Canadian Warburtons on Holiday in the UK

Bruce Warburton of Victoria, BC sent me the following photos of entries in a guest book somewhere in the UK. His daughter was sent them by a friend who found them. They are not Bruce’s relatives (members of the Houghton clan), and they don’t appear in any of my documented clans.

Does anyone know them? It would be nice to connect them to a larger clan.
