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
District Number: 87
Subdistrict Number: d-6
Archives Microfilm: T-6481

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.

Ignore the first message I wrote to you. OK? I don't know if my Bissetts came from the Devon or bideford area. All I know is my Great Grandmother Ila (Bissett) Gilling is the daughter or Richard & Erena (Creech) Bissett. Her Grandparents are is James & Fanny Bissett. You never know we could be related.

I used to visit Ila Giling and her family in St. Thomas in the 50's with my parents, Bill and Grace (Creech) Rollins. My mother's grandparents were James Creech and Grace Bissett of Exeter, Ontario. James' parents were William Creech and Thurza Newton of Selworthy, Somerset, England. Grace Bissett's parents were James Bissett and Fanny Westcott who both came from England. They are buried in the Exeter, Cemetery.

I am sure that we are related.
