JAMES & JOHN ROBB BELFAST, N.IRELAND

Searching for Ancestral information regarding Robb Family.

JAMES ROBB bc. 1855 married my great aunt, thought to have been Ellen Moore.
James Robb had brother, John Robb, they opened a large department store in Belfast.
John Robb sent James and his wife to Canada to open at similar store "Robbs". Photos of the family were taken in Toronto, also have photo of Mr James Robb taken in Belfast.
Children of marriage seem to have been 5 boys and 3 girls, taken in Toronto, Canada.

There was another branch of the Robb family who were in Toronto, Canada, who preceded them, who were possibly related to an Irwin family from Northern Ireland. Have photo of child William J. Irwin born 1875, photo taken in Toronto, Canada, in 1878. Also photo of child, Alexander James Robb born 1866.
My grat great uncle, Alexander Moore, (b.1845), son of James Moore and Anne nee McBride, married a Jane Robb.

Any information related to above families would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
