I do not know how much of this has been written before, but I am following through on Florence Ellen Smith's surname.

Given that her father was Arthur England, I suggest that she was born Florence Ellen England  (not Smith) and her mother was therefore Thirza Grant. 
Her birth would have been in 1880, 6 of her 7 her siblings would have been born in Australia, and because she was already married, she failed to travel with her parents to Canada in 1906

Notes from FreeBMD
Florence Ellen England born 1880
married Arthur Edward J Smith in Sherborne 1903
married Arthur Edward J Smith died in Sherborne 1908
married George Batson in Sherborne 1909

If that fits, she is on my family tree, and because her mother Thirza was my great grandfather's sister, I have her mother's ancestry back to the 1700s in Winterborne Stoke and Chitterne in Wiltshire.
