William Henry Pope Clement was a judge who lived at 1914 Robson Street in 1909.

He was born in Vienna, Ontario on May 13, 1858. His father was Rev. Edwin Clement (1819-1885). His mother was Mary Couch Pope (1825-1910). William was the sixth of nine children.

William was an outstanding student. His early education was in the public schools in Bowmanville, Eglington, Streetsville, and Pictou, Ontario. He graduated from the University of Toronto, where he received a gold medal for general proficiency. Then he went to Osgood Hall; he was called to the Ontario bar in 1880. For about 21 years, he practiced law in Toronto.

In Brampton, Ontario, in 1889, he married Elsie Lulu Main. She was born in Brampton on January 19, 1862. Her father was James William Main, who was an official assignee for the Province of Ontario; her mother was Emmeline (Elsie)Wolfe.

In the 1891 federal election, he ran as a Liberal candidate in York West, Ontario. Although he received about 43 percent of the votes, he lost to Nathaniel Clarke Wallace (1844-1901), the long-time Conservative politician, who received about 57 percent.

William also wrote a definitive book called The Law of the Canadian Constitution (first edition: 1892; later editions in 1904 and 1916). In 1897, he published a textbook called the History of the Dominion of Canada.

In 1899 and 1900, he spent some time in Dawson, Yukon Territory, as the legal advisor to the Yukon Council.

In 1901, he moved to British Columbia. He had a home in the City of Columbia.

Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory - 1901 - page 289 - City of Columbia

Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory – 1901 – page 289 – City of Columbia

Columbia was about a mile away from Grand Forks, in the Boundary Country of the West Kootenay region. For a short time, Columbia vied with Grand Forks for dominance in the area, but in 1901 the residents in both centres voted to amalgamate. In 1902, the British Columbia legislature passed the Grand Forks and Columbia Amalgamation Act (Statutes of British Columbia, 1902, chapter 29). The former City of Columbia is now called “West Grand Forks.” Thus, for most of the early 1900s, William was living in Grand Forks.

(Although the Clement family appears in British Columbia in the 1901 census, Mrs. Clement and the children also appear in the listing with her parents in Brampton, Ontario.)

By 1902, William had set up a law practice in Grand Forks with John D. Spence.

Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory, 1902, page 314, Grand Forks

John David Mcdonald Spence was also from Ontario. He was married to Elsie’s sister, Lilly. John Spence also had an office in Greenwood, British Columbia around 1910.

In the 1903 British Columbia provincial election, William ran for the Liberal party in the Grand Forks electoral district. He won 23 percent of the votes, but he lost to the Conservative candidate, George Arthur Fraser (1866-1930) a druggist from Grand Forks.

Even though William was not a successful political candidate, his association with the Liberal party resulted in his appointment on August 24, 1905, as a judge of the County Courts of Kootenay and Yale.

On December 7, 1906, he became a judge of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, replacing Lyman Poore Duff (1865-1955), who became a judge of the Supreme Court of Canada.

Sometime after William became a British Columbia Supreme Court judge, he became involved in a dispute over his travelling expenses while he was attending court. Section 18 of the Judges’ Act said “No judge shall receive any travelling allowance for attending in court of chambers at the place where he resides.”

William spent his time as a judge mainly in Vancouver. However, he claimed that his residence was in Grand Forks. He filed a series of expense claims for $4,290 for his travelling expenses between Grand Forks and Vancouver. The federal government sued William to get the money back. The Exchequer Court judge, Walter Gibson Pringle Cassels (1846-1923), concluded that William’s residence was in Vancouver and that William had deliberately and fraudulently claimed the expenses. William’s appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada was largely unsuccessful.

According to the various sets of reasons in the Supreme Court of Canada, William lived in the following places:

  • Until August 1907, he maintained a residence in Grand Forks, even though he spent much time away because of his judicial duties.
  • In August 1907, he rented Mrs. Alexander Henderson’s furnished residence at 1424 Burnaby Street in Vancouver. Alexander Henderson (1860-1940) had been a judge in the British Columbia County Court. On June 16, 1907, Mr. Henderson became the Commissioner of Yukon. The Elite Directory of Vancouver (1908) showed Mr. Justice and Mrs. Clement at 1424 Burnaby Street.  When Mrs. Henderson returned in April, William’s family returned to Grand Forks; William moved into the Vancouver Hotel.
  • About this time, William’s friend, Mr. White, who lived at 1914 Robson Street, asked William to take Mr. White’s furnished house while he was away in England. William and his family lived at Mr. White’s house until Mr. White returned.
  • William was expecting to become a judge in the new British Columbia Court of Appeal; this would have required him to move to Victoria. In the meantime, he leased another furnished house that belonged to George Risteen, who lived at 1332 Robson Street.

The Supreme Court of Canada agreed that William had to repay the expense allowances.

By 1912 William moved to a new house at 2001 15th Ave. West, at the northwest corner of Maple Street and 15th Avenue.

William died at his home on May 3, 1922. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Elsie died in Vancouver on May 5, 1948. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery.

 

William and Elsie had the following children.

On April 13, 1920, in Vancouver, Shirley married Charles Alexander Phipps Murison. He was born in Grenfell, Saskatchewan on October 7, 1894. His father was William Johnston Holt Murison, who was a banker; his mother was Alice Lepel Phipps.

Charles served with the British Army and later with the Canadian military, until he retired in 1949 and went to live on Vancouver Island.

Shirley died in Duncan, British Columbia, on March 1, 1977.

Charles died in Vancouver on October 31, 1981.

He went to the University of Toronto, and jointed the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. In 1916, he joined the Royal Flying Squad. He was credited with 14 victories during the war. He was killed on August 19, 1917, while flying near Langemarck in Belgium.

Mrs. Mary C. Clement, The Collingwood Bulletin – Thursday, April 7, 1910, http://www.kent.ac.uk/law/spu/Uglow/mary_couch_pope_obit.doc

The Collingwood Bulletin – Thursday, April 7, 1910

Mrs Mary C CLEMENT was the daughter of the Rev John POPE, Wesleyan missionary in the West Indies, where she was born, and the sister of the Rev W B POPE, D.D., so distinguished throughout Methodism as a masterly theological writer.

In her early womanhood she lived in Plymouth, England and while living there was married to the late Rev Edwin CLEMENT.  Bro. CLEMENT passed away to his reward a quarter of a century ago, and consequently was unknown to the present generation of Methodists, but in his day and his his ministerial labors, he was widely known and everywhere greatly beloved and honored.

In all the varied experiences involved in a ministerial life of 40 years, Sister CLEMENT was his constant support as a counsellor in times of perplexity and a comforter in times of sorrow.  Her husband was indebted to her possibly more than he knew for the success which crowned his service in all his circuits.  Her natural reserve made it impossible for her to be conspicuous in social gatherings or church conventions, but her beautiful example as a Christian and a Christian minister’s wife, her prudence, wisdom and diligence in the work of the church, her faithfulness and devotion to all the interests of her family life, and the unquestioned power of her spiritual life pervaded every community in which she lived.

Her sons have risen to eminence in the circles of social and civil life of the country and her daughters to highest esteem for their womanly, Christian qualities.

At an advanced age, at the home of one of her daughters, in the perfection of Christian experience and fulness of Christian hope, she passed away to her everlasting rest.
