Sometimes I do general checkups of passenger list databases to see if I can find any more ancestor brothers and sisters emigrating. Well I found my great grandfather's brother Nathan James Stock born 1877 in Leigh Essex arrived in Canada in April 1910 on board the Southwark steamship. It said he was married, aged 34, brickmaker from England, a Wesleyan.

He was back in England by the 1911 census. He went on his own to Canada it seems. Maybe he went to check Canada out, decided it was not for him and his family and returned to England.

Now I can look for the outgoing passenger list and the incoming lists back to England inbetween April 1910 and 1911.
