Notes for Ada Edna KNIBBS:

Ada's grandfather, Henry Theodore Knibbs isn't strictly a member of the Knibbs family. His parents were John and Ann BURT so his real name is Henry Theodore BURT. Henry's mother was widowed and then married Francis Knibbs (1793-1856).
Henry married as Henry Theodore BURT but at a later date, he assumed the surname KNIBBS.

I'm pretty sure it was this Ada died in 1954 and am told that she committed suicide.
