In 1911 Leonard is unmarried and working in Port Arthur, Ontario. The census records his year of immigration as 1908, which matches a passenger entry for L COLDRIDGE travelling from Liverpool to Quebec in 1908.
Leonard COLDRIDGE's marriage to Elisabeth Mary WESTON was recorded on 25th September 1911 in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
