Wilfrid Francis Brougham was a lawyer, musician, and sports enthusiast. He lived at 1967 Barclay Street in 1903 and 2067 Pendrell Street from 1904 to 1909. He was also at 2067 Pendrell Street from 1924 to 1928.

Wilfrid Francis Brougham was born on November 25, 1864, in Brougham, Westmoreland, England. His father, Wilfrid Brougham (1842-1904), was the son of William Brougham, the second Baron Brougham and Vaux (pronounced “broom and vawks”). Wilfrid Francis’s mother was Francesca Isabella Vignati (1863-1901) (sometimes called Frances Elizabeth).

Wilfrid and Francesca’s marriage was difficult. They eventually separated, and Wilfrid tried to obtain a divorce on the grounds of adultery; the court eventually dismissed the application because of Wilfrid’s unreasonable delay in starting and in proceeding with the case. Wilfrid’s family also seems to have had some financial challenges (Wilfred became bankrupt; later generations of the family also ran into difficulty, partly from the costs of running large and expensive properties, and in one case from gambling.)

Wilfrid Francis Brougham attended Charterhouse School in Godalming, Surrey in England [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charterhouse_School]. Then he went to Pembroke College at Cambridge University, where he graduated in 1888 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.

On November 27, 1889, Wilfrid Francis married Matilda Caroline Macgregor. She was born about 1853 in St. Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands. Her father was Alexander Donald Macgregor, a retired banker, who lived at Melrose, Guernsey, Channel Islands. In 1891, Wilfrid Francis and Matilda were living in Guernsey, along with Wilfrid Brougham. The Brougham-Macgregor marriage did not last; by 1897, Wilfrid Francis was remarried. Matilda died on February 26, 1928.

In the early 1890s, Wilfrid Francis was a solicitor in London, England, in partnership with Edward Francis Day and Charles Russell. Their offices were at 37 Norfolk-street Strand. On December 16, 1896, Wilfrid left the partnership, which then carried on as Day Russell and Co.

Wilfrid Francis Brougham’s second marriage occurred in 1897, when he married Frances Elizabeth Leeds Graham. Frances was born in Hamilton, Ontario on November 9, 1868. Her father was Major Charles Tempest Graham (dates: 1838-1911); her mother was Frances Taverner. (1842-1931). Major Graham was born in England, and fought in the United States Civil War.

Frances was a talented singer. She sang at the Paris Opera House and at Covent Garden in London. She was once in a performance of the opera “Hansel and Gretel” for Queen Victoria. Later, she went to North America and sang with the Chicago Opera Company in New York, Chicago and San Francisco.

By 1897, Wilfrid had arrived in Nelson, British Columbia. He hired H.J. Williams to build a house on Stanley Street in downtown Nelson.

In December 1897, Frances appeared in a musical recital in Victoria, British Columbia; Wilfrid accompanied her on the piano.

Wilfrid began to work in a law firm that may have included William Alexander Macdonald, Q.C. (1860-1946) [http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/macdonald_wa.shtml]. [See 1875 Robson Street: 1909; 1816 Haro Street: 1910-1918.]

On February 2, 1898, Wilfrid was admitted to the British Columbia bar as a solicitor. Towards the end of February 1898, he became a partner in a Nelson law firm, along with Reginald Murray Macdonald (1866-1955), who was a barrister originally from Ontario.

While Wilfrid and Frances were living in Nelson, their daughter, Daphne Veronica Brougham, was born on August 8, 1898.

Throughout 1898 and 1899, Wilfrid was a director in several musical productions, including Maritana, The Chimes of Normandy, HMS Pinafore, and The Mikado, and the finale of Beethoven’s Mount of Olives. In May 1899, the Nelson Musical Society presented him with an ivory and ebony baton “in recognition of his untiring efforts to advance the interests of the society.”

On June 30 1899, Wilfrid and Reginald Macdonald dissolved their partnership. That fall, on November 7, 1899, Frances Brougham gave a farewell concert at the Nelson Opera House, which had just been finished earlier that year.

[Note: the link above link says that a fire destroyed the opera house in 1922. The actual date of the destruction was May 1935: “Bad Fire at Nelson, BC,” Lewiston Morning Tribune – Apr 18, 1935, page 7, http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=PXlfAAAAIBAJ&sjid=sy8MAAAAIBAJ&dq=nelson%20opera%20house%20fire&pg=4486%2C1148358%5D

By January 1900, Wilfrid and Frances had moved to San Francisco. The operators of the Tivoli Theater in San Francisco had hired Frances to sing in the theatre. She appeared as “Frances Graham” or “Frances Tempest Graham”; things looked very promising for Frances’s career. She sang in a variety of musical events, mostly to favourable reviews.

For unknown reasons, Frances seems to have stopped her singing career. About 1902, Wilfrid and Frances moved to Vancouver. Wilfrid resumed his role as a lawyer. The family became quite prominent in Vancouver society, and Frances appeared from time to time in local music productions.

In 1903, the Broughams were living at 1967 Barclay Street, presumably waiting for the completion of their new house at 2067 Pendrell Street. From 1904 to 1910, they lived at the Pendrell Street house; then they lived in a series of houses in Shaughnessy Heights and elsewhere on the west side of Vancouver. In 1921, they were staying at the Hotel Vancouver Annex for the winter months. From 1924 to 1928, they were back at 2067 Pendrell Street, along with their daughter Daphne, who was married to Joscelyn Arthur Hobday in 1924.

Wilfrid Francis’s legal career continued throughout the 1920s and 1930s. He died in Vancouver on January 3, 1938.

In late 1938, Frances began to teach singing again. She died in Vancouver on October 26, 1942. Besides Daphne, Frances had a brother and sister living in California when she died.

Daphne Veronica Brougham

Daphne Veronica Brougham was born in Nelson, British Columbia, on August 8, 1898. She was interested in sports and dramatic art, and she was a talented singer.

On October 21, 1924, in Vancouver, Daphne married Joscelyn (John) Arthur Hobday. He was born born in Muree, India (now Pakistan) on September 1, 1898. His father was Edmund Arthur Ponsonby Hobday (1859-1931); his mother was Nora Pottinger (1867-1911). John had served with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. John’s marriage to Daphne was dissolved on September 8, 1944, in Vancouver.

John then married Dorothy Gardner Williams. She was born in Kimberly, South Africa on April 8, 1890. Her father was Gardner Frederick Williams (1842-1922); her mother was Frances (Fannie) Martin Locke (1848-1911). Dorothy’s first marriage, to Monroe Eyre Pinckard, ended in divorce in 1928. Her second marriage was to John Noel Myles Hodgins. Her third marriage, to John Hobday, was on December 15, 1944. John and Dorothy had no children. John died in Saanich, British Columbia, on October 19, 1971.

Daphne later married Sedley Campbell (Bimbo) Sweeny. (He had been one of the ushers at Daphne’s wedding to John Hobday.) Bimbo was born on October 16, 1888, in Vancouver, and became an accomplished rugby player and rower. He was earlier married to Violet Pooley in 1915; Violet died in West Vancouver on March 19, 1965. Bimbo died in West Vancouver on February 12, 1966. Daphne died on November 23, 1986, in West Vancouver, British Columbia.
