Unfortunately the Canadian shipping lists are not indexed; you can find information about them at www.collectionscanada.ca, but you'd need to know a date to get anywhere.

In the WWI records Sydney is listed as Sidney John Skinner, his wife Emma Jessie:

In 1901 the family are in Devonport, Sidney Skinner aged 26 b. Bideford, Shoemaker Naval Barracks, b. Bideford, Emma, 28 b. Bideford, Lena, 4. Also a Willie Skinner, 18, b. Bideford Apprentice Boat Building, and an Ellen, aged 30, b. Bideford. (both of the latter are single)

I think Willie also came to Canada:

Sure enough in 1891 Willie is listed as one of Sydney's brothers:

There does seem to be a a tendancy in this family to have the wife slightly older than the husband!
