    Notes 
    • Her birth was before civil registration in Canada, and there don't seem to be many surviving baptisms for Middlesex co where she was likely born (although she could have been born in Toronto before her parents moved to London, Mdx co).

      Wonder if Violet Robb was a grandmother or other ancestor? IGI doesn't show anything useful.
