Notes:  *After reviewing the 13 Sources at the right, I conclude that
              they all refer to one and the same woman — even though
              her given and middle name varies from Source to Source.
              Following in chronological order are her name(s) as used in each of the 13 Sources:
Sophie Marion in 1879 FreeBMD Birth Index was born & living in Crediton District, Devon, England.
Sophia Maria   in 1881 England Census was then age  2 & living in Crediton District, Devon, England.
Sophia M.         in 1891 England Census was then age 12 & living in Exmouth, Devon, Eng., with aunt.
Sophie M.         in 1901 England Census was then age 22 & living in Devizes, Wilts, Eng., as boarder.
Sophie              in 1907 Passenger Lists at age 26? or 28 travels to Canada with brother Edwin.
Sophie Marian in 1917 Manitoba Vital Stats at age 38 gets married at Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Sophie Catt      in 1921 Canada Census was then age 41 & living in South Norfolk, Manitoba, Canada.
Sophie              in 1976 geography book confirms her 1917 marriage and subsequent children.
Sophie Marian in Garth Woodward's family history dies in 1971 in Manitoba and is buried there.?
Sophie Marian in Colene Munro's Catt family history dies in 1971 at age 92 at Sarnia, Ontario, Can.?
Sophie              in Marjorie Bennett's Catt family history defines Sophie's three children.
Sophie Marian in Hilary Jarrow's Jarrow family tree identifies Sophie's siblings & ancestors.
Sophia Maria   in 2013 letter from John Hutchins identifies Sophia's grandparents & uncle.
              I conclude that Sophie Marian are the most likely correct given and middle names of this
              person, and that Sophia was her nickname.

In 1901 at age 22 Sophie worked as a drapers assistant to a silk merchant and draper.  In 1907 she was reported as a housekeeper on a farm; however, her occupation entry is blurred and uncertain.
