ladyeatonFlora Mcrea Eaton, Lady Eaton, was the wife of Toronto department store president and heir Sir John Craig Eaton.

Born into a middle class family in Omemee, Ontario, as Flora McCrea, she moved to Toronto and became a nurse at Rotherham House, a private hospital on Sherbourne street. While working as a nurse, Flora met a young patient, John Craig Eaton, who was the son of Eaton’s department store founder Timothy Eaton. The two eventually fell in love, and were married. They built a massive mansion in 1911 to accommodate themselves and their growing family. Named Ardwold, the home was one of the most lavish ever constructed in Toronto.

In 1915, John Craig Eaton was knighted, and became Sir John Craig Eaton, and his wife, Lady Eaton.
