Thomas Atyeo and his family are recorded on the passenger list for the Canadian Pacific liner SS Montrose, which left Cardiff on 6 April 1929 bound for St John, New Brunswick. Their home address is given as Stoppard Hulse, Bishops Lydeard (a village in Somerset). Thomas’s age is given as 33 and his occupation as farming – so he was presumably a farm labourer who had been working at Stoppord Hulse, a property that has not been identified. His wife Hilda is 36 and their children are Thomas Francis Atyeo (age 14, also a farm labourer), Lilian Atyeo (9), Violet May Atyeo (7), Charles Henry Atyeo (5), Peggy Irene Atyeo (4) and Albert Edward Atyeo (1).
Thomas had been born at Middlezoy, 15 miles east of Bishops Lydeard, in 1896 to parents Frank Atyeo and Virtue Anna Richards. He married Hilda Shattock in 1914; they appear to have lived only for a couple of years after emigrating.
Their younger son Albert Edward Atyeo married Rose Christina Grant in 1958, had seven children, and lived until 1987.
