Bond, Lambert John Blair (1864-1915)

Lambert John Blair Bond was a lawyer who lived at 1945 Haro Street from 1907 to 1915.

He was born in Ireland on May 3, 1864. His father was John Bond (1838-1909), who was born in Gortin, Dungannon, County Tyrone, Ireland. John Bond’s father was Oliver Bond, who was from Pennyburn in Ireland, and of “The Collon” in Londonderry.

Lambert’s mother was Catherine Elizabeth Walker (about 1840-1911), who was born in Ireland. Catherine’s father was Rev. Robert Joseph Walker, originally of Hillmouth, County Tyrone, Ireland, and later of New York City. John Bond and Catherine Elizabeth Walker were married on September 24, 1861, in Upper Fahan, Don, Ireland.

Lambert received his education in Royal school, Dungannon, and Trinity College, Dublin, where he won two gold medals. He was called to the bar in London, England, in 1890.

He made one of his earliest trips to North America in 1893, when he sailed from Liverpool and Queenstown to New York.

About 1901, he moved to Canada. He first lived in Victoria, British Columbia, in a lodging house run by Miss Julie Devereux (1828-1920), who lived at 47 Vancouver Street. She operated the English Academy, which was a school for young women; she had also taught at Angela College in Victoria. Later she had a business as an employment agent.

By 1901, Lambert appeared in both the Victoria directory and the Vancouver directory as a barrister-at-law, although he was not sworn in as a British Columbia solicitor until January 1902.

He had an office at 39 1/2 Langley Street in Victoria. Allan Southey Dumbleton and William E. Fisher had offices in the same location in Victoria.

Allan Dumbleton was born in Wynberg, South Africa, on May 25, 1863; he died in Victoria on December 12, 1937.

William Edward Fisher was born in Metchosin, British Columbia, on February 8, 1871 or 1872. He later became a British Columbia Supreme Court Judge. He died in Vancouver on May 21, 1957.

In addition to his Victoria offices, Lambert also had an office at room 2 in the Inns of Court in Vancouver.

By 1904, Lambert had moved to Vancouver, where he was living at 1309 Davie Street. By 1905, he was living at 1225 Davie Street. He established a law partnership at 436 West Hastings Street with John Hales Sweet.

Mr. Sweet was the son of the Venerable Archdeacon Sweet in Victoria, British Columbia. He was born in Dalhousie, New Brunswick. He went to school at Harkins’ Academy at Newcastle, New Brunswick, and then to New Brunswick University. He went to Victoria about 1900, before moving to Vancouver to practice law with Lambert Bond.

In the fall of 1905, the Bond family, including Lambert’s father and mother, had moved to 1945 Haro Street.

In 1908, Lambert was the president of the Western Club, the successor to the St. George’s club, which was building its new club building at the southwest corner of Hastings and Hornby Streets.

In early February 1909, Lambert was seriously ill at his home on Haro Street.

Lambert’s father, John Bond, died in Vancouver on February 4, 1909. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

On February 5, 1909, the Vancouver Province reported that Lambert had recovered from his recent illness.

In March 1909, the Vancouver society column reported that Lambert was spending time at Hot Springs, Arkansas, and that the change had made a great benefit to his health.

Lambert’s mother, Catherine Elizabeth Bond, died in Vancouver on December 27, 1911. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

On June 13, 1912, in St. Margaret’s Church in Westminster, London, England, Lambert married Maud Abbott. [St. Margaret’s Church in Westminster, London, England, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Margaret’s,_Westminster], Maud was the youngest daughter of Keith Edward Abbott (1814-1873), the British consul general in Persia, and Agnes Anne Osborne-Gibbes (1828-1923). [It appears that Maud’s full name was Agnes Emma Maud Abbott, and that she was born in Odessa on October 23, 1869.]

In 1912, Lambert was involved in dealing with his mother’s estate. During the course of the administration of the estate, there was a dispute over the value of the property at 1945 Haro Street, along with some other property on Venables Street in east Vancouver. There was a commission of inquiry to determine the value of the property. In the end, the issues in Elizabeth’s estate were resolved.

In October 1912, Lambert and Maud arrived from England, along with Mr. F. Stevenson, and moved into 1945 Haro Street.

In early 1913, Maud went for a visit to Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island. She returned to Vancouver in April, where she announced that she would have her “at home” receiving days on the first and third Mondays in each month.

In July 1913, Lambert and Maud, along with Mr. F. Stevenson, went to Prince Rupert for a short summer vacation. Maud indicated that she was not the Mrs. Bond who was interested in the promotion of a domestic servants’ union, since she had constantly been receiving enquiries about the movement.

Lambert died on October 13, 1915. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver. Mr. F. Stevenson was the informant on the death certificate.

Lambert and Elizabeth did not have any children.

In March 1916, Maud moved from the house at 1945 Haro Street, and began staying at 1436 Harwood Street. William A. Lawson moved into 1945 Haro Street. Further information on Maud is not available at this time.

Lambert’s law partner, John Hales Sweet, was one of the many Canadian Expeditionary Forces members who died in 1917 at the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
