We also found this info in census records:
An "Ella Sclater" was born in 1876 in Shaldon, Devon, to Sarah Sclater, age 34, and Elias Sclater, age 32. In 1876 she lived in Shaldon, Devon, England. In 1891 at age 15, she was a daughter in census, living in St Nicholas, Devon, England. In 1901 at 25, her relation to Head of House was daughter living in St Nicholas, Devon, England. We assume this family is all related, by the unusual Sclater surname.
