Bill, Probably your people arrived well before these dates....
Cdn Passenger Lists 1865-1922 perhaps your Devonians came over ....

Subject: [DEV] LIMEBEER, William, date of emigration
I am searchng for the date and ship that my ggrandfather William
Limebeer left Devon on?
William Limebeer was baptised at Chittlehampton on 20 October 1818 and
his mother Elizabeth Limebeer married James Towell at Chittlehampton in
December 1821. Elizabeth and James Towell had ten or more children and I
assume that William was raised in this family. I have not been able to
find any record of William in Devon and the first record I have of him
here in Ontario is his first marriage on 18 November 1845. I assume that
he arrived here shortly before this date possibly after 1843 or later.
A DNA test confirms that James Towell was not William Limebeer's father
but ne record of who?
I would very much like to find some record of the information I seek as
receiving it would provide a vital fact in my family history research.
Thank you for your advice or suggestions,
William J Limebeer
