Who Was B.D. Farquharson?

I found this bookplate a couple of weeks ago and so far I've not been able to learn much about the owner.  A search did turn up another book on Toronto from the c.1920s that also contained this bookplate, but otherwise this person remains a mystery to me.

Similarly, there is no mark of the artist on the bookplate that I could discover either.  I do get the sense, however, that either the artist or Farquharson may have created this image based upon a real location in someone's house.  It does have a very English countryside feel about it.

If you know who this person was, please contact me at with any info.  With thanks in advance!
