MILBURN family

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to find out what happened to some ancestors that emigrated to Canada in 1929, did they have any further descendants, etc. The family is that of:

Hudson MILBURN b,1896,Durham,England.
Elsie (Harriett) MILBURN (nee PORTINGALE),b,1896,Wiltshire,England.
Isabella J. MILBURN,b,1916,Bristol,England.
Donald MILBURN,b,1920,Bristol,England.
Hudson MILBURN,b,1926,Durham,England.
James MILBURN,b,1928,Durham,England.

According to the Canadian Passenger Lists they emigrated to Canada on 12th May 1929, aboard the Montrose, bound for Quebec.
The eldest son Donald MILBURN married a lady called Molly. Donald was a "Lieut D" in WW2 and his wife Molly was repatriated to Minburn, Alberta in 1946. They then had a son called John born circa 1948.

In May 1949 Molly, her son John, and her mother-in-law Harriett (Elsie) MILBURN returned to Weybridge, Surrey and also Norton St Philip, Bath in England

The three of them, Molly, John & Harriett then travelled back to Halifax, Nova Scotia in December 1949.

By May 1952 Donald MILBURN had become an Immigration Officer and the whole family travelled across to the Netherlands together.

By July 1959 Donald is back in England and then returned once again to Quebec and Montreal.

I have yet to find Molly and her son John returning to Canada between 1952 and 1959.
I think that some of the Milburn family may have settled near London Ontario, because when my grandfather was still alive, he visited them in Canada and bought me back a "London Tigers" T-shirt.
I would really appreciate any further help finding out what happened to this MILBURN family or their descendants in Canada.
Fingers crossed! Paul.
