Margaret Wickliffe

Margaret was born in 1851 in Quebec.   Margaret was the daughter of Samuel Wickliffe and Mary Tiunelly.

Margaret married James E Townsend.


There are 71 census page images for the 1891 Census of Canada for Chatham, Quebec.  Searching each page located a mis-indexed entry for the family and reveals an adopted daughter from England!

The writing is very faint, and hard to make out, the name may be something like Millie or Miffet May.  She was 13? and she and both parents were born in England.

She isn't listed with them in 1881 is likely the daughter Mary born in Quebec 11 Jul 1877 listed with the family in 1901.

In 1911 there is a male lodger Lessly Griffitts, age 6, apparently born in Quebec, Apr 1905.
