NotesA birth registration was found for Frank Leslie Herbert: Year of Registration: 1901; Quarter of Registration: Apr-May-Jun; District: Reigate; County: Surrey; Volume: 2a; Page: 180. (Parents: Robert Boucher and Charlotte Fanny Chappell, married June 6, 1892 in Edmonton, Middlesex, England.)

In 1901, Frank L. Herbert, 1 month of age, was shown residing at 15 West Road, Reigate, Surrey, England. Other family members included: Arthur A. Herbert, 5; Charlotte F. Herbert, 26; Ernest W. G. Herbert, 3; Percy R. Herbert, 6; and Robert B. Herbert, 33, drapers manager. (Source: 1901 Census of England; Class: RG13; Piece: 628; Folio: 11; Page: 13.)

Barnardos reported that the children's father was a blackguard, "drunkard and destitute" and had deserted the children. His wife Charlotte Fanny (Chappell) Herbert was left to take care of the children and was not able to and the children were on the verge of starvation. It also stated that there were two children who were left in England, the oldest boy (Percy) and a baby daughter (who was later adopted out).

In 1908, Frank Herbert, 8 (along with brothers, Arthur Herbert, 13, and Ernest Herbert, 11), arrived at Quebec, Canada, along with a group of 81 Macpherson boys and girls accompanied by Mr. Merry and en route to Stratford, Ontario, Canada.

On May 1, 1922, at 181 Mornington Street, Stratford, Ontario, Canada, a marriage was registered between Frank Leslie Herbert, 21, pipe fitter, born in Aldershot, England to (Christian name unknown) Herbert and Fanny Chappelle; and Mary Catherine Dockrill, 20, born in London, England, to Samuel Dockrill and Margaret Norman.

Robert Boucher Herbert was son to John Herbert and had a brother James Boucher Herbert. In the 1901 census for both James and Robert they listed where they were born as Gloucestershire Gloucester.
