Charles Stanford Douglas was a journalist, realtor, and politician who was the mayor of Vancouver in 1909. He lived at 2033 Comox Street from 1907 to 1915 and at 885 Chilco Street from 1916 to 1917.

He was born in Madison, Wisconsin, on October 1, 1852. His father was John Amherst Douglas (1819-1862). His mother was Esther Sarah Knappen (1821-1878).

Charles went to the high school in Beaver Dam.

He attended Wayland University in Beaver Dam.

After graduating, he worked at a series of newspapers in Minnesota and Wisconsin. In 1875, he became the owner and publisher of the Superior Times at Superior, Wisconsin.

“Early newspapers in Superior,” James Bardon, Superior Times, July 18, 1903, unknown page, [excerpt]; http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Content.aspx?dsNav=N:4294963828-4294963788&dsRecordDetails=R:BA12513

In 1877, Charles moved to Fort William, Ontario, where he worked for the Day Book, which was a weekly newspaper. Much of the news at that time was about the arrival of the new Canadian Pacific Railway and the anticipated business opportunities.

His newspaper career in Fort William was short, and in 1878 he moved to Emerson, Manitoba, where he established the Emerson International newspaper.

On 29 December 1881, Charles married Annie Marie Johnston of Toronto, Ontario. Her father was James Elden Johnston (1812-1901); her mother was Elizabeth Dever (1814-1893). She was a sister of Benjamin Burrows Johnston (about 1854-1908), who also lived in Emerson for a time. Benjamin lived at 2075 Nelson Street from 1906 to 1908.

Charles became active in local and provincial politics in Manitoba. He was a member of the Emerson town council in 1881, and became the mayor of Emerson in 1888. From 1883 to 1889 he represented Emerson as a member of the Manitoba legislature.

In June 1889, he moved to British Columbia, where he was active in the real estate and brokerage business, along with Benjamin Burrows Johnston.

In 1894, Charles ran to represent Richmond in the British Columbia legislature, but he was unsuccessful.

In 1901, Charles’s real estate offices were at 409 West Hastings Street. He was living at 1033 Georgia Street with Annie. They continued to live in a series of houses in the West End.

He became a member of the Vancouver Club, the Terminal City Club, the Shaughnessy Heights Golf Club, and the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. He also belonged to the A.F. & A.M. [Ancient Free & Accepted Masonry]. He was also a director of B.C. Refining Company Ltd. and president of Canadian Renard Road Transportation Company Ltd.

In the 1901 Canadian census, Charles and Annie also had a niece, Vesta Ellen Fisher, and a nephew, Charles Stanford Fisher, living with them. Vesta and Charles Fisher were the children of Charles Henry Fisher and Vesta Victoria Johnston (1859-1891).

In 1907, Charles and Annie moved to their new house at 2033 Comox Street.

Anna died in Vancouver on July 7, 1908. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Charles was elected as mayor of Vancouver in 1909.

On March 24, 1909, in Toronto, Ontario, Charles married Elizabeth Manley. She was born in Harriston, Ontario on January 18, 1859. Her parents were John Fisher and Flora McLelland. Elizabeth had been married to Major Frederick Fitzpayne Manley (1852-1907), a mathematics tutor and principal of the Jarvis Street Collegiate Institute in Toronto.

The Vancouver newspapers followed the progress of Charles and Elizabeth across the country.

“Mayor Douglas and his bride spent a few days of last week in Winnipeg, and were guests at the Royal Alexander. They left on Saturday en route for home.” Social and Personal, Vancouver Province, April 8, 1909, page 9.

“Mayor Douglas Arrived Today; His Worship Brings Toronto Bride After Prolonged Wedding Trip – Endorses Statements of Other Civic Delegates on Harbor Improvements and Deadman’s Island,” Vancouver World, April 8, 1909, page 12.

In his role as mayor, Charles did not promote workers’ rights. He was against eight-hour days for civic workers. He also voted in favour of a motion to allow the city to contract out work instead of having city day labourers do the work.

While Charles was mayor, he attended several civic events.

One was the visit of Lord Strathcona (1820-1914) and Clarence Campbell Chipman (1856-1909) to Vancouver on May 31, 1909. They took a drive into Stanley Park and had their photograph taken in front of the Hollow Tree.

Another event was the visit of Earl Grey (1851-1917), Governor General of Canada, to open the Granville Street Bridge on September 6, 1909.

In 1909, while he was still mayor, Charles was also involved in private business. He hired architect George William Grant to prepare plans for the Fortin Hotel on West Cordova Street.

In 1910, Charles tried to get re-elected, but he lost to Louis Denison Taylor.

After his single term as mayor, Charles continued with his business life. In late 1910, he and George A. Barrett were promoters of the Imperial Car, Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Corporation.

The company had great ambitions to follow the example of the Pullman Company in the United States: it would build railway cars, set up a shipbuilding and dry dock business, create a new town on Burrard Inlet, and employ large numbers of employees.

The location of the proposed development in North Vancouver was about where Seymour Golf and Country Club, Roche Pointe Park and Cates Park later appeared.

The company also proposed to set up a branch in Spokane, Washington.

It is not clear what happened to the main company or its proposed branch.

In February 1911, Charles and Elizabeth went on a month-long holiday to Honolulu. In March 1911, they travelled to San Francisco, and returned to Vancouver later in the year.

In June 1911, the Automobile Club of Seattle sent an invitation to the Vancouver Automobile Club to celebrate Seattle’s Potlatch Week from July 17 to 22. On July 15, Charles and Elizabeth drove with a group of relatives to Seattle. They came back to Vancouver on July 23.

In 1913, Charles and Elizabeth went to Ontario. They spent two months in Toronto; then they stopped at Ridley College at St. Catharines to visit with Elizabeth’s son, John. Afterwards, they were going to spend two months in Muskoka.

In 1915, Charles tried again to get elected as mayor of Vancouver. His platform included the exemption of taxes on residential property valued up to $2000, and a graduated tax on business property based on the value of the improvements. In most cases, this would mean that a working family would not pay taxes on their residence. Charles also wanted to reduce city expenses, including the salaries of the mayor, city councillors and department heads, but not those of “underpaid civic employees, such as the police, firemen or city workmen.” Charles again lost the election to Louis Denison Taylor.

For a time, Charles was the president of the local branch of the British and Foreign Sailors’ Society. He retired in November 1915 “on account of ill-health.”

Elizabeth’s sons, Davison Barrett Manley and John Fitzpayne Manley, both enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War.

In late 1915, Charles and Elizabeth moved from 2033 Comox Street to 885 Chilco Street.

In the summer of 1916, Charles went for a swim in English Bay, between the English Bay Pier and Englesea Lodge. Other swimmers and boaters noticed that he was nearly drowning, and several people came to help. Two teenagers, Eloise Angell of 821 Bute Street, and Bobby Young of 744 Gilford Street, were the heroes who managed to rescue Charles, who weighed about 200 pounds, according to the news reports.

Charles died in Vancouver on April 15, 1917. He had been in the Vancouver General Hospital for several weeks, and Elizabeth had been visiting with him. In the morning, she received a telegram informing her that her son, John, had been killed in action on April 9. On the same morning, Elizabeth’s other son, Davison (sometimes called David) arrived home on a short leave, and heard the news about John. When Elizabeth and David telephoned the hospital to convey the news to Charles, they discovered that Charles had died at about 9 a.m.

Charles’s funeral was at Christ Church on Georgia Street.

Elizabeth continued to live in Vancouver. When she died in Vancouver on March 6, 1927, she was living in the Nottingham Apartments at 1234 Robson Street.

Charles and Annie Marie Johnston did not have any children.

Charles and Elizabeth Fisher did not have any children.

Elizabeth Fisher did have children from her previous marriage to Frederick Fitzpayne Manley.

Davison Barrett Manley

Davison Barrett Manley was born in Toronto, Ontario, on June 27, 1893.

During the First World War, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

On September 22, 1920, in Vancouver, Nell married Davison Barrett Manley

In 1924, Nell was a patroness for the Vancouver Amazons’ Ball. This was a dance to raise funds to support the Amazons hockey team, who were going to Banff, Alberta, to compete for the alpine Championship Ladies’ Hockey Cup.

By 1935, Davison was the building manager of the Vancouver Stock Exchange Building.

In 1937, Nell was elected captain of the women members of Jericho Golf and Country Club.

In 1939, Davison was charged with stealing 330 shares of Bralorne Mines Ltd. At his first trial on April 2, 1940, the jury was unable to reach a verdict. A week later, a second jury found him guilty, but recommended mercy. He appealed to the British Columbia Court of Appeal, which ordered a new trial. On September 9, 1940, he was acquitted.

It appears that Davison’s and Nell’s marriage ended, and Davison married Hanna Margaret Carroll. She was born on February 4, 1903, in Colville, Washington State. Her parents were George Francis Carroll and Elizabeth Jones.

Davison died in Penticton, British Columbia on May 20, 1972. Hannah died in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on February 22, 1985.

Nell died in Vancouver on November 24, 1976.

John Fitzpayne Manley

John Fitzpayne Manley was born in Toronto, Ontario on July 10, 1896.

He attended Bishop Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario, where he was a good cricket player. He later became a law student.

During the First World War, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force.

He was killed in action on April 9, 1917.

Benjamin Burrows Johnston (business partner of Charles Stanford Douglas, and resident of 2075 Nelson Street from 1906 to 1908)

Moberly, Manitoba, http://vantagepoints.ca/stories/moberly/: “Whether the town’s founder, Benjamin B. Johnston of Emerson, Manitoba, genuinely thought that the site he chose would be ideal for a lakeside resort town, or was simply trying to get rich by swindling distant buyers who wouldn’t have known worthless land even if they’d seen it, has never been clear. Due to a lack of factual evidence, the site could have been imagined to be a successful spot for hunting lodges, being so near to the lake frequented by all manner of waterfowl. Nonetheless, plans were laid out for the town of Moberly.”

Phebenell (Phebe) Henry, death notice, Barry’s Bay, Ontario, http://yourlifemoments.ca/sitepages/obituary.asp?oid=634451: “PHEBENELL (PHEBE) HENRY September 30, 1926 – August 20, 2012 Phebenell Senkler Manley was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. She was the youngest daughter to Davison and Margaret Ellen Manley, with older siblings Jack and Barbara. Spirited, bright and athletic as a youth, she participated in various sports, notably as a high jumper on the Hudson Bay Track Team. She graduated with her Bachelor of Economics from the University of British Columbia in 1949. On September 8, 1949, Phebe married Robert (Bob) Henry, a Social Worker with a common interest in positive social change. Phebe and Bob lived in Vancouver during their early years of marriage, and then moved to Ontario with their three daughters. She had a deep passion for education and received her Teaching Certificate from Ontario College of Teachers in 1963. Phebe taught for the North York School Board 1963-1972 and for the York School Board 1972-1987. Following her retirement she travelled to China, France and throughout Canada. Phebe moved to Barry’s Bay, Ontario to be closer to her eldest daughter and grandchildren, and quickly became an active member of the community; volunteering with the Barry’s Bay Library, Adult and Child Literacy Programs, Opeongo Seniors Club, and the Barry’s Bay Farmer’s Market; playing tennis, swimming, painting, playing bridge, entertaining friends, being a book club member, a rabid CFL football fan (even listening to games on the radio during blackout periods), and spending time with her family. She was a long time believer in social justice. She sought out voices of diversity, supported local and global causes of equality, and treated people of all ages and experiences with kindness and respect. Phebe will be remembered for her energy, warmth and her wonderful wit and sense of humour. Predeceased by husband Robert Henry, brother Jack Manley and sister Barbara Willows. Phebe is survived by daughters Lesley MacDonald (Peter Ritchie) of Combermere, ON, Ann Stuart (John Stuart) of Edmonton, AB, and Ellen Henry (David Rittenhouse) of Victoria BC; grandchildren Anna, Caitlin, Bronwyn, EmmaRose, Gavin, Ian, Alexander, and Graham; great-grandson Leif. The family wish to thank Dr. Bruce Harris, Margaret Atkinson and Maureen Kay for their care for Phebe over many years. In recent years Phebe greatly benefited from the additiional dedicated care of the staff at the Water Tower Lodge, CCAC, St. Francis Memorial Hospital and the Valley Manor. Memorial gathering will be held at a later date. In memory of Phebe, donations to the Community Resource Centre (Killaloe), Inc. Food and Toy Drive and the Madawaska Valley Food Bank would be greatly appreciated by the family.”
