Not sure if you're still checking this as the thread is from 2002, but my great-grandfather was named George Barnden and he would have gone to Canada from England right around that time. But my family told me that he was from Liverpool? Is this correct? I believe that he settled in Essex, Ontario, Canada and had a daughter, Lily in 1917 (not sure if there were any other kids). Moved to Windsor, Ontario later from Essex.
