Notes for David G KNIBBS:

On 3 April, 1959, we see David aboard the ship Empress of Britian bound for Quebec and Montreal. He gave his address in the UK as 52 Parker St. Barrow-in-Furness. He was a Sheet Metal Worker by trade. and on the passenger list, he identified that his intended future country of residence was Canada.

On 15 July 1959, we see his wife Margaret, son Leslie and daughter Dianne aboard the ship Sylvania, sailing to Montreal. They each gave the same address in Barrow-in-Furness as David. Margaret was listed as a Housewife, Leslie a Scholar and Dianne, a child. The passenger list states their passports were issued in Scotland, and their intended country of future residence was Canada.

It's clear that the family returned to the UK at some point. We know that David himself died in Cumbria, and his daughter Dianne married in Cumbria in 1975. .
