The Ridout's of Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Documented here are photographs from an old family album that was put together by Donald Campbell Ridout of Toronto, or his son Howard Edgar Ridout. The subjects include family members related to Thomas Gibbs Ridout of Toronto and his offspring, George Chambury Ridout of Bristol England who immigrated to Toronto in 1821, and Ridout acquaintances. Most of the photographs have not been identified and we need your help. Keeping in mind that Eagles do not stoop for flies, your input is important and may clarify some of the subjects and their history We have organized the photographs by Photographer, City of Photographer. We believe most were taken between 1860 to 1890. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at
