Jordison Family

Alfred E Jordison, by Donald Hudson April 29, 2003 at 02:06:24; https://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/jordison/35/:

Son of Francis (Frank) Edmund and Margaret Ellen Tierney.

I believe that several contributors to this list are related to him and I have him on an extensive family tree as my wife is a grandchild of a Jordison.

Alfred Henry Jordison (1844-1924) married Teresa Elliot (ca 1851-1916) and the last three sons of this family emigrated to British Columbia in the early 1900s.They were: Henry Wilfred Jordison (1882-1956), who married firstly Amy Earl Cornish and secondly Isabella Johnson MacGregor; Francis Edmund Jordison (1884-1969), who married Margaret Ellen Tierney; and Cyril Oswald Jordison (ca 1885-1956), who married Florence Helen Jane Gathern. Whilst I have quite a bit of information on the ancestry of this family, there are many gaps on the descendants and I would be more than happy to share information with anyone who is interested though it might be easier to contact me directly at donald.hudson@ntlworld.com .I should add that my wife’s links with the above Jordisons is quite distant, but they do link in the village of Stainton-in-Cleveland in what used to be the North Riding of Yorkshire in the 1700s.
