Walter Henry Carnsew was an accountant and real estate broker. He lived at 1872 Georgia Street in 1910 and 1911.

He was born on October 27 [some sources say October 29], 1862, in Flexbury, Poughill, Cornwall, England. His father was Rev. Thomas Stone Carnsew (1820-1891).

Walter’s mother was Frances Hallett Honywood (about 1836-1890).

Walter arrived in North America about 1883. He apparently spent some time in Victoria and New Westminster, before moving to Washington State.

Walter was living in Chehalis, Washington State in the late 1880s and early 1890s. In 1890, Lewis E. Palmer sued Walter for damages for alienating the affections of Mr. Palmer’s wife.

The court awarded Mr. Palmer $250 in damages:

About the same time, Walter was injured in a mill accident.

Walter married Lucy Hornby, possibly in 1893, perhaps in Washington State or in British Columbia. Lucy was born about 1869. Her father was Robert Montague Hornby (1835-1900); her mother was Lucy Turner (about 1846-1918). Lucy Hornby was christened on April 14, 1869, in Bayston Hill, Shropshire, England.

Walter and Lucy came to Vancouver about 1893. They lived in a series of houses in the West End of Vancouver.

By the end of 1893, Walter and Lucy were living at 1325 Robson Street in Vancouver. Their oldest son, Charles, was born in Vancouver on December 25, 1893.

Walter first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1895; he was living at 1016 Nelson Street.

W H Carnsew - Williams’ Official BC Directory - 1895 - page 541

W H Carnsew – Williams’ Official BC Directory – 1895 – page 541

When Walter and Lucy’s second son, Jack, was born in Vancouver on November 21, 1895, Walter gave his address as 1606 Robson Street.

In 1897, Walter was working with Robert Duff Kinmond, and was living at 1606 Robson Street.

R D Kinmond and Walter H Carnsew - Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory - 189 - page 641

R D Kinmond and Walter H Carnsew – Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory – 189 – page 641

It appears that Walter and Lucy were not living in Vancouver for some of the time between 1898 and 1904; in any case, Walter’s name did not appear in the Vancouver directories during that period. In the 1901 Canada census, the family was in Langley Municipality; Walter said that his occupation was farming.

By 1905, Walter was living at 856 Cardero Street in Vancouver. He was working as a bookkeeper with Charles E. Hope and Walter E. Graveley’s real estate firm.

In 1909, he was living at 754 Nicola Street. He was the manager of the real estate department of the British American Trust Company Limited.

In 1910 and 1911, he was living at 1872 Georgia Street. In 1911, he was operating his own business at 333 Cambie Street:

W H Carnsew and Company - Henderson’s Greater Vancouver Directory - 1911 - page 549

W H Carnsew and Company – Henderson’s Greater Vancouver Directory – 1911 – page 549

After 1911, Walter continued to move frequently, while continuing to work as an accountant with a series of firms, usually in the real estate business.

In 1912, he was at 1448 Comox Street.

In September 1912, Walter published a series of notices in the Victoria Daily Colonist, in which he announced that he intended to apply for a licence to prospect for coal and petroleum in parts of Vancouver Island.

From 1913 to 1918, Walter was at 1112 Cardero Street. The directory said that he was on active service in the war in 1917. He did enlist with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War in 1916 and 1918. However, in 1916, he gave his birth year as 1872, which was ten years later than his actual birth year. In 1918, he said that he was born in 1868, which was closer to his real birth year, but still six years younger than his actual age. He did serve briefly for two periods. He was discharged in 1917 because he was medically unfit. His second period of service ended when he was demobilized at the end of the war.

After the war, he continued to move frequently. This is not an exhaustive list.

1919 1772 Comox Street
1920 to 1923 1665 Haro Street
1924 1091 Broughton Street
1925 1033 Cardero Street
1930 Number 17 – 1147 Nelson Street
1931 Number 4 – 934 Nicola Street
1932 1804 McNicol Avenue

 

Walter’s wife, Lucy, died in Vancouver on May 8, 1933. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Walter continued to carry on his accounting business through the 1940s. He died in Vancouver on November 13, 1949, when he was struck by a car while crossing the street on a rainy evening. He was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby.

 

Walter and Lucy had the following children.

Charles Noel Thomas Carnsew was born in Vancouver on December 25, 1893.

He became a student at McGill University College in Vancouver.

During the First World War, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force, and later served with British forces during the war.

After the war Charles worked for a time in the wholesale lumber business.

On September 5, 1923, in Vancouver, Charles married Irene Isabella McNeill. She was born in Gleichen, Alberta, on January 21, 1897. Her father was Donald B. McNeill (1859-1925); her mother was Mary Wilson (1863-1941).
