The 1920 City of Toronto Directory records the family as living at 13 Alcina Avenue, very close to his parents' bakery. In 1924, the family lived at 18A Vaughan Road; in 1933 they lived at 110 Alcina Avenue. By 1937, John William and Selina lived at 116 Hope Street. Selina died there in 1937; John died there in 1948.

     "In the years 1903-04, the lives of Reuben and Ellen Holmes changed dramatically, as the entire Holmes family moved from Derby to Toronto, Ontario.

By 1910, the following information appears in a directory for the city of Toronto: “HOLMES, Reuben baker 1366 Bathurst, h same.” It was from this location (photographed in 2005) that Reuben operated the Holmes Bakery. Another key source of information is the Canadian census of 1911. It shows Reuben and Ellen at 1366 Bathurst Street, with son Ernest, and his wife, Isabella. Also living with Reuben and Ellen were two nephews, Bertram Alton and Andrew Brooks (see below). By 1918, according to the City of Toronto directory, Reuben listed his occupation as “elevator operator;” in 1920 he was a “ship builder;” and in 1922, he was a “bailiff” at city hall.

On his marriage license, Ernest Holmes provided another clue about when the Holmes Family arrived in Canada, as he stated that he had been living in Toronto since June 1st 1903. According to the Canadian Census of 1911, Ernest & Bella lived with his parents. Like his father, Ernest listed his occupation as baker. On December 7th 1914, Ernest completed his Paper of Attestation to also join the Canadian Expeditionary Force. As with the 1911 census, he again listed his address as 1366 Bathurst Street, and his occupation as baker. Not surprisingly, he served as a baker in France.
Following World War One, Ernest returned to his family in Toronto. However, in the later 1920's, Ernest and Bella moved their three children, Isabel, Mary, and Frank, to British Columbia.
Isabel married Ken Wilson, and lived in Portland, Oregon as of 1969.
