When Laura Edith Irene Wardlaw was born on 25 February 1891, in Thornhill, York, Ontario, Canada, her father, Peter George Wardlaw, was 39 and her mother, Sarah Elizabeth Parsons, was 39. She married William James THOMSON on 20 March 1916, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She lived in York, Ontario, Canada in 1901 and Ontario, Canada in 1911. She died on 7 July 1981, at the age of 90, and was buried in Kleinburg, York, Canada West, British Colonial America.
Scottish: probably a habitational name from Wardlaw, in Kirkhill, Inverness, which is recorded as Wardelaue in 1202, or perhaps Wardlaw in Ayrs. However, the possibility that the Scottish family is related to the Wardlow family of Wardlow (Derbys) cannot be ruled out. The placenames derive from Old English weard ‘watch’ + hlāw ‘mound, hill’.
