Researching Garbutt line from Essa Twp, Simcoe County, Ontario, and later East Whitby, Ontario. My husband is a direct descendant of Ann Garbutt, born about 1861-65, Essa Twp., and died on June 1, 1888 a few days after giving birth to her third child in Brooklin, Ontario (East Whitby). She had married Albert Burton Cook, and they had three children, Ida Elizabeth, Frances Fanny and Albert James (our link is Albert). The 1871 Canadian census shows an Ann Garbutt in Essa Twp.; her father is listed as John Garbutt from England and mother, Elizabeth from Ireland (Elizabeth Cotter).
