Robert & Mary may have emigrated to Canada between 1855 and 1857 as their son, Robert, was born in England and then their following daughter, Malena, was born in Ontario, Canada as noted in the 1871 British Census; however, the following 1881 Canadian Census shows that daughter,Mary J. Vodden, was born in Ontario, Canada in about 1858 which appears to be a transcription error since they also appear to have her age incorrect. Obtaining her birth certificate would authenticate this fact.
