Clinkskill/Clinkscale in Ontario c.1844

Surnames: Clinkscale, Clinkskill, Clinkscales, Baker, Evans
Anyone know of a branch from Scotland that came to Canada between 1823 & 1844? Our branch settled in Brock township, Ontario County, Ontario. John Clinkskill (sp. in 1851 census) was born abt. 1792 and his wife Margaret abt. 1794. Their daughter Jane was b. 1823 in Scotland, and married Peter Baker in Brock twp by 1844. Possible brothers in the Lakefield area, north of Peterborough, Ontario, were Robert Clinkscale(b.1812) and Peter Clinkscale (b.1820). Also a possible sister was Margaret (spelled Clinkskill in 1861 and Clinkscales in 1874) who was born around 1820 (?) and died in 1852 in Georgina twp, York Co, Ontario, right next to Brock twp, and was the first wife of George Evans.
This name was rare in Ontario in the 1800's so it's quite likely these are relatives. Any help would be appreciated
