I'm afraid it's highly unlikely that any relative of the family will see your post - though you might be lucky.

You can search for any names that you know in "Search all member trees" under "Search" at top right of this page, to see if any of the family are in anyone's tree on GR.
If so, click on "Find out More" to send a message to the tree owner, explaining your interest.
If they haven't changed their email address without telling GR, they will be notified of your message.

If you would like the helpers here to look into the family for you, please let us know what info you hope for.
You seem to know a lot about them already. Are you only interested in living people?

ladytee - the use of abbreviations may be obvious to you but not neceesarily to everyone else.

Cda is obviously Canada and I presume Sx is Sussex.

There is a death for Emma L Jeffery (age 57)in 1927 in the Steyning district, which would cover Worthing, Shoreham and some of the Downs. The death certificate from the GRO would confirm if this was the right one, but if yours married in 1884 this is unlilkely to be correct.

Edit: Emma is in two trees on Genes and a lot more on Ancestry. The suggestion there is that Emma died in. Vancouver in 1945
