Herbert Mahlon Burwell was a surveyor. He lived at 913 Denman Street from 1900 to 1912, and at 1821 Barclay Street from 1913 to 1925.

He was born on October 23, 1862, in Port Talbot, Ontario. His father was Hannibal Burwell; his mother was Laura Williams.

The Burwell family had been in North America since the late 1700s. Herbert’s grandfather, Mahlon Burwell (1783-1846), had surveyed much of Western Ontario in the early 1800s; he later became a registrar of land titles in Middlesex district and was a legislative assembly representative in the 1830s. Port Burwell in Ontario is named after him. Mahlon Burwell’s brother was Adam Hood Burwell (about 1790-1849), who was a clergyman in Ontario in the 1830s and 1840s.

Herbert Mahlon Burwell was educated at Helmuth College in London, Ontario, from 1875 to 1881. For two years he worked for Tracy and Durand, who were engineers and surveyors. He worked on township surveys in the Northwest Territories. Thomas Henry Tracy (1848-1925) worked for a time as the City Engineer in Vancouver.

In 1884 and 1885, he was in charge of a federal government meteorological station at Cape Chidley, at the northern tip of the Labrador Peninsula, to determine whether it was possible to ship goods from Canada to Europe through the Hudson Strait. Several places in the area were named after him, including Port Burwell, and possibly Burwell Bay and Burwell Island.

In 1886, Herbert received a commission as a Dominion Land Surveyor and as an Ontario Land Surveyor. Later, he worked as a surveyor for the Canadian Pacific Railway west of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

By 1889, he was living in Vancouver and was working with the surveying and engineering firm of Garden, Herman and Burwell. He was living at 423 Richards Street. Later he became a partner in the firm, which was working on Vancouver’s water supply project.

James Ford Garden (1847-1914) was an engineer and politician. He was the mayor of Vancouver from 1898 to 1900.

Ernest Bolton Hermon (1863-1937) was a surveyor, originally from Ontario.

“Garden, Hermon & Burwell: in civil engineering the firm of Messrs. Garden, Hermon & Burwell leads. It was founded in 1886, and is composed of Messrs. J.F. Garden, E.B. Hermon and H.M. Burwell. They are prepared to do anything that is in any way connected with civil engineering. Are Dominion and Provincial surveyors. Their office is at 336 Cambie street.” [Vancouver World, Souvenir Edition, June 1896, page 32.]

Garden, Hermon and Burwell surveyed building lots in the West End of Vancouver, and re-surveyed the Old Granville and Old Hastings townsites.

On September 23, 1891, in Vancouver, Herbert married Maud Marion Black. She was born on June 18, 1866 in New Westminster, British Columbia. Her father was Arthur Walter Shaw Black (about 1833-1871). Doctor Black was killed when his horse threw him while he was riding on the road between New Westminster in Vancouver.

Maude’s mother was Elizabeth Kathleen Kemp (1844-1912).

By 1900, Herbert and Maud were living at 913 Denman Street. In 1913 they moved to 1821 Barclay Street. Herbert retired as a surveyor about 1915.

Herbert died in Vancouver on July 30, 1925. He was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Mount Burwell, on the east side of Lynn Creek and north of North Vancouver was named after Herbert in 1927, along with Burwell Creek and Burwell Lake.

Maud died in Vancouver on May 20, 1962. She was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Burnaby.

It appears that Herbert and Maud did not have any children.

In Woman’s Realm, Vancouver Province, March 17, 1900, page 10: “The daffodil tea given by Mrs. Burwell, of Denman street, was one of the smartest functions of the week. The table was very artistically arranged. A handsome centrepiece of white mousselaine de soie over pea green was very effective and set off the violets and daffodils very nicely. Mrs. Bowell and Mrs. Munro poured tea and the Misses Cambie and Lawson and Miss Wood received with Mrs. Burwell. Mrs. H.H. Watson and Mrs. E.R. Black assisted materially to the success of the tea. The day was a perfect one and the toilettes of the ladies savored very much of spring. The merry bus of feminine voices and their beaming countenances made the atmosphere as bright and sparkling indoors as the sunshine did out of doors. Vocal selections were rendered by Mrs. Buntzen, Mrs. Qigley [sic: Quigley] and Mrs. McCredy.”
