Lavinia M. Stewart was born in St. John, New Brunswick, on 17 August 1857. She was the eldest child of the Rev. Charles Stewart and Harriet Starr. At an early age, she and her family moved to Sackville, New Brunswick, where her father was, for many years, the Dean of Theology at Mount Allison University. She was sister to Harriet “Hattie” Stewart (1862-1931).
