Hi,

I had another good look through the social notices section of the paper and Mildred's daughter is mentioned many times.   There are mentions of her at parties, in weddings, playing tennis, etc..  A notice in the Oct 26th 1939 edition says that she is having a birthday party at the Royal York Hotel (the most elegant hotel in the city at that time).  In attendance are several guests, including the man she will later marry (Mr D Robertson) and Mr and Mrs I Ilsley. 

An announcement from May of 1941 has her at a wedding accompanied by D Robertson, who is a sportsman and has just become a Flying Officer with the RCAF. 

The March 6th 1942 edition page 26 mentions a shower for D.  Her mother Mrs ISAAC Ilsley and her grandmother Mrs Equie will "pour tea" at the shower.  THe wedding will be on March 14th in St. Clements Anglican Church.  Her husband has a couple of middle names which are given in this notice.  This should make him easier to find in other records. 

The March 16th 1942 issue, page 20, has a bit about the wedding.  The reception was at the King Edward Hotel (another grand hotel of that time period).  Her brother is listed as Bud Brady, an RAF Internee in Ireland, who celebrates his birthday on St. Patrick's Day. 

There is a birth announcement for the Robertsons - a daughter (unnamed) on April 17th 1943 at Toronto Western Hospital.  The husband is a Flight Lieutenant.

So, back to Mildred and when she may have married for the second time.    The Dec 16th 1937 issue, page 32 has the Equi's 50th anniversary write up.   Mildred is still Mrs Brady.  The jan 4th 1938 paper has a mention of D Brady hosting a shower at the home of her mother Mrs. C S Brady.

So, Mildred married Mr Isaac Ilsley somewhere between Jan 4th 1938 and Oct 26 1939.  I can't seem to find her wedding notice though - but the window is narrower now!!

Hi once more:

Mildred born in Toronto, Ontario -

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/VNGZ-2GT

Checked some available online Toronto Directories (most recent is 1922).

http://archive.org/search.php?query=publisher%3A%22Toronto%3A+Might+Directories+Ltd.%22

William J Equi sells liquors at 269 Yonge Street.  He lives at 412 Palmerston Av. 

1911 census for Equi family (must be mistranscribed everywhere... I had to find the family by the address)

See line 14...  412 Palmerston
http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1911/pdf/e002029872.pdf

William is a wine merchant

Re: Toni

My suggestion w/b to contact the cemetery directly and inquire about any information they may have about her (assuming female due to the 'i'). It is unfortunate that there is no maiden name given for 'her' as it is for Mildred. The cemetery may know whether 'she' was the wife of Charles Jr.

The 1921 Canada census is due to be released next year and this may shed some light on things.

thanks very much to all who helped. I'm marking this completed (for now!).

When I have time to chase up Mildred's death in England,
... (edit: 29 May 2012 .... Mildred died in England in Torbay, Devon)
and the cemetery in Toronto for Toni etc, I'll post again to let you all know.

Tonight, Googling at random, sort of ... I found another piece in the jigsaw.

airforce.ca/uploads/airforce/2009/07/ALPHA-BR.1.html

Charles Brady Junior died in Kelowna British Columbia 21 June 2000.
On my map, this looks about 200 km from the sea (east of Vancouver?)

I found in the Winnipeg Free Press that ...

1. A Charles Brady and wife came to Winnipeg in 1948.
2. our Charles Brady worked in Winnipeg after the war in the Dominion Rubber Company.

would there be Electoral records for Winnipeg in the 1940s-1950s?
