(notes: 010804-85 Charles Bricknell, 19, residing Sunnidale, born Mulmer, s/oGeorge Bricknell and Frances...possibly Morrison. Phoebe Smith, age 21, residing Goderich, Ontario, born in Beverly Township. d/o Albert Smith and Amelia ...illegible. Wit. J.B. Houle, of Flos, Ontario, and R.A. Bicknell of Sunnidale.

Marie, Ontario, in the 1901 census.

The family is at Ward 5, Toronto, 588 College Street. Charles is shown as running a confectionary store. With Charles and Phoebe are children Harold 24 and Lolla 21. Harold is shown as married. Also present is a Madge Bricknell, age 27, shown as married. Also present is a Lottie Harris, age 21, single. Since a marriage registration for Harold and Mary Harris has been found from 1910, it must be concluded that theentry 'Madge' is an error.

Phoebe's middle name and death information appear in the Toronto Star, Tuesday June 29, 1943.
