Mrs. Charles F. Notman, née Alice Hudson Pyke (1875-1959), was a daughter-in-law of William Notman, founder of the William Notman photographic studio in Montreal. In 1898, Alice married Charles Frederick Notman (1870-1955) at the Church of St. James the Apostle in Montreal. The couple's two children were Naomi Daintry (1899-1993) and James Geoffrey (1901-1974).
Charles Frederick Notman (1870-1955) was the seventh child of William Notman. In 1888, he began working at the Notman photographic studio in Boston. On the death of his father in 1891, Charles returned to Montreal where, in 1894, he formed a partnership with his brother William McFarlane (1857-1913) to run the studio.
Alice was widowed in 1955. She died four years later in 1959.
