Binnington, Constance Sarah (1875-1960)

Constance Sarah Binnington was a stenographer in a real estate company, and later a bank employee. She lived at 1102 Denman Street in 1915. Like most all of her siblings, she never married.

Constance was born on July 10, 1875, in Manor House, Marham, Norfolk, England. Her father was Richard Binnington (1845-1908). Richard’s father was William Binnington.

Richard Binnington married Sarah Winearls in Marham, Norfolk, on October 26, 1871. Sarah was born in December 1852 in Marham; her father was Robert Collison Winearls, who was a farmer in Marham.

The Binnington family came to Canada about 1885. They lived in Ontario for a time, and then moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, and later came to Vancouver, although the information for the family is not always easy to follow.

By 1907, the Vancouver directories showed Richard Binnington at 1643 Haro Street in Vancouver; he was a clerk for the Canadian Pacific Railway. The 1907 Winnipeg directory, however, also indicates that Richard was at 1 St. Mary’s Place in Winnipeg, along with three other Binningtons at the same address: Henry, “H,” and “M” Binnington.

In 1908, the Vancouver directory listed Richard at 1110 Robson Street, along with his daughter, Edith, who was working as a stenographer with the real estate company of Mahon, McFarland and Mahon.

Richard Binnington died in Vancouver on July 5, 1908. In April 1909, Sarah went to England, stopping in Winnipeg on the way. While Sarah was away, the Binnington daughters stayed with the family of Mrs. Biggs at 1309 Davie Street.

By 1911, several Binnington family members were living at 128 Clarke Street in Winnipeg. They appeared in both the Winnipeg directories; the 1911 Canada census also showed them in Winnipeg.

However, according to the 1911 census and the Vancouver directories, Constance, her sister Edith, and her brother Lancelot were living in No. 11, 950 Bidwell Street (the Cambridge Apartments). It appears that some of the family may have moved back and forth from Winnipeg to Vancouver, or the listings may just be duplicates.

Sarah Binnington, Richard’s widow, died in Winnipeg on December 25, 1917.

It appears that Constance went to live in Winnipeg, perhaps before her mother died. Constance was still living in Winnipeg, along with other members of her family, until about 1948. By 1949, she was back in Vancouver, living with her brother Henry and her sisters Edith and Mabel at 2331 West 47th Avenue.

Constance was still living at the house on 47th Avenue when she died on January 5, 1960. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.
