Hello Everyone,
I am wondering if anyone could help me with any information on the ROBISON family of Haldimand Township. Albert “Bert” Robison born Sept 1874, Emma (CRACKLES) Robison born Nov 1885, Jannie born May 1898, George born August 1900, Robert born April 1905 and Alexander born June 1906. Alexander is my grandfather. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

The only births listed on are Alexander and Jennie. On both registrations , mother’s name is given as Emma Challis/Chalice.
Father’s name on Alexander’s rego is George Henry Bertal, living 5 miles from Grafton Village Northumberland. This was a Declaration of Birth given by mother Emma Robison at Owen Sound Grey County, 26 Jan 942.
I do not see a marriage rego for Bert & Emma.

1911 census Northumberland they are entered under the name Robinson.

George Henry Robison, 20, b Proton, labourer, living Sydenham Tp Grey County, s/o Bert Henry Robinson & Emma Challis, married Isla Jane Keeves/Keever, 18, b Brighton, living Sydenham , d/o Joseph Keeves / Keever & Minnie Nichols, witn: Ernest James & Mrs Snell , both of Owen Sound, 5 Feb 1921. #012014.
Birthplace of father of bridegroom: Proton Tp, Grey County.
That is all I could find on them.
Emma obviously was alive in 1942 to give birth declaration.

Alexander's sister, "Jennie" (as shown on the 1911 Census) was Emily Jane. She was born 10 May 1898 in Northumberland County & her parents were named as Bert Robison & Emma Chalice. She married Ernest James Snell on Nov 18 1918 in Owen Sound, Grey County, ON. When Alexander & Emily Jane's brother, George Henry, married Isla Jane Reeves, on Feb 5 1921 in Owen Sound, Emily Jane & her husband were the witnesses to the marriage.

Birth- George Robinson b. 3 June 1906 Male Northumberland Co., Haldimand Tp.-Con. 4 Lot 21, parents - Bertram Robinson, Emma Chalice (this must have been a twin of Alexander Angus Roy Robison since it's the same birth date). My note - The census records do not correspond to this birth date.

Their father, John Charles Robinson/Robison, was born in Kingston, ON, & died in Cobourg, Northumberland Co., on Sep 18 1931. He is buried in the Eddystone Cemetery in Northumberland County.
