Daniell, Ernest Augustus Stowey (1871-1958)

Ernest Augustus Stowey Daniell operated a grocery store and a real property business. He lived at 1813 Morton Avenue in 1911 and at 1874 Pendrell Street from 1912 to 1915. He operated a grocery store at 1178 Denman Street from 1911 to 1913.

Ernest Augustus Stowey Daniell was born on July 30, 1871, in St. Thomas, Devonshire, England. His father was the Rev. George Warwick Bampfylde Daniell (1794-1874). Ernest’s mother was Ellen Smith, who was born in Suffolk, England, about 1829.

George Daniell inherited a significant estate from Augustus Stowey in 1870.

In 1909, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest A.S. Daniell appeared in a list of people attending a gathering at a social event at Levetleigh, the home of Arthur du Cros in St. Leonards, East Sussex. [Hastings and St Leonards Observer East Sussex, England, July 3, 1909.] A fire at the event destroyed a refreshment marquee.

(Arthur du Cros was a member of the British Parliament, and he was opposed to allowing women to vote. He leased Levetleigh for some time, although the lease may have ended before April 1913, when a group of suffragettes set fire to the house, causing significant damage. There is nothing to indicate that Ernest or Janet had any connection to the protests.)

It appears that Ernest and Janet were separated by 1908. At the time of the 1911 England census, Janet was living in “Pevensey Mansions” in St. Leonards, Sussex.

Ernest first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1908. He was operating a confectionery at 1500 Yew Street.

By 1910 he was a grocer, living at 1178 Denman Street.

In December 1911, Ernest advertised his services as a realtor: “E.A.S. Daniell (Den Real Estate), English Bay specialist. Consult me for this district. 1178 Denman street, English Bay. Phone Seymour 1438,” Vancouver Province, December 1, 1911, page 36.

Ernest appeared at the following addresses in Vancouver:

1908 and 1909 1500 Yew Street
1910 1178 Denman Street
1911 1178 Denman Street and 1813 Morton Avenue
1912 1178 Denman Street and 1874 Pendrell Street
1913 to 1915 1874 Pendrell Street
1916 and 1917 not listed under names

In 1916, in Hackney, England, Ernest married Grace Mashiton Brookfield, who was a nurse. It appears that she was born in Liverpool, England possibly on September 30, 1873. Her father was Samuel Brookfield. Her mother was Janet Whyte Cruickshank. Grace had first arrived in Canada about 1910. It appears that Ernest and Grace had been living together for a significant time before they were married: the 1911 Canada census described them as married.

By 1920, Ernest and Grace had returned to Vancouver; Ernest was a salesman with Bargain Sales Realty. In 1920 and 1921 he was living at the Badminton Hotel at 603 Howe Street.

In 1922, Ernest was a freight handler for the Canadian Pacific Railway. He was living at 2566 West Fourth Avenue.

In 1923, he was at 1508 Robson Street.

In 1924, Ernest was an engineer at Pier D. He was living at number 6, 1728 Yew Street.

Grace died in Vancouver on October 27, 1925. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

On October 29, 1927, in Vancouver, Ernest married Jessie Eliza Griffiths. She was born about 1901 in England. Her father was Edward Griffiths. Her mother was Ann Eliza Carter. In the marriage document, Ernest described his occupation as “aeronautical engineer.” It appears that the marriage ended in divorce. There is no further information on what happened to Jessie.

By 1949, Ernest was retired and living at 1539 Monterey Avenue in Oak Bay, British Columbia. He continued to live in Oak Bay until the late 1950s, when he went to stay in Hollywood Sanitarium in New Westminster, British Columbia.

Ernest died in New Westminster on February 15, 1958. He was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster.
