Ernest and Janet: Married Life

In 1903 and 1904, Ernest was living at 32 Marlborough Mansions in London.

It appears that Ernest and Janet were separated shortly after their marriage. (According to statements in a divorce action in 1914, Ernest deserted Janet in 1907.)

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.

“Fire at a Garden Party,” Daily Mail (London, England), Issue 4128, July 3, 1909; page 3.

 

(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.)

 

 

At the time of the 1911 England census, Janet was living in “Pevensey Mansions” in St. Leonards, Sussex. (This was the same address that appeared in the probate documents for Georgina Augusta Monro, above.)

To Vancouver

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 lived at the following addresses in Vancouver.

 

1908 and 1909 1500 Yew Street
1910 1178 Denman Street
1911 1178 Denman Street and 1813 Morton Avenue

Divorce from Janet

In 1914, Janet petitioned the English court for a decree of divorce from Ernest. She alleged that he had deserted her in 1907 and that he had committed adultery with several unnamed women. The court made a final order of divorce on October 18, 1915.

Marriage to Grace Brookfield

In 1916, in Hackney, England, Ernest married Grace Mashiton Brookfield, who was a nurse. It appears that she was born in Banda Oriental, Uruguay on September 30, 1873. Her parents were Samuel Brookfield and Janet Whyte Cruickshank.

Grace had first arrived in Canada about 1910. Ernest and Grace lived together for a significant time before their wedding in 1916: the 1911 Canada census described them as married.

 

Return to Vancouver

In 1919, Ernest and Grace 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 1923, he was at 1508 Robson Street.

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

Marriage to Jessie Griffiths

On October 29, 1927, in Vancouver, Ernest married Jessie Eliza Griffiths. She was born about 1901 in England. Her parents were Edward Griffiths and Ann Eliza Carter. In the marriage document, Ernest described his occupation as “aeronautical engineer.”

For about eight years in the 1930s, Ernest and Jessie lived in England. They returned to Vancouver in 1940, and they lived with Jessie’s mother on Wallace Street. (Edward E. Griffiths and his wife, Elsie, lived at 3325 Wallace Street in 1940.)

 

Vancouver Sun, August 30, 1940, page 17, column 8.

 

Vancouver Sun, September 2, 1940, page 6, column 5.

 

In the 1940s, Ernest and Jessie were involved with the World Service and Healers’ Association. (Further details appear on the page for 1919 Beach Avenue.)

It appears that Ernest’s and Jessie’s marriage ended in divorce.

There is no further information on what happened to Jessie.

 

Ernest: Later Life

By 1949, Ernest was retired and living at 1539 Monterey Avenue in Oak Bay, British Columbia.

He remained in Oak Bay until the late 1950s, when he was admitted to Hollywood Sanitarium in New Westminster, British Columbia. (In 1959, the Hollywood Sanitarium changed its name to Hollywood Hospital. It closed in 1975.)

Leslie Douglas Monro Daniell

Ernest and Janet had a son, Leslie Douglas Monro Daniell, who was born on May 23, 1904.

In 1911, he was living in Hastings, Sussex, with his mother.

He may have travelled to Canada in the 1920s.

There is a record of a Leslie D. M. Daniell arriving in Saint John, New Brunswick on January 31, 1922.

Hollywood Sanitarium (later Hollywood Hospital)

Hollywood Hospital (New Westminster, B.C.); Other form(s) of name: Hollywood Sanitarium; Hollywood Hospital (New Westminster, B.C.); British Columbia Archives, https://search-bcarchives.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/hollywood-hospital-new-westminster-b-c: “The Hollywood Hospital was founded in 1919 in New Westminster, B.C. as the Hollywood Sanitarium. It was a private hospital for the treatment of alcoholics and patients with other addictions. Hollywood became well-known in British Columbia as a facility that treated prominent and wealthy members of society, including a number of celebrities. The Hollywood Sanitarium changed its name to the Hollywood Hospital in 1959. In 1957, the Medical Director, Dr. J. Ross MacLean, began experimenting with the use of LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs in the treatment of alcoholism and a variety of personality disorders. He and his colleagues reported good results. However, the LSD treatments were viewed suspiciously by the wider medical community and the provincial government, and by 1975 MacLean had been pressured into closing the hospital.”
