Arthur: Early Life

In 1881, Arthur was living with his parents in Beddington, Surrey, where his father was a professor of mathematics.

In 1891, Arthur was in London, England.

 

Engagement to Christine Lewis

In 1899, the Philadelphia newspapers announced Arthur’s engagement to Christine George Lewis, who was a prominent member of Philadelphia society. Christine’s parents were Edmund Lewis (1834–1898) and Elizabeth Coleman Maule (1842–1923).

Arthur had met Christine in England while she and her mother were on a world tour. Christine’s engagement to Arthur was a surprise, since society rumours had incorrectly suggested that Christine was engaged to Sir Ranjitsinhji Vibhaji Jadeja [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranjitsinhji], an Indian prince and a famous cricket player.

By the summer of 1900, the Arthur’s engagement to Christine was over. Christine had decided to become a professional nurse.

According to the homestead grant register, the homestead application was cancelled. (As well, the Library and Archives Canada’s database of Land Grants of Western Canada, 1870-1930 does not have a land grant entry for Arthur.)

 

Marriage to Beatrice Jowett

Arthur married Beatrice Allee Jowett in Calgary, Alberta. According to one source, the marriage was in July 1907. (However, the marriage was somewhat earlier than that. Arthur’s and Beatrice’s daughter, Dorothy, was born about April 1907, and Beatrice died in May 1907.)

Beatrice Jowett: Family Background

It appears that Beatrice was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on January 16, 1884. Her parents were John William Jowett and his wife, Margaret. (According to the Manitoba birth registration, Margaret’s maiden name was Spink.)

John Jowett was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, England on March 4, 1851 (although some sources say 1853). (Beatrice’s middle name, Allee, was the name of John Jowett’s mother.)

By 1882, John was in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In December 1886, he joined the Department of Indian Affairs, and he worked as a clerk in western Canada for 33 years.

In 1903, he was transferred from Crooked Lakes to the Blood Reserve, which was near Arthur’s proposed homestead property.
