Other Lands in Toronto, Canada
Bud Land always said the Law Land had brothers in Canada. I have not found any of his brothers in Canada. On the other hand, Elizabeth Sykes had siblings and two uncles in Canada.
There are indications that there was a Land family in the town of Elora about fifty miles west of Toronto. I have not established any connection between Law Land and the Lands in Elora. The thing that is interesting is that one of the Lands from Elora, Charles H. Land ended up living in Toronto very close to the Sykes and Law Land.
Charles H. Land and John Land are the only Lands I can find in Toronto. They do not appear to be closely related (if at all) to Law Land.
