According to a story that David Edwin Livingston Langton once told to his cousin Wined Dorothy Candler nee Langton...
Edwin Ralph and his first wife would have had a son together. Both mother and child were said to have died in Australia, because of a "BUG". It is not clear at all if the word "BUG" refers to a virus or an insect bite.
...The story is most likely a collection of half-truths. Edwin and Ruth did go to Australia, but the circumstances of their separation are still unknown. It is a fact that Ruth Winkworth died in England in 1894, eight years after Edwin Ralph re-married in Canada. Technically speaking, Edwin Ralph Langton was a bigamist. Perhaps the story David told Wined originated as a lie from Edwin Ralph himself; a cover story for what really happened.
Edwin Ralph is believed to have arrived for the first time in Canada aboard the Circassian, on the 18th of June, 1883. He initially went to Desoronto, Ontario, where he likely worked in the experimental gardens owned by the Rathbun Company. His first two sons, William Andrews and John Usmar, were born in Ontario. He then moved to St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, where his next two children, Ann Andrews and Henry "Harry" Henderson, were born. Eventually, he settled in Sillery, Quebec, where he had his last child, Ruth Penney. Perhaps she was named after his late first wife..
