Thanks for that info Carol ... have learned something new today. 
Derived from the noun margaron, meaning "pearl".
And I won't forget it, either.   ;)

Just eliminating the above Florence CRADOCK who lived at above address until her death in 1946.
[ She was the daughter of Amelia and Fernandino George CRADOCK - b. 1878 NZ ]

If this is the right family, and I have no reason to think it isnít, it is terribly sad. After the parents deaths the children are in a Scottish orphanage. Of the five children two die as babies, and the two boys are sent to Canada many years apart and to different places. I suspect they had no contact. And Mary goes to NZ and has the misfortune to get mixed up with Percy.

Mmm ... sorry, I'm lost about just which family (of 5 children) you are talking about ??
