Seeking Jim English’s relatives

I am seeking your readers help with my family tree research. My grandfather – James (Jim) Albert English immigrated to Canada in 1901.

He subsequently married twice and whilst I have found a lot of information re: his first marriage and the children from this marriage (which are my direct ancestors). I have struggled to find any meaningful information relating to his second marriage.

He married Margaret Marshall in 1921 and had two two children – Robert and E C Higgins (this information came from the Campbell River Courier archives).  I know that he owned the Quinsam Hotel in Campbell River for a lot of years. He died in 1961.

Obviously it would be wonderful if I could make contact with any living relatives who may be able to help fill in the gaps for me.

Although I live in England (where he originated from) I am very keen to hear from any of my Canadian relatives.

I can be contacted via email at me.rose@tiscali.co.uk.
