    Notes 
    • He moved to Western Canada where most of his descendants still live.

      From Lynn Miers:

      My grandmother's parents, sister and two younger brothers moved to Byemore in March of 1908, and the brothers both put Swedenborgian as their religion on the enlistment papers for WWI. The Orchards were very close to the Pitman family in Wiltshire and they were all keen on New Jerusalem.  It was always an enormous source of  pride on my grandfather's part that Sir Isaac Pitman was his great-uncle, but, try as I might, I've never been able to verify it. I remember that my grandfather went to every denomination including the Spiritualist Church.

      My grandfather said he arrived in Canada with $1 in his pocket. He gave my grandmother 50 cents and hopped on a train where he worked as a cook until they could afford to move to Alberta to homestead. My grandmother, a qualified teacher and an accomplished pianist, became the first teacher in a one room schoolhouse while my father farmed. I have pictures of the sod house they lived in. Yikes! They finally decided farming was not for them and moved to Nelson B.C. where they eventually bought a block of stores and turned it into a huge hardware store. My grandfather bought up several properties in Victoria and they moved out here to retire.

      The pictures that I sent are from an album my grandfather kept.  The ones of Edwin and Mary, above, were not written on but my grandfather always said they were his grandparents and since the woman bears a strong resemblance to Henry Pitman O. I think it's a safe assumption that they were the Orchards and not the Steadmans.

      There are pictures in the album of men that closely resemble Ann F. Steadman and were probably brothers but, alas, we'll never know.
