Burgess - Wilde family history

Hi all,
I am wondering if anyone could help with my Burgess/Wilde family history, Lancashire England I think. My grandmother was Sarah Emma Elizabeth Wilde 1894 - 1942 and my "grandfather" was James Henry Burgess . I am trying to establish if in fact James is my actual grandfather.
James immigrated to Bristol Massachusettes in 1908 and Sarah Wilde in 1912. I dont have a marriage certificate. They had three children there - Viola 1915, James and Raymond. I have records of Sarah and Viola travelling to ànd from England and USA in 1916.
At some stage Sarah and Viola moved back to St Helens Lancashire permanently.
I am wanting to clarify if James traveled back and forth from USA and UK. I have found a couple of possible that has his approx birth year 1894. One was from Southampton 28/7/1924. One would work in around my father's birth - depart Liverpoole 22/12/1928.

I would be very grateful for any help on this or finding any other names ect or information of gg grandparent or further back.

Regards Lyn Best Australia
