1901 Canadian Census, Tillsonburg, Norfolk North County, Ontario. Repository: Ancestry. Surety: 4. Lists Hector McCrae (age 69, b. 25 Dec 1831, Ont.), wife Barbara [Budd] (age 69, b. 20 Jan 1831, England) and daughter Lea (age 42, b. 20 Nov 1858, Ont.), living in Tillsonburg, Ontario. Also in the household is widowed daughter Josephine [McCrae] Brown (age 33, b. 11 Mar 1868, Ont.) and Josephine's children Barbara Brown (age 5, b. 18 Nov 1895, Ont.) and Hector Brown (age 2, b. 15 Sep 1898, Ont.); "lodgers" William Cochran and Oliva Chalk; and "daughter" Pearl Heppurn (age 16, b. 12 May 1884, Ont.). Hector McCrae ia listed as a "machinist," William Cochran and Oliva Chalk are both listed as "apprentice machinists." Josephine Brown is listed as a "reporter." Pearl Heppurn is listed as a "domestic." Pearl's relationship to the family is unclear. She may be an adopted daughter, as Barbara [at age 53] was too old to be her mother. More research is needed to determine her relationship. Hector McCrae and his daughters are all listed as "Scotch" ethnicity. Barbara is listed as "English." Hector and Barbara are both listed as Methodist; their daughters are all listed as Baptist.
