Do you mean Jessie was called Davies before she married, or did she remarry later?

Just posting the 1901 for background, it shows Arthur as a wee bit older than born 1895:

THORNE, Lillie Daughter Single F 11 1890 Waterloo, Lancashire
THORNE, Arthur Son Single M 6 1895 Waterloo, Lancashire
THORNE, George Son Single M 3 1898 Waterloo, Lancashire

I thought Jessie was born South Molton in Devon?

I've searched and searched and can't find anything that suggests Arthur went to Canada .....
