A second registration has been found under 047629-73. The information is the same, but the father's profession is readable and is shown as 'broker'.

Amy is found with husband Robert and daughter Helen in Victoria, British Columbia, in the 1901 census. She has not been found in the 1911 census. At some point, her husband must have been deceased for she married Donald Campbell Ridout. We do not have a place or date for this marriage. Amy died May 1st, 1920.
