I am related through Robert Bruce Barlow. I have never found a Millingham, England either. There are census records that indicate he is from England, as I'm sure you are well aware. I would think there would be travel logs from ships that came over for England. It would interesting to explore that avenue. I think a few trips to the Canadian version of a Wellington courthouse or some place that stores historical archives may provide answers not covered in the book. My grandmother said there was a fire that destroyed documents, but I do not know if that is true or not. Good Luck, we need it!
