Coates, Albert William (1868-1955)

Albert William Coates was a financial agent. He lived at 1102 Denman Street from 1917 to about 1921. He lived at 1874 Pendrell Street in 1925.

Albert was born about 1868 in Manchester, England. His parents were Henry Coates (1821-1889) and Emma [probably Emma Stafford (1831-1893)].

On June 6, 1892, in Chorlton-Upon-Medlock, Lancashire, Albert married Alice Maud Bower. She was born in Chorlton-Upon-Medlock on January 27, 1873. Her father William Bower. Her mother was Elizabeth (probably Rainsford).

After their marriage, Albert and Alice lived in the greater Manchester area until about 1913. Albert was a loans office manager.

About 1913, the family came to Canada. Albert worked as the secretary for Basil Wolfe-Merton’s financial agent firm. Basil Wolfe-Merton (1868-1945) was born Basil George Milner. He lived for a time in the Chorlton area of Manchester before coming to Canada.

The 1913 Vancouver directory gave Albert’s address as “The Holmes Gilley” in Burnaby, British Columbia. In 1914 and 1915, Albert appeared at 2151 Vanness Avenue in the Collingwood area of Vancouver.

By 1915, Albert had established his own financial agency firm called “Coates and Company.”

By 1916, Albert had moved to 1102 Denman Street.

In October 1916, Albert enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force to serve during the First World War. (He said that his birth date was February 18, 1871, which was about three years too young.) He served in France, and he was demobilized on April 4, 1919.

It appears that the family then moved to California for a short time. They were living in Pasadena, California in the 1920 United States census.

However, Albert was soon back in Vancouver; he worked as a salesman for the Fuller Brush Company in 1921 and 1922.

In 1924 and 1925, he was living at 1874 Pendrell Street. He was the district manager for the Richwell Brush Manufacturing Company, which was at 1068 Edmonds Street in Burnaby, British Columbia. Their sales office was at number 5, 163 West Hastings Street in Vancouver.

By 1926, Albert and Alice were in Los Angeles, California. They lived in the Los Angeles area throughout the 1930s. In 1938, they were living at 1928 North Vermont Avenue in Hollywood, California.

In 1935, Albert applied to become a naturalized United States citizen.

Basil George Wolfe-Merton (employer of Albert William Coates)

Redrooffs Resort in Halfmoon Bay, http://www.garylittle.ca/history/redrooffs.html: “Basil Wolfe-Merton was in active service for the entire war and in 1916 was awarded the Military Cross for conspicuous gallantry in action. Upon returning to Canada he lived in North Vancouver for a time and he died in 1945 in Ganges at the age of 77. He is buried in St. Mark’s cemetery on Salt Spring Island next to his wife Estelle who died the following year. His son Adrian would later change the family name to Wolfe-Milner — apparently this was Basil’s surname in England before emigrating to Canada.”
