Hugh Banks

  • b- Apr 22, 1893 , Golborne, Lancashire, UK
  • d- ,

Most likely owner of Banks Mine

* NOTE There were several people wiht similar names in the same area. I am fairly sure of the following information but some could likely be incorrect. Please Contact me if you have further information

* He enlisted in WWI in Winnipeg Feb 1, 1918, Regimental # 2380285,

  • Hugh was shown as Methodist, single, Miner and farmer 

1901 UK census shows James Banks as a Coal Hewer, age 39

ADDITIONAL INFO FOUND IN SEPT 2010

  • 1920 Hugh Banks age 27, returned from Liverpool to Quebec City, Canada on SS Megantic,
  • Sept 11, 1928, shown as single, (meaning wife and children below may not be accurate, or this is another Hugh Banks)
  • lived in Canada for 8 years when he came back this time,
  • born in England, heading to Taylorton SK, occupation Miner.
  • returning Canadian on CPR

then I found Hugh Banks immigrating June 30, 1913, arriving in Quebec City from Liverpool England on SS Lake Manitoba, age 20 He came with a brother, Thomas Banks, age 23, both joining a Miner brother at Taylorton SK, both shown as single, both Prim Methodist, both shown as Coal Miners. So now we have a Thomas Banks in the mix too.

May 6, 1912, Harry Banks, age 22, came to Quebec city from Liverpool, on SS megantic, single, Prim methodist born in England, heading to Taylorton SK, coalminer. He worked as coalminer for 9 years prior to this, planned on becoming a farmer.

now we know he was the possible first brother.
