George Edmund Farrer was a lawyer, investment broker, and real estate developer. The Vancouver directories listed him at 678 Gilford Street in 1893 and at 1900 Haro Street (the corner of Haro Street and Gilford Street) from 1895 to 1903.

He was born on August 13, 1865, in Liverpool, England. His father was Joseph Farrer (1839-1919). His mother was Mary Shields (1843-1922).

George came to Canada with his parents about 1869. The family settled in Parry Sound, Ontario.

It appears that George obtained a bachelor of laws degree sometime in the late 1880s.

On July 18, 1889, in Parry Sound, he married Elizabeth Jane Schenick. She was born in Brampton, Ontario on December 10, possibly in 1858. Her father was Thomas Duncomb Shenick. Her mother was Elizabeth Kirk.

After the marriage, George and Elizabeth moved to Vancouver. George established an investment brokerage business.

By 1893, George appeared at 678 Gilford Street in the Vancouver directory.

By 1894, his investment brokerage business was at 304 Cordova Street. The 1894 directory gave his home address as the corner of Haro and Gilford.

Marriage Record Citation, http://automatedgenealogy.com/uidlinks/ShowMarriage.jsp?id=3690; “Star Gazing, Reflections from the Parry Sound North Star. A collection of birth, marriage and death notices with selected articles and photos, compiled by Laura Knight Heidman. PG.75,Thursday,July 18th,1889 at the residence of the bride’s sister, Mrs. R.B. Armstrong, by Rev. J.A. Chapman, M.A., Geo. E. Farrer, LL.B., second son of Joseph Farrer, Police Magistrate, to Elizabeth Jane Shenick, eldest daughter of Mrs. Shenick, all of Parry Sound. The happy couple left by steamer Maxwell for British Columbia where the intend making their future home. They were accompanied to the wharf by many friends who gave them a good ‘send off’”.

“G.E. Farrer, LL.B.,” Vancouver World, Souvenir Edition, June 1896, page 28: “Prominent among those who devote their attention to the business of the investment broker is Mr. G.E. Farrer, LL.B., a member of the B.C. Stock and Mining Exchange. Mr. Farrer has been identified with this line of business here since 1889. He is also agent for the Canadian Mutual Loan and Investment Co. of Toronto. These investments companies have proved to [be] greatest benefactors to a large portion of the public. The plan of investment is as follows: The investor buys stock, paying a membership fee of $1 per share, monthly dues 60 cents per share, the cash value of the share at time of maturity, estimated to be about eight years from date of first payment, being $100. It can thus be seen how easily quite a sum can be saved in driblets and many a man who would not otherwise have saved anything has found his old age brightened by the maturity of the stock he has taken out in an investment company. Another feature is that of share loans. Loans of 75 per cent. of amount paid are granted on instalment shares which have been in force one year, and any member can thus buy a home on money borrowed on his stock security. Mr. Farrer has done quite a large amount of business for his company in Vancouver. He also makes a specialty of investing private funds.”

Philip Creighton, “Withrow, John Jacob,” in Dictionary of Canadian Biography, vol. 12, University of Toronto/Université Laval, 2003–, accessed September 3, 2015, http://www.biographi.ca/en/bio/withrow_john_jacob_12E.html. [John Jacob Withrow was usually described as the chairman or president of the Canadian Mutual Loan and Investment Company. “The Canadian Mutual was so aggressively marketed that the business morality, if not the strict legality, of its operations was questioned in the press by disillusioned shareholders. The Ontario Loan Corporations Act of 1897 and the subsequent acts of the early 1900s, which regulated the operation of loan companies in Ontario, appear to be in response to complaints received about Canadian Mutual and similar companies. From the point of view of the officers and directors, however, the Canadian Mutual was exceedingly profitable.”]
