Storydello: Cordelia's Girlhood

Archie Knight's wife Cordelia was born in Montreal, where her father and his brothers filled many high positions. Her mother was from an equally prominent family in Ottawa.

Cordelia was the middle child of three. She and her sister and brother grew up with plenty of wealth and status, and all the responsibilities that went with it. "Corrie" was expected to marry someone with money and influence.

This picture is based on a photo of Cordelia from the Notman collection. You can see the photo here.
