Booth Elliot

First appearance: 5.12: Enter Prince Charming
Booth Elliot was the son of John and Viola Elliot. As a minister's son, Booth had seen many diverse locations and learned to appreciate rag time music from New Orleans. Booth began to call on Sara Stanley, but was always under the watchful eye of Hetty King.

In order to evade Hetty's overprotectiveness, Sara defied her Aunt and went to an Acadian dance with Booth. After Sara admitted her deceptive ploy, Hetty reluctantly allowed Sara to see Booth. Booth left town when his father accepted a post in new Brunswick (5.13: The Minister's Wife).

John Elliot

First appearance: 5.12: Enter Prince Charming
John Elliot was a Presbyterian minister who replaced Reverend Fitzgerald around winter 1908-1909. His previous posts included such diverse locations as Borneo and New Orleans. Elliot was married to Viola and had one son, Booth.

When Viola's free spirited behavior became intolerable among the villagers, the church committee asked John Elliot to either discipline his wife or seek a post elsewhere. The committee changed its decision when they discovered Viola Elliot suffered from a back injury.

John accepted an offer to move to St. Johns New Brunswick so that Viola could be closer to a hospital (5.13: The Minister's Wife).

Viola Elliot

First appearance: 5.12: Enter Prince Charming
Viola was married to Reverend John Elliot and had one son, Booth. The Elliot family moved to Avonlea around winter 1908-1909 when John Elliot replaced Reverand Fitzgerald.

Viola's free spirited behavior and interest in eastern philosophy contrasted sharply with the more traditional beliefs of the town. She became good friends with Janet King and introduced her to an elixir.

When the two women became drunk from the elixir, they took Muriel Stacey's car for a joyride, wrecking it a short distance from the general store. Janet learned that Viola was taking the elixir as pain medication for a back injury she suffered during a typhoon several years before their incident.

Viola's behavior became intolerable among the villagers and the church committee asked John Elliot to either discipline his wife or seek a post elsewhere. The committee changed its decision when they discovered the circumstances concerning Viola Elliot's delicate condition and her reliance on pain medication.

John accepted an offer to move to St. Johns New Brunswick so that Viola could be closer to a hospital (5.13: The Minister's Wife).
