    • In the 1901 Canadian Census, Helen gave her birthdate as September 11, 1851 but she gave her age pretty consistently over the years translating to a birth year of 1845, and her birth may have been registered in England in the September quarter of 1844, so Sep 11 is taken to be correct, and the birth year of 1844 is taken to be correct.

    • James and Helen had no children (enumerated in the census). They were living in the same house as John and Elizabeth Bristow who were both born in England as James and Helen were, so perhaps the two couples were in some way related, or at least known to one another. Annie (35) and Mary E (28) Rice were also living with them, likely Helen's sisters.

    • Under the category of Religion, James described himself as a "Free Thinker". His wife Helen and his oldest son Alfred were Church of England, while the rest of the children were Methodist. There must have been some interesting discussions around the dinner table.
