Note on Wife: Ethel MICKLE

From the 'Herald & Visitor', Saturday June 1st 1912. "We heartily wish bon voyage to Miss Ethel Mickle, elder daughter of Mr Charles Mickle, of Cable Road, Hoylake, who sails tomorrow (Saturday) in the Tetonic for Winnipeg via Montreal. The young lady, who became engaged some four years ago, is going out to fulfill her promise to Mr Harold Foster, son of Mr & Mrs Thomas Foster, of Drummond Road. Her fiance served his articles in the Surveyors Department of the Hoylake and West Kirby District Council (of which his father was for many years the head), and about three years since he went to Canada, where he has been most successful in his profession. The young lady is to be accompanied by her father, who will 'give her away,' and who hopes to return in a few weeks time, having seen the nuptial knot tied, and leaving the young couple to make thay success in life which is wished for them by a large circle of friends, amongst whom we are pleased to count ourselves. We have pleasure in knowing that the voyagers will carry with them a large number of handsome and valuable presents, which will assist in reminding the young people of their friends in old England, as well as add to the comfort and beauty of their home in the far west."
