Cannon, Hubert Cecil Harold (1870-1934)

Hubert Cecil Harold Cannon was a salmon canner and insurance broker. He lived at 1050 Chilco Street from about 1902 to 1908.

Hubert was born on March 9, 1870, in Southport, north of Liverpool, in Lancashire, England. His father was Reverend James Deardon Cannon (1831-1904); his mother was Katherine Dakeyne (1843-1902).

Hubert went to Merchant Taylors’ school, Repton School, and Peterhouse College at Cambridge, England. For some time, he was a Captain in the Loyal Lancashire Regiment.

Hubert arrived in Canada in 1898, and first appeared in the Vancouver directory for 1900-1901; he was the vice-president of United Canneries of British Columbia. He was living at “Rhodesia Lodge,” 1500 Robson Street, which was on the southwest corner of Robson Street and Nicola Street.

About 1900, Hubert also became a partner with Leslie Havelock Wright, an insurance broker who lived at 1865 Barclay Street from 1902 to 1910, and Frank Burnett, Junior, who lived at 1877 Comox Street from 1911 to 1913.

On June 2, 1900, in Vancouver, Hubert married Gertrude Angela Moncrieff.

Gertrude was born on October 21, 1879, in Newmarket, Ontario. Her father was Frances Edward Moncrieff (1857-1884). Her mother was Jean Adamson (1861-1936).

The Vancouver directories show that Hubert continued to live at the corner of Robson Street and Nicola Street in 1901 and 1902.

In 1901, Hubert advertised in the Vancouver Province that he had lost the plans for a house: “Lost: Between Arcade and Post Office, or on Robson street car, large envelope addressed Hubert C.H. Cannon, containing plans of a house. Any one returning same to Wright, Cannon & Burnett, Hadden block, Granville St. (under Trorey’s) will be rewarded.” [Vancouver Province, December 23, 1901, page 3.]

A note on historical records for the Cannon house at Chilco Street and Comox Street

Chilco Street and Comox Street - Detail from Goad's Atlas of the city of Vancouver - 1912 - Vol 1 - Plate 8 - Barclay Street to English Bay and Cardero Street to Stanley Park

Chilco Street and Comox Street – Detail from Goad’s Atlas of the city of Vancouver – 1912 – Vol 1 – Plate 8 – Barclay Street to English Bay and Cardero Street to Stanley Park

It appears that the lost plans were for Hubert’s new house at the corner of Chilco Street and Comox Street. However, there is an inconsistency in some of the historical information. Most likely the house was at 1050 Chilco Street.

1050 Chilco Street – Detail from [Houses on the north side of the 1900 Block of Pendrell Street] – AM54-S4-2 – CVA 371-723

Another possibility is that Hubert originally started to plan for a house on lot 14, at 1059 Chilco Street, but later changed to the house on lot 13, at 1050 Chilco Street.

The following entry is from Heritage Vancouver Society’s database of building permits: http://permits.heritagevancouver.org/ [searched February 8, 2015]:

Municipality: Vancouver
Permit:
Owner: Carmon, H. C. H.
Architect: Dalton, W. T.
Builder: Horrobin, T.
Legal Address: DL: 185 Block: 70 Sub: Resub: Lot: 14
Date (Y-M-D): 1902-04-07
Street Number:
Street Name: Comox Street & Chilco Street
Value: $4,500.00
Remarks: Frame dwelling s.f.
Reference ID: VN-8170-8171-10

The address for lot 14 is 1059 Chilco Street. However, the lot number for 1050 Chilco Street is actually lot 13.

Furthermore, according to the Vancouver directories from 1904 to 1908, as well as the 1908 Elite Directory of Vancouver, Hubert was living at 1050 Chilco.

Finally, there is this advertisement for another property at the corner of Comox Street and Chilco Street, which later became 2005 Comox Street:

Choice West End Corner: Vancouver Province, September 15, 1902, page 6. “$1250 buys N.W. corner Comox and Chilco Streets, diagonally across Comox from Mr. Cannon’s fine new residence. The lot is high and commands fine fiew of English Bay. It is one of the choice remaining corners in the west End, and is worth $1500. . . .C.S. Douglas & Co.; Land, Mining, Loan and Insurance Agents; 515 Hastings Street W.”

The Cannon family after the move to the Chilco Street house

In 1905, Gertrude went on a sea trip to the Orient: “Mrs. H.C. H. Cannon was a passenger on the Empress of China, which sailed on Monday. She will make a short visit to the Orient and is expected home on the return trip or the Empress of China.” [Social and Personal, Vancouver Province, September 9, 1905.]

In 1909, Hubert moved to 1522 Comox Street. From 1910 onward, he lived in a series of apartments, mostly in the West End and in downtown Vancouver.

In 1910, he was at Earlscourt, which was at 1103 Georgia Street. Thomas Dunn, who was a hardware merchant, built the house about 1889 on the north-west corner of the Georgia and Thurlow St. [Vancouver Museum, H985.1.1 – Large knight stained glass windowpane 1889; http://openmov.museumofvancouver.ca/node/73023.]

About 1910, Hubert became the president of Beach House Ltd., which operated on English Bay until about 1919.

In 1911 and 1912 , Hubert was at number 112, Blenheim Court, 1209 Jervis Street.

In December 1915, Hubert signed his attestation papers with the Canadian Expeditionary Force. He gave his address as Blenheim Court, at the corner of Jervis and Davie Street. He said that his birth date was May 9, 1871, which was apparently a year later than his actual birth.

After the war, Hubert and Gertrude stayed at Blenheim Court until about 1930. From 1930 to 1933, Hubert lived at the Clifton Rooms, which were at 1125 Granville Street.

In 1932, Gertrude moved to Englesea Lodge at 2046 Beach Avenue.

Hubert died in Vancouver on June 9, 1934, at Shaughessy Military Hospital in Vancouver. [The death certificate gave his normal residence as 3410 Point Grey Road. This was the home of Richard Henry Sheridan (about 1894-1949), who was the proprietor of Sheridan Language Schools.] Hubert was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

On January 15, 1937, in Vancouver, Gertrude married Robert George Parkhurst, who was the Vancouver manager of a steamship company called the Royal Mail Lines. He was born in London, England on December 24, 1880. His parents were Robert John Parkhurst and Mary Ann Pugh.

Robert died in Vancouver on September 2, 1939. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Gertrude died in Vancouver on June 10, 1977.

In August 1916, Cecil sailed to England with the Canadian military forces. In September 1916, Gertrude registered Cecil’s birth, giving his correct date of birth as May 21, 1901.

By January 1917, Cecil was struck off strength from the military because he was a minor, and he was discharged from service.
