In Reply to: George J Clayton born about 1875 lived in Ont spouse Ellen by Jennifer Clayton of 3988

Hi. I found your family on a passenger list on a ship that left from Liverpool, England bound for Quebec:

13 Jul 1907 Lake Erie - final destination London, Ontario

Ellen M.F. Clayton, age 33
Evelyn Clayton, age 8
George Clayton, age 6
Percival J. Clayton, age 4
John A. Clayton, age 3
Anne E. Clayton, age 2

That means their son Joseph was born in Ontario. I found his birth record:

Ontario, Canada Births, 1869-1911
about Joseph Wilfred Clayton
Name:        Joseph Wilfred Clayton
Date of Birth:        8 Nov 1909

Birth County:        Middlesex
Father's name:        George Joseph Clayton
Mother's name:        Ellen Mary Florence Smith
Archives of Ontario Microfilm:        MS929_211

It also stated that his parents were married in 1898 England. Of course I'm sure you know that from the 1911 Census, everyone was b. England except for Joseph.

So, here they are in the 1901 England Census:
