Trying to find the ancestry of
William Bruce LEMONDE
who married
Margaret Alice BIRCH,
probably in ENGLAND. Their son,
Frederick Bruce LEMONDE
was born 1903-07-25 in Islington, London, ENGLAND.
He married
Margaret Louisa BAILEY.
Their son,
Bruce Edmond LEMONDE
was born & married in ENGLAND
and served in the British Royal Navy.
From what Bruce remembers, he was on the East Coast of the U.S. on a British naval ship when he received a letter from a U.S. relatives; but, he doesn't recall the name of this female relative, who had recognized his photo in the local newspaper. Also, he doesn't recall whether this stopover was in MA or PA or elsewhere on the East Coast of the U.S.
Any help in researching these LEMONDE's would be appreciated.

    Thanks to William HARTLEY, who checked the 1891 & 1903 ENGLAND Census, he was able to find Frederick BRUCE LEMONDE's paternal grandparents: Frank Thomas LEMONDE & Jessie BRUCE, who were married in 1873. Frank Thomas died in 1879.

    It seems that Margaret Alice BIRCH, had at least 2 husbands, maybe more. She married to Robert STOCKWELL HASSELL in 1895, then married William BRUCE LEMONDE in 1914. But, Frederic BRUCE LEMONDE was born in 1903. Was Frederic William's son out of wedlock or a stepson?
