BirthMargaret Ann Phoebe Lawrason was born on 10 May 1840 at London Township. 
MarriageShe married Edmund Baynes-Reed on 26 October 1864 at London, Middlesex Co., Canada West.
The date that we have for the marriage of Edmund Baynes Reid and Margaret Ann Phoebe Lawrason is taken from the handwritten genealogy that appears in the Lawrason papers. (See Delores MacIntyre, Some Records of the Lawrason Family, p.27, Rev.2000.)
This was written by Lawrance Lawrason Jr., Margaret's father, and we must ascribe to it some veracity. Nothing resembling it, however, appears in Vol. 27 of County Marriage Registers of Ontario, Canada, 1858-1869, Middlesex County, index, by Elizabeth Hancocks, Global Heritage Press Inc, nor does it appear in the era's transcriptions provided by Ancestry. Lawrence writes as follows:

Margaret Ann Phoebe Lawrason, born in London, Upper Canada, on the 10th day of July, 1840; and was married to Edmund Baynes Reed at London, Ontario, on the 26th day of October, 1864.
DeathShe died on 30 March 1917 at Victoria, British Columbia, at age 76. 
BurialShe was buried at Ross Bay Cemetery, Victoria, B.C.. 
NoteFamilysearch provides a transcription only, extracted from British Columbia Death Registrations, 1872-1986, etc.

This shows the death of Margaret Anne Phoebe Reed on 30 March, 1917, at Victoria, British Columbia. Her age is shown as 76 and her date of birth as 10 July 1840. She is said to be widowed and that she was born in London, Ontario. Her parents are shown as Lawrence Lawrason and A. Lee. Her spouse's name is shown as E. Baynes-Reed.

It may be noted that family record often drop the first half of the surname, 'Baynes' and the record is then often found under Reed.
