Charles Grigg Parkyn1,2

Father*John Collingwood Parkyn1,2 b. c 1839
Mother*Elizabeth Grigg2 b. c 1832
Last Edited6 Jul 2020
     He was born on 26 January 1872 at Cardiff, Glamorganshire, Wales.1,2 Charles married Maud Ann Bridge between July 1901 and September 1901 at Norfolk, England.1,3 Charles married Margaret Lucinda Carvill on 8 February 1921 at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. He listed his occupation as a marine engineer and he was a widower. She was 21 years younger than him.4
     He died on 18 September 1924 at Manhattan, New York, New York, USA, at age 52.5
     On 7 July 1902 England, he joined the Royal Naval Reserve and in June 1908 was an ensign.6

Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "Parkyn, Major".
Family Background:
     His younger brother, Lindon may have been in Saskatchewan as well. A 1913 article references Lindon Parkyn "suffering a lapse of memory." This was confirmed by a legal notice giving his full name as Linden (sic) Collings Parkyn.
Other comments:
     Charles Parkyn, his wife and son came to Asquith from London in early 1909. He was a naval engineer within the Royal Navy Reserve with seniority dated to 7 July 1902. In April of 1909 he built a new "cottage" and barn on Miles street opposite the school. Already in Oct 1909 he was described as a "large land holder in the district," who was instrumental in having the poultry association acting with Asquith's first Agricultural Fair. In Feb 1910, he was appointed a Justice of the Peace. He was again appointed in 1913. In May 1911, he was appointed an inspector of steam boilers for the provincial Department of Public Works, continuing in this role for several years. This probably reflects his experience as a naval engineer. In 1913, he was a Major in the Asquith squadron of the Legion of Frontiersmen, hence the designation on the Honour Roll. On 07 August 1914, shortly after the declaration of war, he gathered naval reservists and escorted them to Halifax, hoping to be given a Naval assignment as well. This was not forthcoming, and he returned to the prairies. In March 1916, he was located in Prince Albert, recruiting for the 210th Battalion (Frontiersmen) to be made up of members of the Legion of Frontiersmen. In April, he enlisted as a private and was seeking a modern seven-roomed house in Nutana or City Park (Saskatoon) to rent. Enlisting as a private was a requirement for all who joined the 210th Battalion (Frontiersmen.) By November, he had risen thru the ranks, resigned and then the next day was commissioned as a Lieutenant. In Mar 1917, he was the main speaker at Saskatoon's Victoria Theatre under the auspices of the Citizens Recruiting Committee. Shortly after, he resigned his commission in the 210th, with no record of the reason.
     In 1920 his wife died in Saskatoon. He remarried in New Brunswick the following year and was back in Saskatchewan shortly after. Then we see that they went to New York from New Brunswick in 1923, declaring that they intended to stay 6 months or less. This changed, because in July 1924, they filed their intent to seek naturalization. He died in Manhattan in just over two months later, in September 1924.
Analysis:
     While "Major" is an unusual given name, I have encountered it before. I initially presumed that this was a given name and not a rank. Then I found a number of news announcements for steam engineer license examinations, referring to Chas. G. Parkyn (or similar name variants) of Asquith who conducted the examinations. Also, a Major Parkyn had a formation of the "Legion of Frontiersmen" (see Appendix I) at Asquith from early 1913. I now presume they were the same individual.
     Saskatoon news articles reference: 1) (1913) Lieut. Parkyn of Asquith hosting a supper for representatives of the Frontiersmen from Saskatoon, 2) (1914) Lieut. Parkyn of R.N. (Royal Navy) responded to a toast at the first annual banquet of the Legion in Saskatoon, 3) (1916) Major Parkyn lead a detachment of the Legion of Frontiersmen to Moose Jaw, 4) (1916) Capt.Dunn of the 210th Battalion (Legion of Frontiersmen) visited Major Parkyn in Saskatoon
     He was a man with many "ranks" including:
- Ensign (Royal Navy Lists)
- Private (initial rank in 210th Battalion)
- Lieutenant (final rank in 210th Battalion)
- Captain (post-war references in news reports)
- Major (Legion of Frontiersmen)
- Lieutenant-Commander, Royal Navy Retired (report of his 2nd wife's remarriage in 1938.)7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15

Canadian Military Service - WWI

     Charles Grigg Parkyn of Prince Albert began military service on 3 April 1916 at the age of 44 at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada, joining the 210th Battalion. He was a married Naval Engineer who had been in the Naval Reserve for 18 years. He was described as being 5' 6 1/2" with a fair complexion, blue eyes and fair hair. On his Attestation (enlistment) papers, he listed his next-of-kin as his wife, Maud Ann Parkyn of Prince Albert. He was assigned regimental number 255496.1
     On 14 November 1916 at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, he resigned his rank as Private to become a commissioned officer in the 210th Battalion. The next day, on his Officer's Declaration, he indicated he was active in the 60th Rifles of Canada (militia) and was a Royal Naval Reserve commissioned Engineer for 18 years. At this time his address was in Saskatoon, where his wife still resided.1 Charles Grigg Parkyn ended his military service on 2 April 1917 when he resigned his commission but there is no documentation of the reason.

Census Data

     Charles Grigg Parkyn appeared on the1891 British Census of at Glamorganshire, Wales, at Roath Parish, in the household of his parents, John Collingwood Parkyn and Elizabeth Parkyn, listed as an apprentice in an Engineer's shop.2
     Charles Parkyn and Maud appeared on the 1916 Canadian Census of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, enumerated 1 June 1916. Charles was enumerated as an Engineer with the R. Navy, with no entry in the "Military Service column. They reported immigrating to Canada in 1908.. Their children Harold were listed as living with them.16
     Charles G. Parkyn and Mrs. Parkyn were included on a passenger manifest for the "Victorian" having sailed from Liverpool. dated June 1905 Montréal, Québec, Canada, accompanied by their son, Charles. Their destination was Ingersol, Ontario.17 Charles G. Parkyn and Maud Parkyn were included on a passenger manifest for the "Carmania" which sailed from New York dated 24 February 1907 Liverpool, Lancashire, England, accompanied by their son, Charles H.. They were 2nd Class passengers.18 Charles Parkyn and Maud Parkyn immigrated on 23 January 1909 to St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, from Liverpool aboard the "Empress of Britain", accompanied by Charles. Their intended destination was Victoria, British Columbia.19,20
     Images of the 1911 census of Asquith are of poor quality with the bottom 10 lines of the name column completely damaged and unreadable. This means that 20% of the census for Asquith has been lost. I have been unable to idenitify the Parkyn family by name or by age and birthplace.21
     The following analysis is from my personal research and reflects my attempts to consolidate information from different sources.
If Charles had enlisted in April 1916, why did he not show his military status on the 1916 census?21

     In the obituary of Maud Ann Parkyn who died 11 June 1920, her husband, Charles Grigg Parkyn was listed as a survivor.22 He and Margaret Parkyn were pre-examined on 23 August 1923 at St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, intending to stay in New York for less than 6 months.20 Charles Grigg Parkyn and Margaret Lucinda Carvill attempted to cross the border but was rejected in March 1924 to St. John, New Brunswick, Canada.23 Charles Grigg Parkyn and Margaret Lucinda Carvill declared the intention to become naturalized on 15 July 1924 at New York, New York, USA. They had left St. John, New Brunswick aboard the vessel Govenor Dingley, arriving at the port of New York on 27 Aug 1923.24
     In the obituary of George Parkyn who died 30 July 1971, his father, George (sic) Parkyn was listed as predeceased.25

E. O'Brien1

Last Edited1 Apr 2020
     Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "O'Brien, E.".
Other comments:
     Sergeant O'Brien of Asquith was a member of the Legion of Frontiersmen. He was mentioned in the same article about the first annual Legion of Frontiersmen banquet that referred to Lieut. Parkyn. (See Appendix I for more about the Legion of Frontiersmen. )
Analysis:
     I considered that this might have been Edmund O'Brien (472308) who enlisted in Saskatoon in 1915, but he did not report any previous military experience. If he was a member of the Legion of Frontiersmen, he might have reported this experience.
     A September 1915 article about the farewell "smoker" for the 65th battalion noted that Private O'Brien sang "The Veteran" as well as an encoure, "We'll Never Let The Old Flag Fall." This was probably Pte. John Bray O'Brien from Lanigan who was in the initial contingent of the 65th when they embarked on the "Empress of Britain" on June 18th, 1916.2,3
