"Within a year, Jenkins had arranged the subdivision of three of Savary’s five district lots into small-sized lots, but DL 1375 and its eastern neighbour, DL 1373, were left unsubdivided.

Around 1917, Jenkins transferred DL 1375 to Katharine Ashworth, the wife of George Johnston Ashworth. George Ashworth has been credited with providing the impetus for Jenkins’ subdivisions, but George Ashworth’s name does not appear on the documents and the Ashworth’s Savary properties were typically recorded in Katharine’s name."
