I can only see one Archibald Stevenson with wife Eleanor in the area during that period.

Did son Archibald (born c1822) settle in Canada? if so there are a few more clues there as to Irish origin of family.

Then I've found more for you  :)

Archibald Stevenson (c1821 Plumstead, Kent-aft.1857) m. Elizabeth Jane (c1826 Woolwich, Kent-aft.1857)
1851 census- https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGLV-M9K
1857 to US https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:939V-R3QJ-Y?i=353&cc=1849782
? 1861 Canada- https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQWX-FND
? 1871 Canada- https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M47N-GWP
? 1881 Canada- https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MVFW-NZT
? death Canada https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q93-C9YJ-744Z-G?i=186&cc=1307826
a.   Ann Elizabeth Stevenson (c1846 Woolwich-aft.1857)
b.   Jane Stevenson (c1849 Woolwich-aft.1857)

If this is the right family then 1871 Canadian census says he's Scotch descent which point more to Northern Ireland rather than Dublin (where I found earlier Archibald Stevensons in various newspapers).

Blimey!

Thank you so much...I am so shocked....there was talk about a edmund Stephenson b1881 poss having another family in new zealand as he was a sailor, but this is a shock......did not think they had the money to immigrate ?
  Thank u thank u thank u

And the weirdest thing is I nearly went to Ontario my self to be a nanny with a friend in the 80's! 

so perhaps others in the stephenson family have gone with him hence me not being able to find them?

THANK YOU xx "Happy New Year" to you

Take Care Julia
