Jarvie - Scotland to Canada

In your "Jarvie" research, have you come across any information, that might be related to the following;

My Grandfather was a William Tankard Bell (b. 23/Oct/1866, d. 18/Aug/1945), however his original name in Edinburgh, Edinburgh Parish,
Midlothian, Scotland was William Bell Tankard. His father and mother were William Tankard (b. abt. 1845, d. abt. 1872) & Eliza Bell. His sisters were Sarah Jane Scott Tankard and Catherine Duncan Tankard.

William Tankard Bell came to Canada; a short time in Montreal, then to Watford, Ontario (about 1883/84) and finally, until his death lived in Port Stanley, Ontario.

William Tankard Sr.'s parents were William (John) Tankard and Sarah Scott. Sarah Scott eventually was married a 2nd time to a Joseph Jarvie. Sarah Scott’s parents were John Scott & Ann Gardner. Sarah & Joseph Jarvie had a son John. John Jarvie eventually married Eliza Bell when William Tankard died.

It is believed sometime after William Tankard Bell came to Canada, his sister Catherine who was married to a Mr. Kelley, and John Jarvie came to the Windsor, Ontario / Detroit Michigan area.

Any help on the surname, Tankard, Scott, Gardner, Jarvie and/or Bell would be appreciated. The records seem to be scarce on info.. Thanks!! Regards, RWR
