Boyes, Harold Baldwin (1871-1950)

Harold Baldwin Boyes was a real estate broker. He lived at 1800 Nelson Street from 1910 to 1912, and at 1822 Nelson Street from 1913 to 1914.

Harold was born in Slingsby, Malton district, Yorkshire on January 29, 1871. His father was Robert Lawson Boyes (1838-1898), who was the postmaster in Slingsby. His mother was Mary Jane Goodwill (1840-1907).

In early 1904, in Scarborough, Yorkshire, Harold married Nellie Dowson. She was born on September 22, 1877, in England. Her father was William Dowson (or Dawson); her mother was Mary Smith.

Harold and Nellie moved to Canada about 1904. They lived in Edmonton, Alberta, for a short period, and by 1910 they were living in Vancouver.

After arriving in Vancouver, Harold established a real estate business. The Boyes family lived at 1800 Nelson Street from 1910 to 1912, and at 1822 Nelson Street from 1913 to 1915. In 1915, they moved to 1756 Nelson Street, where they stayed until 1930. From 1931, they lived at 1643 Burnaby Street.

Harold stayed in the real estate business until he died in Vancouver on October 29, 1950. He was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Sometime after 1955, Nellie moved with her children to 1391 Nanton Avenue in Vancouver. Nellie died in Vancouver on April 25, 1966. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby.

Her Latin and French are almost equally fluent; but she only exhibits them at La Canadienne and the Classics Club.” (includes photograph of Winnifred Emmeline Boyes.)
