My guess is that it went this way:

Eleanor Adeline UNKNOWN married a Mr HUDSON and they had:
Ella Etta, Ada Woods (who became GARDINER), and possibly even  Robert Allen

Then Mr HUDSON died

Eleanor Adeline HUDSON remarried, this time to Robert George GILLAN

That's the main way I can think of that Ada Woods HUDSON became Ada Woods (Hudson) GARDINER

Just a thought?

Good guess. Maybe someone else knows of more info on this family.
It's also possible that Alda Eleanor's LNAB was Hudson and she was unmarried when Ada was born.  If Alda later married Mr. Gillan and he adopted Ada, then her birth certificate might have been changed.
Thank you
Thank you for the perspective
