      Acadia is 22-23-1 W5 north of Southland Drive to Heritage (82nd Ave) using
      the Capital Rodways PDF map from City of Calgary web site.

      Willow Park is 15-23-1 W5 south of Southland Drive (98th Ave) according to
      the online map with city streets and land descriptions. East of MacLeod
      Trail across from Tower Chrysler is close to someone else's memory of the
      1938-1959 Fred Perceval (Earl of Egmont) house location than the Best
      Western Hotel near Southland Drive, though that may have been the north
      corner of the property.

      If anyone can help with the Moodie family, I'm still trying to sort out the
      "second cousin" connection of Fred Perceval 1914-2001 and his wife Geraldine
      Anne Augusta Moodie ca 1913-1995 to find her relatives in the 1911 and
      earlier census records. Still missing her mother & siblings after working on
      this project most of the day.

      Most of these people had three first names, nicknames or are shown in some
      sources with initials. Many of them have a family surname as one of the
      middle names. Some of the children are not in birth order in the Moodie
      Family Tree on the collectionscanada.ca web site.

      There are major complications with the 1911 census due to handwriting,
      online image quality, census taker errors and people on the move. To help
      future researchers, I'm trying to suggest corrections for surnames. The 1911
      census index is complete and searchable from within Family Tree Maker 2006
      using the new ancestry.ca subscription _IF_ index workers and census taker
      were both accurate and the individual didn't use too many name
      variations. -- Elizabeth

      His property on Macleod Trail is now the location of the Willow Park
      Shopping Centre and Willow Park community, the legal description should be
      NW22-23-1W5. The farm was on the east side of Macleod Tr. at the bottom of
      the hill across from Renfrew Chrysler. You might try the AFHS library's
      collection of Henderson Directories for more info. I have an article from
      the August 1950 issue of THE COMINCO MAGAZINE about the neighbours of the
      Ammonia Plant which includes pictures of the earl his children the house and
      gate posts.

      Hi Elizabeth,

      The Earl of Egmont's property was located at SW 26-22-3 W5. Photos can be
      located in the Glenbow photo archive at:


      Just type "Earl of Egmont" in the search field. The search returned 20
      photos for me, most of which are of the Earl himself, but some are of the

      All the best,

      Can anyone tell me where the Earl of Egmont's 26 room ranch house was
      located on Macleod Trail prior to 1959? The history book "Our Foothills"
      about Priddis mentions the Willow Park subdivision. More specific
      are given for other Perceval ranch properties in the area.

      I remember seeing the house on the east side of Macleod Trail but
      found a picture of it on the Internet. Willow Park district is between
      Southland Drive (90th Ave) and Anderson Road (109th Ave.)

      One of my online contacts is looking for Perceval and Moodie family
      in the 1911 census. Cecelia (Moore) Perceval died the same day in 1916
      Father Lacombe. -- Elizabeth
