Cavert, Mary Beth. “The Woolners”. The Shining Scroll (1998): 5-6. Print.
The name Woolner is one that students of Lucy Maud Montgomery will recognize. It is the maiden name of Maud's grandmother, Lucy Ann Woolner Macneill, and the middle name of her mother, Clara Woolner Macneill. The Woolners came to PEI in 1836 from Dunwich, England when Lucy Woolner was twelve years old. She had four sisters and five brothers. All of them were born in England except for the youngest daughter (b. 1836) and youngest son, named Frederic, who was born on PEI in 1842., Source type: Print(0)
