Passenger lists:

Hubert C Martin c1878, a single male, occupation Carver left Glasgow 3 May 1907 to Montreal, Canada.
Ship: Cassandra destination Quebec
Voyage of 24 days but couldn't see an exact date of arrival.

There is also a Mary Martin, no occupation and her age appears to be 29 on a different page, same ship. Nothing to go on, just same name as Hubert's sister.

Your family I think - if its not, then done a lot of typing for nothing :smilielol5:
