Looking for family of William George Manners, Ontario

I'm looking for descendants of William George MANNERS, born Vernhams Dean, Hampshire, England, in 1880. He was a brother of my gt grandmother, Martha Mary Manners, and their parents were Edmund Manners and Emily Humphries. William married Rosa Alice Parker c.1901. First child Reginald born 1902, second child Ivy born 1905. William migrated to Galt, Ontario, Canada in 1905, and Rosa, Reginald and Ivy followed in 1907. Next children: Valentine Rosa Manners 1908 - 1934, and Edmund born 1910. They are in Galt in 1911 census. There was at least one more child, Edith - any more? An undated obituary for William states he moved to Welland in 1911 and died there age 68 [c.1948.] There is mention of "Manners Studios", and W G Somerville & Sons, Builders' Supplies about which I can find nothing. William was in the building trade. William's son Edmund is reputed to have been a Canadian Air Force photographer but I've found no evidence of that. Also, he returned to England for a visit some time. Would love to trace descendants. I have been given some photographs which may [or may not!] be of William and Rosa - would love to be sure! [I have "lost" a Peter Manners with whom I had contact some years ago, who was also related.]
