Alfred John Buttimer was a cannery manager who lived at 1900 Robson Street in 1905.

He was sometimes called A. J. Buttimer, Fred Buttimer, or Frederick J. Buttimer.

 

Family Background

Alfred John Buttimer was born on December 4, 1867, in Bathurst, New Brunswick. His parents were James Buttimer and Mary A. Miller.

 

To Vancouver

Alfred moved to Vancouver about 1890, and he soon started working in the fishing and canning industry.

Around the same time, his father was investing in Vancouver real estate.

 

Vancouver Daily World, February 11, 1890, page 4, column 2.

 

Alfred established the Brunswick Cannery Company, along with George Warren Dawson (his brother-in-law), and George Ingram Wilson.

 

Margaret Cunningham (née Rath)

On September 27, 1904, in San Francisco, California, Alfred married Margaret Lauderdale Cunningham.

 

Vancouver Province, September 24, 1904, page 1, column 5.

 

Margaret was born on September 20, 1877, in Smith’s Falls, Ontario. Her parents were John Rath and Maria Charlotte Dunham.

Maria Dunham’s first marriage was in 1864, to Donald William Urquhart, who died in Kingston, Ontario, in 1872. Maria’s second marriage was to John Rath in 1874. It appears that John and Maria later lived separately, and that John died in Smith’s Falls in 1922. Maria resumed using Urquhart as her surname, and her children often used Urquhart as their surname as well.

Margaret’s Earlier Marriage: Philip Cunningham

On February 10, 1898, in San Francisco, California, Margaret L. Urquhart earlier married Philip James Cunningham, who was a lawyer. He was born in California about 1856. His parents were James Cunningham (1827–1880) and Ann Hennessy (or Maguire) (1828-1892).

 

San Francisco Call (San Francisco, California), February 22, 1898, page 15, column 6.

 

In May 1903, Margaret sued Philip for divorce on the ground of cruelty. In June 1903, the California court granted the interlocutory divorce decree.

 

San Francisco Examiner, June 11, 1903, page 4, column 6.

 

Philip later worked for a time as a lawyer, but by 1910 he was living in an institution. He died on March 13, 1933.
