Thanks again to both of you.  I had seen the census 1911/21 census entries and the grave of William Lyall Snr. (d. 1923) but none of the rest of this amazing info so many many thanks for taking the time out to help a fellow researcher :-).  It's very satisying to be able to track down individuals who left few clues to their lives, had common names, and upped sticks to the other side of the world.

Thank you Sandra.  Thanks to you, I now how a wealth of information on the B.C. Browns. It does seem a bit of a mystery what became of John after 1952. It would seem most likely that he died in B.C. and at some time in the 50s or 60s.  Again, it doesn't really help having a name like 'John Brown'.  At least the Canadian Browns conquered the family's apparent aversion to having middle names which always make the genealogist's life a little easier!
