  • Notes 
    • Emigrated to Canada along with her husband, Samuel Butterworth, in 1910.
      Have many letters to, from and about this lady, concerning her years in London during WWII, during which she survived the worst of the Blitz, when her house was bombed. Letters are generally between her son, Percy, who was with her in London at the time, and her grandson, Lawrence, living in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Emma had travelled to England for what was intended to be a short visit, but the outbreak of the war kept her there until 1946, when she moved into Lawrence's home in Thunder Bay, with his wife, Gladys, and their children Arlene and Alan. She lived with them until 1954. Alan remembered her as a grouchy old lady.
      After the death of their daughter Emilie, and the subsequent enlistment (and eventual death) of Emilie's husband Mathew S. S. Irving in WWII, she and her husband Samuel inherited the care of Emilie's two sons, Lawrence and Vernon. Have some letters from her to Lawrence when he was young, in which she scolds him for his shiftlessness.
      Her daughter, Madam Clara Butterworth-Phillips, was a well-known opera singer in England, and the wife of Montague Phillips, a renowned composer.
