Have found on a shipping manifest for Helen travelling alone, back to Montreal Canada in 1928. Dates for residence in Canada are given as 1907 - 1925 (should this be 1928?). Home address she gave for Montreal is 275 Regent Avenue. She gave a sister's details back in Pollokshiels as contact in UK.

Canada is beginning to make a lot of sense - John had a brother James (Jimmie) who lived in Montreal and was also a timber merchant but why they all travelled around so much is a mystery still to be solved and as I think I am the only surviving relative who is the least bit interested I look forward to many hours of investigation and maybe even frustration!!
Many thanks again Monica,

Thank you all. There has to be a book in here somewhere but I will take many years to unfuddle my brain to sort this lot out!
