    Notes 
    • According to Tricia Stevenson Arthur emigrated to America in August 1908 and married Addie there. Addie was the daughter of William R DAVIS and his wife.

      Arthur's departure for the US is on a list at New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 (at Ancestry.com). Addie was with him on this trip so it looks as if this was a return visit to England

      The following details of a departure from England are at New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 (at Ancestry.com) - Arthur had evidently returned to England for some reason:
