YES that is them.  They must have gone home for a reason, perhaps someone died. I can't find a family travelling either 1904-5 or afterwards. I don't know who the child is, presuming it is Davina's but can't find a birth for him in Nova Scotia either.  Nova Scotia Archives cannot find his death, suggested he died else where and his body returned to be buried.

Ahh, you had this crossing entry already from 1913?

A possible 1911 census entry for Davina Craig and Annie Craig in 1911 Bathgate that might be worth checking...

Not sure who John Craig belongs to  :-\ Davina maybe too young to have a 3 year old son in 1913?

Monica

Added: Just from the index result, haven't viewed this 1911 entry. Same references (all with 662/01 006/00 016) for the following 3 Craigs. Looks like your family group for sure, still in Scotland. Archibald either in Canada or elsewhere in Scotland? The entries from Bathgate, West Lothian:

Annie Craig aged 56
Davina Craig (searched as Davina, index shows as Robina  :-\) aged 18
Jemima Craig 13

Oh Monica, I haven't been able to find any of the family on a 1911 Whitburn Census, only 1901. Actually I couldn't find a 1911 census I don't think. I found Davina married to Joseph MacFarlane 1919 in Nova Scotia.   She died in 1931.  Haven't found any children.

Just went back and edited by post on the possible family in 1911. They showed in Bathgate, not Whitburn. Sorry, clumsy of me to add wrong place  :P

Also, not sure if you saw, that whilst I searched for a Davina and up came one entry, when I looked at the index results on SP, Davina showed as Robina. However, see that Archibald and Annie also had a daughter called Robina.

Annie and Archibald's daughter Elizabeth married a Michael Gilli/es?

Some people have this entry for her and her father with her in 1911 in Cape Breton North-Victoria, Nova Scotia:

Michal Gilles 29
Elyebeth Gilles 21 b. Feb 1890
Annie Gilles 1 month
Archibad Creig 61 miner married b. Scotland. Immigration year 1905 (fits with the manifest entry mentioned earlier).

Yes there is a daughter Robina.  She married William Binnie in Scotland.  I am missing anything regarding Rachel born in 1883, I have found all others except Janet 1891 who could have died.
Bathgate makes sense with the census, Annie was born in Bathgate.  Her father James Smith is on the 1901 Whitburn census as a Widower, but can't find his death, or the death of his wife Ann nee Mitchell.  I made the assumption, that perhaps James Smith died and that is when they immigrated.  But hey how would I know.
Davina died in 1931 I think
Michael Gillis died in 1918 not sure how.  She then married a Joseph LeBlanc who died in 1937.  Not sure about her or any other children apart from Annie Catherine.
On that census 1911 in NS, I wondered about Archibald visiting or staying with Elizabeth & Michael, I have searched for his wife Annie but I couldn't find her anywhere.  My grandmother didn't get married until 1915 Jemima Craig, so she was around the area as well.  She married my Grandfather William Charles Tipton, first son born 1916 Sydney NS.

No I hadn't thought about the name Craik Annie.  Good Point.  Will try that too.
When I saw Creig, I thought about the accent and Craik fits too  :)
