Sherbrooke, Westmount.

He went to work for a grocer in Montreal and in 1938 opened Chatfield's Fine Grocery Store in Westmount which is a very upper class area in Montreal. The store remained open for 48 years. His sons Walter Duncan and Frank John and his son all worked there. The store sold a lot of imported goods from England to the wealthy people in Montreal as well as other groceries. They had all the Peak Freans, I can't think of the name of jams and jellies but they were all very English - as well as Christmas Crackers!Debra Chatfield Masse July 2012.-----Not found in 1901 UK Census.-----Canada Passenger ListsName: Walter ChatfieldEvent Type: ImmigrationEvent Date: Oct 1909Event Place: Quebec City, Quebec, CanadaGender: MaleAge: 18Birth Year (Estimated): 1891Birthplace: EnglandShip Name: VictorianOccupation: GrocerAffiliate Film Number: T-4764Digital Folder Number: 004542579Image Number: 00070-----Voyage to England:CHATFIELD, Walter born 1891 sailed 1960 Southampton to Montreal, Canada.Yes this was my grandfather - Walter J - he went for a visit to England after his wife (my grandmother died).
