Mary Florence Heathorn
born Mary Florence Heathorn in Victoria, British Columbia, on July 17, 1867. Her father was William Heathorn (1828-1890), who was a bootmaker. Mary’s mother was Mary Claxton Warner (1826-1905). (Mary’s sister was Harriet Victoria Heathorn, who married Eliot Nixon Haworth. Eliot lived at 1047 Denman Street from 1907 to 1909.)

On January 8, 1890, in Victoria, Mary married Peter Frank Richardson (sometimes called Frank), who was a commission merchant.
Peter and Mary lived at the following addresses in Vancouver.
1897 to 1901 1008 Eveleigh Street (also Mrs. B.F. [sic] Richardson in 1901)

In 1901, Peter and Mary were living with Mary’s mother, Mary Heathorn. Their two sons, Francis (“Harrie”) and Cecil, were living with them. It is not clear what happened to Peter; it appears that he died before 1943.
