Pete - I originally mistakenly wrote the marriage was Montreal - thanks to a very kind RootsChatter, they have corrected my mistake and it was Weston Ontario.

Margaret E. FOSTER - I searched high and low for that marriage (England and USA), without any luck at all. I never dreamed of looking at Canada!
I never knew Margaret's surname in the first place, so that was difficult enough, let alone having to think about looking in another country altogether - and one in between England and America I had no chance!
That is so good, thank you again!  8)

The original family hearsay went there was an Arthur WALKER that went to Canada, but we drew a complete blank on him as he has just never appeared on any searches.
Maybe now we are getting close, after all these years!  :)
