  • Notes 
    • He was born as Wallace Fraser to John Alexander Fraser and Elizabeth Ludgate. Elizabeth died in childbirth and Wallace was adopted (maybe not formally) by his Aunt Margery Fraser Brydon in Sept 1898.

      The 1906 census calls him a nephew of John Brydon, head of the household. Actually he's Margery's nephew.

      Coincidentally there's a Wallace family next door to the John Brydon family in the 1901 census.
