Surname JARVIS, JERVIS particularly in England

This group does not have any discussions yet.
My name is Edward Jarvis and live in suburbs of Cleveland,Ohio in United States. I am married to Carrie Sines Jarvis and have a son Adam Jarvis. My mother (Denise Pidgeon Jarvis) and father (Joseph Jarvis who just passed Oct. 2012).
To distinguish myself from the other Christine Jarvis: I am in Canada. I'm new to this site / beginner at tracing my family. My grandfather was William Jarvis, also called Jack (John). William was sent to Canada with his brother Joe (Joseph) Jarvis, I believe by Barnardo schools pre-1918 (WW1). They worked farms in northern Ontario (Coldwater area). William married Blanche Wilson of Honey Harbour, Ontario Canada. William & Blanche had two children: my father Lavern Allan Jarvis, and Devere Frieda Jarvis (now Saunders). Would like to go back before William to his family, all of whom remained in England, as far as I know. Many thanks for any help!
I have run into a brick wall researching my Jarvis family. I have traced my roots back to Joseph Jarvis 1707-1781 in Fritwell England. I believe his parents were John 1680-1716 and Elizabeth (I think of Stoke Lyne) but I cannot find any information on them (will, marriage, death). Our branch of the family ended up going to Canada in 1855. I have yet to find any living relatives in England. Is there anyone who can help me ?
