British Home Children in Canada, 1869-1930, that are not found on the Library and Archives Canada database

My Great Grandmother, Lillian Elizabeth Maryon, was born in London in 1874. At some point she somehow arrived in Ontario, Canada and married William Charles Bates in 1904. On her marriage license it asks for mother and father's names. She replied Unknown. I can't find her listed in the database. I wonder if there is a list of families who took in the "Home Children"? She is my road block. I do have a picture of her with a Grandpa Miller. We don't have the surname Miller anywhere in my line. Maybe his family fostered her?

Have you looked for her in the 1881, 1891 or 1901 census. If you could narrow down when she arrived in Canada you may be able to get more info.
