He was described as being 5' 3/4" tall with brown eyes, dark brown hair and a dark complexion. On his Attestation (enlistment) papers, he listed his next-of-kin as his father, Newman Vine Ashdown of Asquith.6

     The following newspaper article appeared in the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Saskatoon StarPhoenix 22 August 1916 :
The following article sheds some light on his return from England.
     Under-Age Buglers Not Taken For Overseas Units
     Several Boys Sent Back to Canada; Too Young to Bear The Hardships
     Buglers will not be accepted for the Canadian Expeditionary Force who do not come up to the physical requirements of the British military authorities in the same way as ordinary privates do. Half a dozen boys have returned to Canada because they did not measure up to the required standard.
     The boys who arrived were Arthur W. Chantry, who went away as bugle boy for the 46th Battalion; Albert Griffiths, who enlisted in a similar capacity for the 53rd Battalion, and A. J. Ford, who went away with the 65th.
     In addition another boy, J. F. Bannister, perhaps better known as "Peanuts" Bannister, who went away with one of the earlier contingents as a bugler, also came back, and a boy Ashdown, of Asquith, and another boy Summers of Gledhow, who were with the party, proceeded to their homes in the country.8

     He was born circa 1779 based upon stated age of 88 years at time of death on Dec. 18, 1867 per his tombstone.4 He was born on 26 December 1786 in Seamer parish, Yorkshire, England.5 Mayman married Charlotte Ackroyd on 25 November 1817 in Brompton By Sawdon, Yorkshire, England.6
     He died on 18 December 1867 in Collingwood Twp., Grey County, Ontario, Canada, at age 80.7,4 Mayman Green was buried after 18 December 1867 in White's Methodist Church Cemetery, Lot 18, Conc. 10, Collingwood Twp., Grey County, Ontario, Canada.8
     He was Baptised/Christened on 27 December 1786 in near, Scarborough, Yorkshire, England; Seamer parish.9,5
     Mayman Green was Labourer in 1822.10
     The 1861 Census of Clarkstown (Clarksburg) (An Illustrated History of Collingwood Township, page 315) lists an Issac Green. Is there a possible connection?

On page 332 of the same book, Mayman Green's record in the White cemetery gives his birth year as 1779. Parish records from England indicate a 1786 birth date. Other evidence is consistent to indicate they are the same person.11
     
Mayman Green left a will on 24 July 1867

which included the following: "also to my grandaughters Martha Ann Green Charlotte Jane Green and Eliza Green daughters of John Green aforesaid, sixteen dollars each as they severally attain the age of sixteen years."

John Green was designated to receive "during his natural life but no longer, the use and occupation of the east half of Lot number Twentyone in the Twelfth Concession of the Township of Collingwood, in the County of Grey."12
