William A. Banks lived at 786 Gilford Street in 1918.

It appears that he was William Arthur Banks, who was a fruit salesman and the operator of a  fruit- and vegetable-drying business in Chilliwack, British Columbia.

 

Family Background

William Arthur Banks was born on September 10, 1875, at Hemingborough, Yorkshire, England. His parents were William Banks (1841–1938) and Anne Dorothy Summerson (1845–1915).

 

Marriage to Lily Quarmby

On April 12, 1900, in Matlock Bank, Derbyshire, William married Eliza Ann Quarmby ( who was often called “Lily”). She was born in May 1876, in Milnsbridge, Yorkshire, England. Her parents were John and Emma Quarmby.

To Canada

William and Lily travelled to Canada about 1905.

In 1908, William was hiring a manager for the farmers’ exchange in Salmon Arm.

Vancouver Daily World, February 5, 1908, page 17, column 1.

 

In 1909, he was advertising cabbage, celery and other vegetables for sale from the Babthorpe Fruit Farm at Salmon Arm. (Babthorpe was also the name of the Banks family property in England.)

In 1910, William was one of several apple producers who were exhibiting their products in Vancouver.

Vancouver Province, October 29, 1910, page 13, column 4 (first portion of article).

 

At the time of the 1911 Canada census, William was still a farmer in Salmon Arm.

Also in 1911, he was a member of the Salmon Arm board of school trustees.

According to a short newspaper article, William was still living in Salmon Arm in 1913. He was visiting Needles, which was then a a fruit-distributing centre on Lower Arrow Lake. (When the BC Hydro project raised the height of the Arrow Lakes in 1967, the waters covered the former townsite.)

To Vancouver

It appears that the Banks family moved to Vancouver about 1913 or 1914.

In 1914, W. A. Banks was living at 568 Seymour Street.

In 1915, William A. Banks was at 1636 Davie Street. He was a real estate agent for Mercantile Mortgage Company Ltd., which had its office at 201 – 318 Homer Street.

In 1916 and 1917, William A. Banks was at 10 – 960 Bidwell Street. In 1916, he was a salesman.

 

Chilliwack Evaporator and Packing Company

In 1916, William and a group of investors bought a cannery at Chilliwack, British Columbia. The business had been successful at times, but it had gone into liquidation.

The Chilliwack Evaporator and Packing Company took over the business, and William became the manager.

The company sometimes had difficulties getting enough fruit and vegetables to run the cannery, and the business shut down for a time.

 

Divorce

William’s and Lily’s marriage ended about the same time as the cannery business was closing.

In 1918, Lily sued to get half of William’s proceeds from the sale of the company. The matter was resolved when William agreed to pay Lily $30,000 and to allow her to have custody of their three children.

 

Vancouver Daily World, September 12, 1918, page 7, column 2.

 

 

Lily: Later Life

Lily later continued to live in British Columbia for much of the time.

She did not re-marry.

She died in Vancouver on December 29, 1964.

 

Vancouver Sun, December 30, 1964, page 26, column 2.

 

 

William: Later Life

After 1918, William lived in California.

In 1918, William sailed to Hawaii, along with a Scottish-born woman named Margarett who was described as William’s wife.

The 1920 directory for San Jose, California described William as an evaporator builder.

At the time of the 1920 United States census, William was living in San Jose, California. His occupation was manufacturing evaporators. The census record said that he was married to Margaret, who was born in Scotland about 1890. (It appears that this is the same person who travelled to Hawaii with William in 1918.)

 

Marriage to Blenda Anderson

On February 2, 1925, in Orange County, California, William married Blenda Evangaline Anderson. She was born in Lindsborg, Kansas on February 8, 1893. Her parents were Samuel Anderson and Hilda Sandquist. The marriage certificate said that William was divorced, and that he had been married twice before.

It appears that William and Blenda did not live together long, though they may not have gone through a divorce process. In 1940, Blenda was living with her parents in Los Angeles. The 1940 United States census described her as married.

On September 21, 1944, in Los Angeles, Blenda married George Robert Katzman, who was a lawyer. The marriage certificate described Blenda as a widow, suggesting that William Banks had died before the date of the marriage.
