The 1881 PEI census shows Mary A. Wise as 14 years old. Queens, Charlottetown, PEI.

John Bryenton:
John Bryenton living in 1890 in Highfield, Queen's County, Prince Edward Island according to secondary source, Atlantic Provinces Directory.

The 1881 census shows John living with Richard Wise & Mary A. Wise, probably brother of Joseph Wise, and living in a nearby location. The census shows him as 20 yr old, making a discrepancy with his birth date (1861 instead of 1864)

The 1901 census and prior census do not show the Bryenton's living at 42 Clarence Street, Amherst, Nova Scotia, so the family home there must have been purchased later than 1901. Gladys and Freda remembered the home as the one where they grew up.
