Margaret Allan

Seeking information on Margaret Allan, b. about 1860, probably near Cockermouth, Cumberland, UK. Had 3 children, Elizabeth May, b. 1881, Margaret, b. 1883, Edwin aka Robert, b. 1887. All children born at Elbemton. Margaret and Robert immigrated to Canada prior to WW1.
I have found a Margaret Allan age 1 on the 1861 Census in Cumberland. Unfortunately I can't find the family in later Censuses although I have only looked under the spelling Allan.

Paw Street, Workington
William Allen 33 Head Furnace Man (Blast) Ireland
Mary F Allan 30 wife Ireland
Mary Allan 10 dau Scotland
Hugh Allan 8 son Scotland
William Allan 5 son Scotland
Anne Allan 3 dau Scotland
Margaret Allan 1 dau Scotland

To emeltee:
Thanks for the list of names, but not sure if that in the Allan family I seek. I do not think there is an Irish or Scottish connection. Allan was the spelling of Margaret and her 3 children but errors could occur. Allen was another common spelling.
