On December 1, 1906, in Vancouver, James married Theodora Humphreys. She was born in Barrow-in-Furness, England, on August 14, 1878. Her father was James Humphreys. Her mother was Jane Emma Pearson.

In the 1907 Vancouver directory, James was at 1931 Comox Street (although this address did not appear in the street listing in 1907).

The 1908 Elite Directory listed James and Theodora at 1937 Comox Street (which did not appear in the 1908 street directory):

James continued to work as a government assayer until about 1932. By 1933, he had begun a new career as an agent for Confederation Life Association.

Theodora died in Vancouver on April 1, 1937. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

James stayed with Confederation Life through the mid-1950s.

By about 1960 he had moved to Ganges, on Salt Spring Island. He died in Ganges on June 30, 1961. He was buried in St. Mark’s Cemetery on Salt Spring Island.

 

James and Theodora had the following children.

 

Ellen Pamela Farquhar

 

Ellen Pamela Farquhar was born in Vancouver on April 14, 1908.

On July 3, 1931, she married Maurice John Crehan, who was an accountant.

Maurice enlisted with the Canadian military forces during the Second World War.
