The vital records state that he died in 1893 - which means that there is a transcription error on the will itself which says he signed in 1894.

I am trying to find the marriage of William to Alice (Gallivan). I found the marriage of their daughter Emma Elizabeth Elworthy to Thomas Mathew Wyatt in Montreal, Sept. 24, 1894 which states her parents were, William Robert Elworthy (deceased) and Alice Gallivan from Newfoundland.
