Thanks, Don, for helping us all and getting the photo site going. It is
My LATHAM's start in Middlewich, Cheshire, England as salt workers, ag labs,
and gardeners. They move to Toronto in 1863, to Saskatoon, in 1881/2 and to
New Westminster in 1888. These cities are all in Canada.
The key player is Peter LATHAM (1835-1912) who married Elizabeth WHITTLE in
1868, in Toronto. Some family returned to Toronto, but most stayed in BC.
(See photos of him and his children on the Latham special site).
