Bayley, Henry Cort (1868-1934)

Henry Cort Bayley was an advertising agent. He lived at 1020 Chilco Street in 1911.

He was born on April 13, 1868, probably in Bristol, England. He arrived in Canada about 1898.

By 1901, he was married to Mabel Henrietta Llewellyn. She was born on September 25, probably in 1875. Her father was John Llewellyn, who was apparently a surgeon in Caerphilly, Wales. Her mother was Henrietta Caroline Woodruff.

In 1901, Henry and Mabel were living in Westmount, Quebec. Henry was an advertising writer.

By 1911, the Bayleys were living in Vancouver. Henry was an advertising manager for financial agents.

From 1914 to 1916, the family lived in the Majestic Apartments at 1398 Georgia Street. From 1923 to 1926, they were living in Grace Court, at 1601 Comox Street.

By 1926, Mabel and her children had moved to 1935 Haro Street. It seems that Henry was not living with them. The 1927 directory shows Mrs. Mabel Bayley at 1935 Haro; from 1928 to 1932, the directory has “Margaret, widow of H.C. Bayley” at 1935 Haro.

When Mabel died on May 3, 1932, her death certificate said that she was married. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

After Mabel died, Henry moved to Toronto, Ontario, where he lived until about the beginning of 1934. He then moved to Edmonton, Alberta. He died in Edmonton on June 12, 1934. He was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby.

Henry and Mabel had the following children.

 

William Woodruff Bayley

William Woodruff Bayley was born in Westmount, Quebec on May 6, 1899 (or 1900). After leaving school, he began working at the Canadian Bank of Commerce branch at 5702 Victoria Drive in Vancouver.

He died at the bank branch on November 10, 1923. A coroner’s jury concluded that William had shot himself. He was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby.

 

Enid Mary Bayley

Enid Mary Bayley was born in Westmount, Quebec, on July 5, 1902. On May 4, 1926, in Vancouver, she married Edward (“Ted”) Irwin Bird, who was a lawyer. He was born on November 1, 1901, in Kenora (Rat Portage), Ontario. His father was Joseph Edward Bird (1868-1948), who was a lawyer; Ted’s mother was Caroline Mary Irwin (1869-1940).

It appears that Ted and Enid may have been divorced. Enid later married Richard Charles Messenger, who was born in Valley Field, Quebec. His father was William Messenger. Richard was the president of Crown Lumber Company Ltd. Richard died in Vancouver on July 19, 1971.

Enid died in Vancouver on February 10, 1983.

Ted Bird married Virginia Hampton. Ted died in Vancouver on August 10, 1955.

 

John Lawrence Bayley

John Lawrence Bayley was born in Lachine, Quebec, on April 20, 1904. He became a well-known swimmer. At one point, he was a clerk; later he became a supervisor for B.C. Hydro.

On October 17, 1928, in Vancouver, he married Mabel Emily White. She was born in Vancouver on December 11, 1903. Her father was William Walter White, who was a commission agent; her mother was Alice Emma Urch.

John died in North Vancouver on January 28, 1980.

Mabel died in North Vancouver on January 11, 1983.

John and Mabel’s children included the following:
