Hi Joni,
I think that this may be your family:

Toxteth Park, Liverpool, Lancashire
Mersey View St.
John Foden Head 48 Bookkeeper Liverpool, Lancs
Elizabeth Foden Wife 46 Liverpool, Lancs
Hannah E Foden Dau 19 Dressmaker Toxteth Park, Lancs
Josius Foden son 14 Toxteth Park, Lancs
David C Foden son 8 Toxteth Park, Lancs
RG9/2706 Folio 35 Page 6

Toxteth Park, Lancashire
Grafton St.
Elizabeth Foden Head Widow 56 Liverpool, Lancs
Hannah E Foden dau 27 Machinist Liverpool, Lancs
Josiah Foden son 24 Joiner Liverpool, Lancs
David Foden son 19 Apprentice Boilermaker Liverpool, Lancs
RG10/3802 Folio 91 Page 48

You can find Elizabeth Foden on the 1881 UK census at The name is spelled Fodden

Living in the same house is Elizabeth's daughter in law, Elizabeth A. and her 4 children: Ellen, Willliam, Maggie and Hannah. I presume that this is David's wife but cannot find him on either the UK or Canadian census. Maybe he was on a ship at the time.

There is a reference for the marriage of David Collins Foden and Elizabeth Ann Evans on the FreeBMD web site.
December Q 1872 West Derby, Lancashire. Ref 8b-698

If you send for the marriage certificate it will confirm David's father. You can order the certificate over the interner from the General Register Office.

Hope this helps,
Pam B.
My ggggrandmother was a Foden from Liverpool.
