I take it that this would be the right family in 1901.
10 8 104 Bissett Richard M Head M Jul 7 1846 54, b. ON r, English, Meth., carpenter
10 9 104 Bissett Erena F Wife M Nov 4 1845 55, b. England, emig 1865
10 10 104 Bissett Richard F. M Son S Dec 3 1878 22, b. ON u, Labourer
10 11 104 Bissett Ila L. F Daughter S Jun 30 1891 9, b. ON u
1901 Census of Canada
Subdistrict: London (City/Cité) Wards/Quartiers No. 3 and 4, MIDDLESEX (East/Est), ONTARIO

If so, then here's Richard & Emma's marriage which gives their parents, and a probable sister to Richard (his wife and sister having the same first name - interesting).

Vol 7, pg 43 (Huron Co): Richard BISSETT, 23, farmer, Canada, Usborne, s/o James & Fanny, married Emma CREECH, 23, England, Stephen, d/o William & Thursa, witn: Thomas BROOKS of Exeter & Emma BISSETT of Usborne, 13 Jan 1870 at Exeter

Putting together what follows, I roughly see this family as;
James Bissett
+ Fanny
Bissett Richard M Head M Jul 7 1846 54, b. ON r, Meth., carpenter
+ 1870 Erena/ Emma Creech F Wife M Nov 4 1845 55, b. England, emig 1865
1 BISSETT, Seldon . b. 1870 O <Ontario> Bible Christian
2 Bissett Richard F. M Son S Dec 3 1878 22, b. ON u, Labourer (Frank)
3 Bissett Ila L. F Daughter S Jun 30 1891 9, b. ON u
Emma Bissett, b. 1853 (m1 ? Long, m2. John Welsh)
John Bissett, b. 1857 (m. Sarah Miles)
Thomas Bissett, b. 1859
Fanny Bissett, b. 1866

And here are Richard & Emma in 1881.

I can't find the Creech's in 1881, except for William who is listed as William Cruch.
