  • Notes 
    • Alfred James, who went by the name "James," was married to Mary Jane Pinard, who appears to have been a near-by neighbour. He passed away in 1917 at age 53, and Mary Jane Brennan inherited the house. Mary Jane
      remarried to James Losty and moved to 140 Cobourg Street, which was a few blocks away in Lowertown. Mary Jane continued to rent the house at 316 Bruyè re and also did considerable benevolent work in Ottawa acting as the president of the women`s auxiliaries at Immaculata High School and the Ottawa General Hospital. She was noted in the newspaper as volunteering
      as late as 1949. She would have been about 80 years old by that time.
      In October of 1955, Mary Jane Losty (first marriage: Brennan, nee: Pinard) passed away at around the age of 87. James Losty (1867-1955) had already departed the world only a few months before in May. It appears that Mary Jane had no children with either husband as there is no mention of them in her final will. She did, however, leave money to distant relatives and her 316 Bruyè re property to a close friend, Lea Carriere. Lea sold the house in 1958 and lived until 1999 in Vanier. Following the departure of the Brennan’s, the
      house at 316 Bruyè re was inhabited by a number of different French-Canadian families throughout the 20th century.
