Bean Family originally from UK but emmigrated to canada 1910

Still on my BRICK WALL !! of the last 12 + years !! a Great Uncle called Valentine Bean , below is all the info I have on him , he seems to have dissapeared when he landed in Canada but Family here did write to him and say he married with a family so there has to be cennections some place , I wish I could track them down , perhaps some of you may be of help ?
His parents were Valentine Bean & Lucy Ann Roberts and I have info on most of his siblings, a sister Annie married a Sidney Thompson on 3rd. September 1910 in Wentworth , Hamilton , Ontario , so one wonders did he go over for the wedding ?
The Thompsons had 3 children : Victor , Doris & Edna ( none of whom I can trace, so there's another brick wall !! )
Another sister Louise married Stephen George Ferrell in England , December 1899 and migrated with the Ferrell family to Hamilton, Wentworth, Ontario, Canada in the spring of 1904 .
I have been able to trace that family but they were of no help in tracing the elusive Valentine !!

Family "recollections" have it that Valentine was some type of engineer in England and drove the dynamo for the lighting of a circus travelling the Uk .
some think he married the circus owners daughter but I have not been able to prove this and have not been able to trace the "circus" .

Valentine sailed from Liverpool on 12th. March 1910 on the "S/S Carthaginion" ( not easy to read ) bound for Halifax in Canada arriving March 28th. at 9.15 am.1910.

His ticket no: is 32818, he had 25 pound cash on his arrival, he was aged 36yrs. (1874) ,states he is married, has never been in Canada before, was born in England, speaks English, destination Hamilton, Ontario, former occupation : Engine Driver, Going to be a Farm Labourer, & denomination: Cof E,

In the 1881 census of Ewell, Kent, Valentine is noted with his family , living at "Cold Blow Cottage" aged 8 yrs. After that I can find no trace of him .Valentine Bean : Birth June Quarter 1873 Eastry, Kent. Vol. 2a page: 779

It would appear that Valentine was not married when he arrived in Canada, however, recent research by Ted Simpkins shows that on his manifest / passenger list for his 1910 trip he states he is married.Sooo the story thickens !!

mother's name: Lucy Ann

Some researchers that I have engaged seem to think that VALENTINE may have changed his name, I have no reason to believe this as a now deceased aunt used to write to the family in Canada , or so I am told , but he could have travelled to the states as one aunt seemed to remember that he died in the states while on a visit .
There must be family of this man out there some place and I am desparate to hear from them Please.
His sister ANNIE BEAN married a SIDNEY THOMPSON in Hamilton Ontario ,1910 so we wonder did he go to work for them after they married ?? I have tried to trace the THOMPSON family hoping for some information but so far that has been another brickwall the family of ANNIE and SIDNEY THOMPSON were: VICTOR THOMPSON, EDNA THOMPSON (McCONVILLE)DORIS THOMPSON ( BRANDOW )

some think he married the circus owners daughter but I have not been able to prove this and have not been able to trace the "circus" .Can some one out there help me trace this man or his family please.

N ita Bean

Relatives of NITA ANDERSON nee BEAN

Nita was born in Shepparton Victoria Australia on 20th. February 1911 to Stephen Dale Bean and Annie Heal, ( Annie was a widow and had children Ida May Heal and Clarrice Heal ) Nita had a brother Ronald Bean brn.18th. January 1912 in Geelong Victoria , Ronald married Beatrice Curtin and they had children : Dianne Shirley Bean brn.10-3-1949, Anita Bean brn. 19-6-1950 & Ronald Dale Bean brn.18-3-1955.
Unfortunately although I have Nita's wedding photo I had no name of her husband which I now find was Tom Anderson and would you believe that the day I found out her married name she had just died the day previous at the age of 99 years ( 3 months off 100 )
I would very much like to be in touch with the family of Ronald or even the families of Nita's half sisters .
If you can help me in this quest I would appreciate it very much.
