The Trapnel family emigrated to the USA abt 1911.

FamilySearch has several records, including images of the actual Census forms and Passenger Lists. Please search out these images as they often contain far more info than the following transcripts.

Some examples are;

Husband Frederick and both children are also on the list. Apparently Frederick's brother Ed M Trapnell is already in the USA. See

It's interesting to see they travelled on RMS Mauretania, the first of Cunard's "super liners" and a very well-known and popular ship. Entering service only a couple of years before the Trapnell's voyage, she soon gained the Blue Riband for the fastest trans-Atlantic crossing. I wonder if sailing on this prestigious Cunard ship shows the Trapnell's to be fairly well-off people ?. Mauretania's long career included being a troopship at Gallipoli during WW1, filling the void left by her sister-ship Lusitania after her infamous sinking by U Boat in 1915 which in many ways led to the USA entering WW1.

And so on, including more sea voyages.
It appears that son Kenneth returned to the UK alone, perhaps for his studies to become a chemist, but eventually settled in California too. Here are just some of those results.
