Margaret LARET, my great grandmother was born somewhere in Ireland about 1813. She married my great grandfather, William REID, about 1834 (not known whether they married in Ireland or Canada). He came from Borrisokane, County Tipperary, Ireland. They settled in York County in the province of Ontario, Canada. The 1851-2 Canadian Census did not show where Margaret was born, but the 1871 & 1881 census records indicated she was born in Ireland.

In various documents such as marriages of Margaret’s children, there have been variations of her surname - Laute, Lavelior, Lawrence and Larritt. However, my father wrote that her maiden name was LARET.
We think Margaret LARET Reid died in 1893, the same year my father was born, so he would not have known her.

The spelling of the name LARET appears to mostly originate in Belgium, France or The Netherlands. It is possible that her family settled in Ireland as French Huguenots. I can’t find anything on Margaret LARET’s birth or family.

This is a brick wall for me – if anyone can shed some light on Margaret’s origins, please contact me – LindaE.
