Birth*1828 Gertrude Agnes Harvey was born in 1828 at England; per being age 23 "next birthday" in 1851 census. 
(InHomeOf) Census18511851 She appeared on the 1851 census in #38 Thirken district 75, Shipton, Sherbrooke Co., Quebec, Canada. Her info on the census included - G A Harvey, age next birthday 23 b.England, Episcopalian - she's in the same household as her future husband John Barnard, and Arthur & Georgina Wells family. The only other person surnamed Harvey in Sherbrooke county who was born in England is married to a Harvey, not a Harvey herself. So it seems very unlikely that she came there to be with family. SPECULATION: Since she's with the Wells family, did they all travel together from Guelph Ontario, meeting John because he and Arthur Wells were both civil engineers? 
Association* She and (_Sophie?_) Harvey were associated; Her sister Sophia drew a pencil sketch of their grandfather's home in Bath England - see story and photos
