Hello,

I did check for marriages in England for Davina, Hugh, and Rachel but couldn't find any.

When I couldn't find them on the 1911 Census for either England or Scotland, I presumed they may have left for good (bar perhaps a visit home to the family).

Crickey! I promised you that I did check passenger lists.

They must have been doing very well for themselves in South America. This line has proven to be more interesting than I initially thought!

I have found a marriage and birth in Argentina which is too coincidental for it not to be connected.  As it was 1952/53 - the persons may still be living so I am sending the info by pm

The index on the link below has a Robert (H) Connon leaving London for Argentina in 1929 and again in 1938
