Hi,Do you know WHEN? Edith JOWETT nee SMITH and the children went back to England?
Have you searched Outbound records - to see if Esrau JOWETT also travelled back to England ?
Perhaps he passed away there? Or Edith may have gone back with the children - to settle family affairs there ?
Homestead Records are available from Provincial Archive.
There should be information about when the property was transferred to another person - giving you at least an idea of date of death.
