Looking for info (after 1911) on Ernest Charles Parsons (b.1877 London, UK) or Walter Henry Parsons (b.1883 London, UK)

The two gentlemen in question were my grandmother's half-brothers.  According to oral family history, both had emigrated from the UK to the USA.  My father said they may have entered the States via Canada; to the best of his knowledge, one or both settled in the Boston area.   Ernest Charles may have gone by his middle name -- my uncle once referred to him as his 'Uncle Charlie'.   Ernest Charles was born in Stepney; he was listed on the 1901 census, living at his father's home (occupation, gas company labourer).   His presence in the UK has not been verified as yet on the 1911 census. Walter Henry was born in West Ham -- as of the 1911 census, he was living at home (occupation, Clerk).   Their father's name was Frederick Samuel Parsons (1850-1926); their mother was Sophy Ann Long (1847-1891).

Sincere thanks in advance for any info or leads you can share.

edit: thank you for the first answer -- I should have specified: I'm hoping for leads on the boys' immigration -- whether they settled in the US (or Canada), whether they returned to the UK, etc.  After 1911, they seem to have vanished!

Also noted this record of banns for Frederick Samuel Parsons to Sophy Long  13 Dec 1874 at Stepney St Dunstan and All Saints

 he is of the parish but she is of Romsey, Hampshire.

in which case her birth records a middle name of Ann
