Could this be Robert and Mary Brown with children Robert and Florence in 1901?

If so, Robert Sr and Mary were both born in Scotland and came to Canada in 1885 and 1886 respectively. 

Robert Wright Brown and Marie McCarlie marriage.  This says that Robert's father, Robert Finlay Brown was from Port Patrick, Scotland.

Is this the marriage of Robert Finley Brown and Mary Wright??  Toronto, 1887??...

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9Q97-Y39R-BJ4?i=877&cc=1784216

He works for the railway (1901 census says he is an Engineer),and they are both from Stranraer Scotland (fits with location of his birth mentioned on their son's marriage registration).

Do you have all of this?  Do you already know where in Scotland the Wrights are from, Mary's parents etc??  Are you only interested in Mary Wright's relatives' descendants here in Canada?

Hi RK, Thanks again.. The Wrights are from Stranraer in Scotland.. There mother was a Jane Morland who married a John Wright .. I did not have that marriage notice and I can see that Robert Brown is from Stranraer also .. Great info there.. I also note that John Morland Wright is a witness which is great info as I am trying to find out his fate .. Margaret Morland Wright was also a sister born in 1862 in Stranraer.. Not sure if she ended up in Canada.. There mother died in 1880 and I wonder if the father.. John Wright snr born abt 1835 (from Ireland) ended up in Canada ?? I cannot see him in Scotland.. Jane Morland is laid to rest in Stranraer... There was another sibling who was Alex Cairns Wright who married a Kenturah Tindall.. I am aware that Alex born 1872 in Stranraer ended up in Canada .. so maybe Margaret Morland Wright also ended up there.. as 3 out the 4 of the Wright siblings are noted by the looks of things ...

I am interested in all the descendants of all the Wright family mentioned.. These folk are related to myself through Mary Wright Nee Morland D 1880 .. Distant cousins ..
I really appreciate the info being offered .. it has opened up a few great leads already RK .. Thanks again .. fantastic info indeed

You are very welcome :) :)

This looks like Alex and Keturah, with 3 sons, in London Ontario in 1911.  Alex is a baker in a bake shop.

OK - I see you have quite a bit of information on Alex and Keturah already. 

So, we are looking for Jane Wright, John Morland Wright and Margaret Morland Wright (siblings of Mary Wright Brown)??  You want to know if they came to Canada, and if so...what happened to them.  Also, their father John Wright Sr...born in Ireland about 1835, but lived in Scotland.
