  • Notes 
    • William Brydon died without a will so Elizabeth petitioned the crown, with the co-signing by James and William Hogg for the estate to be released.

      In the1861 census she was with the Hogg family in York Twp., York County. She's born in New York and it states that she was married in 1824. This would be her first marriage: to James Hogg.
      Interestingly there's an Isabella Bald, 39,  of St. Catherines in the house as well. Perhaps an aunt or other connection to the Bald family.

      An 1866 Toronto directory lists Elizabeth Brydon on a farm at lot 7 con 2, King

      An 1873 Toronto city directory lists an Elizabeth Brydon, widow of William, at 119 and a half Parliament St.
