Cameron, Mary (1837-1914)

Mary Cameron was the widow of Thomas Cameron. She lived at 1913 Beach Avenue from 1901 to 1903.

She was born Mary Bridget Sullivan on October 15, 1837 (some sources say 1827, 1830 or 1835), probably in Bristol, England. Her parents were James and Mary Sullivan.

She married Thomas Cameron, who was born at Coldstream, Berwickshire, Scotland, in July 1821.

Thomas and Mary lived in San Jose, California, during the early 1850s, where some of their older children were born.

After the family arrived in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1858, Thomas worked as a blacksmith and carriage builder.

By 1863, Thomas was in business with John Edward Hunt, a blacksmith who had earlier lived in California.

It appears that Mary married John Herdman in Victoria on May 3, 1873. He was born in Belfast, Ireland, about 1827. His parents were Henry Herdman and Martha Mccullany.

John Herdman was a blacksmith and carriage maker who carried on a short-lived partnership with William Grimm.

William Grimm died in Victoria in 1912.

It is not clear what happened to John Herdman. By the time of the 1881 Canada census, Mary was described as a widow. She and her family appeared with Cameron as their last name, and there was no reference to John Herdman.

From 1889 to 1893, Mary and her family were living at 74 Kane Street. By 1898, Mary was at 14 Cadboro Bay Road in Victoria.

By 1901, Mary was living on Beach Avenue in Vancouver. She did not appear in the 1902 directory, but in 1903, she was at 1913 Beach Avenue, along with her daughter, Sophie Mary Cameron. Sophie died in Vancouver on June 6, 1903.

Mary did not appear in the Vancouver directories after 1903.

Mary died in San Francisco, California, on March 11, 1914. She was buried in Ross Bay Cemetery in Victoria, British Columbia.
