Hi,

You're welcome. :)

Yes, I think Ida and Mary were sisters.

The 1881 census has another child with Alfred and Francis, an Arthur Bevan age 15. His origin is given as English as opposed to Welch for everyone else. Wonder who he is? He didn't appear on the passenger list with the rest of the family. He apparently gives Alfred and Francis as his parents when he marries in 1890.

Interesting.
If Arthur really was 15 in 1881, then that puts his birth around 1866 & before his parents’ marriage. He may have arrived in Canada under another surname if he was an illegitimate son of either parent. I wonder if he was Frances' son? - she was about 10 years older than her husband.

But when Arthur marries Olive Amelia Ferguson in April 1890, he puts his age at 21, so born about 1869. He also says birth place is London.
Arthur seems to disappear – I can’t find him after 1890. In the 1891 census Olive is back living with her parents, apparently “single”. Then it seems that she marries (as a spinster) in 1893 to a Thomas Addison.
