My great grandfather was Victor Glasspool and his wife was Margaret (Maggie) Sextroh. Victor was born 1872 in Surrey, England to Jesse and Harriet (Wildy/Wilday) Glasspool who were married on August 30, 1952 in Egham.
Jesse was the son of a Robert Glasspool (possibly of Berkshire) and I am still searching for his wife.
Jesse's occupation before emigrating to Canada was as a 'baker, grocer' in Wokingham and as I mentioned earlier married in Egham.
Note #1, I have found no siblings for Jesse Glasspool, son of Robert Glasspool.
Note #2, Victor had 10 known (to me) brothers and sisters. I tend to believe he was one of the youngest of his siblings, since his parents married in 1852 and Victor was born in 1871. Below is a list of Victor's brothers and sisters (in no particular order). Some may have emigrated to Ontario Canada with Jesse and Harriet (re-researching the date, but it may have been approximately 1880).
01. Walter Glasspool - emigrated to Ontario, Canada. US?
02. Henry Glasspool - emigrated to Ontario, Canada
03. Charles Glasspool
04. Elizabeth Glasspool
05. Polly Glasspool
06. Ned Glasspool (died April ?) - maybe Ned was Edwin??
07. Kate Glasspool
08. Mary Glasspool
09. Tom Glasspool
10. Robert Glasspool - I have some notes that Victor's brother Robert married 'Sarah' and had 3 children Rose, Harriet (Glasspool) Kniep (spouse: Louis Kniep (d. 1988) and Victor Glasspool (d. 30 Jul 1974).
