He was born on May 31, 1864, in Walton on the Hill, Surrey, England. His father was Samuel Bostock (about 1809-1869), who was a successful investor. Hewitt’s mother was Marian Iliff (born 1830); after Samuel Bostock’s death in 1869, Marian married Rev. John Cave-Brown (1818-1898). Marian died on June 6, 1926.

He first came to Canada in 1886. In 1888, he visited the Thompson valley in British Columbia, where he bought a ranch called “Duck’s,” which was named after Jacob Duck. Later the area became known as Monte Creek.

On June 12, 1890, in Kingston district, Surrey, England, he married Lizzie Jean McCombie Cowie. She was born on April 4, 1868, in Marylebone, Middlesex, England. Her father was Hugh Cowie, Q.C., of Ithandale, Wimbledon, and who was Chancellor of Durham University. Lizzie’s mother was Septima Warlters. Hewitt and Lizzie came briefly to Canada in 1890 and 1891. In 1893, they moved to Victoria, British Columbia, where Hewitt hired architect William Ridgway Wilson (1862-1957) to build a Queen Anne style house at 1322 Rockland Avenue. (The house was called Schuhuum or Shuhuum: Victoria Heritage Foundation; Heritage Register; Rockland; 1322 Rockland Avenue; http://www.victoriaheritagefoundation.ca/HReg/Rockland/Rockland1322.html.)

In April 1894, Hewitt and other associates founded the Province newspaper in Victoria. At first, the paper ran once a week. By 1898, the paper had moved to Vancouver and had started to publish daily. Walter Cameron Nichol became the sole owner of the paper until 1923, when he sold it to the Southam family. Hewitt invested widely in other businesses, including lumbering and mining companies and another newspaper, and he established a large presence at the Monte Creek ranch.

 

In 1896, Hewitt ran successfully for the federal parliament in the Yale-Cariboo constituency.

He did not run for Parliament in 1900. In 1904, he was appointed to the Senate, succeeding Senator James Reid (1839-1904).

The ranch stayed in the hands of the Bostock family for many years.

Deserted buildings on the Bostock ranch at Monte Lake, between Kamloops and Falkland on the CPR line to the Okanagan, are a link with the pioneer past. The buildings, among the oldest in the district, were fashioned from hand-hewn shakes and plans and expertly cut logs. Bruce Moss photo. Vancouver Sun, December 9, 1954, page 5.

Hewitt Bostock house (“Schuhuum”) at 1322 Rockland, Victoria, British Columbia

1322 Rockland, Schuhuum 1894, http://www.rockland.bc.ca/walking.html. “W. Ridgway Wilson continued the Tudor Revival style with this Queen Anne house that he designed for Hewitt Bostock, who started The Province newspaper. Schuhuum was an Indian word for “windy spot”. James D. Prentice, MPP, lived here in 1908. Maclure provided drawings for renovations about 1900 and in 1915, Maclure designed a coach porch for client William Agnew.  In 1950, Kathleen Agnew donated the property to the Anglican Church to be used for the elderly (the former Caroline Macklem home).

1322 Rockland Avenue, Schuhuum, http://www.victoriaheritagefoundation.ca/HReg/Rockland/Rockland1322.html: “Other Occupants: James Douglas Prentice (1861-1911) bought the house in 1901, and commissioned Samuel Maclure to undertake numerous renovations. Born in Lanarkshire, Scotland, James was educated in Edinburgh and came to Canada c.1888. He was a bank clerk and then a rancher in Lillooet, BC. He was elected MLA for Lillooet in 1898 and 1900. He came to Victoria when he became Provincial Secretary in the Dunsmuir administration in 1900, then became Minister of Finance in 1901. He married Mabel Clare Galpin in Victoria in 1897, and they lived at Schuhuum until 1911.

William Agnew (1848-1922) bought this property in 1912. William was a wholesale silk importer born in Co. Down, Ireland. He came to Canada in 1856 and lived in Ontario, where he met and married Emma Johnson Waterous (1849-1917). The Agnews retired from Montreal to Victoria in 1912. Their only son Major Augustus Waterous Agnew was killed in France during WWI.

Daughter Kathleen Martha Clara Agnew (1880-1967) remained in the house. Born in Montreal and educated in Germany and France, she was fluent in both languages. Kathleen was a noted philanthropist, and was named Victoria’s Good Citizen in 1957. She was a patron of the arts, and supported the YWCA, YMCA, Girl Guides and Boy Scouts. In her will she left her entire library to the University of Victoria, and many paintings to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (1040 Moss St, Rockland).

Kathleen donated this house to the Anglican Church as the Caroline Macklem home for aged women in 1950. It was forced to close its doors due to Provincial funding cuts in 1999. Controversy ensued when the so-called Baron George von Bothmer zu Schwegerhoff, also known as George C. Davis, signed a 99-year lease with the Anglican Church Women’s Society for $1 a year in 2000. An out-of-court settlement was reached, the Baron left Canada and the house was sold in 2004.

Bruce William Fallis, September 24, 1946-July 20, 2009, http://passages.winnipegfreepress.com/passage-details/id-153062/name-Bruce_Fallis/: “A kind, brave, intelligent man, Bruce Fallis, aged 62, passed away July 20 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital (Salmon Arm, BC). With a lifelong fascination and an extensive knowledge of the natural environment, he worked for many years as a fisheries biologist. Bruce was an excellent poet, an avid outdoorsman, and an award-winning beekeeper. In the last few years of his life, he developed Parkinson’s Disease and valiantly struggled with this adversity. Thoughtful, generous, and loving as a husband and father, he will be greatly missed by his wife of 34 years, Wendy (nee Dickson); his children, Glenn (Amber) and Leandra; brothers Alex (Wanda), and Hugh (Marilyn); Uncle Allan (Hazel); and many cousins, nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father, Dr. A. Murray Fallis and mother, Ada Ruth Fallis (nee Bostock). We will remember him fondly for his humility and enduring positive attitude, his patient teachings, gentle strength and gracious nature, and his playful, clever sense of humour. Donations in memory of Bruce can be made to the Parkinson’s Society of Canada (www.parkinson.ca). As published in the Winnipeg Free Press on August 01, 2009.
