Notes on Mappin & Webb reference a Canadian Government steamer named "Lady Evelyn" coming to assist in the sinking of Empress of Ireland in 1914. If the name comes up on silverwares, be advised that there was a Hotel "Lady Evelyn" in northern Ontario (1907-12 burned) related to an inland waterways steamboat/hotel company. On china, the name appears above a moosehead which may not be on silverwares.
