Ingle was born in 1878 in Puslinch Township, and was christened Bertha May Ingle. She died in Toronto in 1962.
A few published and online sources incorrectly report her birthplace as Nassagaweya, and/or her place of death as Guelph.
Several sources, notably the 1934 catalogue of the Perkins Bull Collection, give her name as Bertha Maylaw Ingle. She signed a small number of pictures using that name, or sometimes simply Maylaw, but why she did so is unknown.
