Ford, Christopher W. (1856-1945)

Christopher W. Ford was a realtor and builder who lived at 1019 Gilford Street from 1909 to 1913. He was sometimes called C.W. Ford.

He was born in Morrisburg, now part of Dundas, Ontario, on September 21, 1856. His father was Henry William Ford (1833-1911). His mother was Deborah Melinda Casselman (1832-1903).

On June 21, 1878, in North Williamsburg, Ontario, Christopher married Marry Anne Smyth. She was born in Matilda, Ontario, on August 20, 1853. Her father was Oliver Smyth, who was born in Armagh, Ireland. Her mother was Lydia Marcellus, who was born in Ontario.

In the late 1880s, Christopher ran a general store in Morewood, Ontario, a small community about 40 kilometres southeast of Ottawa.

About 1890, Christopher sold the general store and moved to British Columbia.

By 1894, he was working in Vancouver as a druggist clerk and was living at 634 [later 668] East Hastings Street. It appears that the house still exists, although it was moved to a nearby location with a new address of 417 Heatley Avenue.

From 1895 to 1899, Christopher was a clerk for a dry goods business operated by Henry Havelock Layfield (1858-1909).

From 1900 to 1903, Christopher operated a grocery store on East Hastings Street. He also raised prize chickens.

By 1904, he was the manager of the grocery department for Woodward’s Department Store Limited. For a time, he was also a director of the company. By 1906, he was operating a real estate and insurance business, called the Ford-Jackson Company, along with John R. Jackson. John Robert Jackson (1874-1920) was a realtor who was also a sometime grocer from Ontario.

In 1906, Christopher sued Woodwards for arrears of salary that he said he had earned while he was also a director of the company. The court ruled in favour of Woodwards.

By 1907, Christopher had started the Ford Realty Company. Mark Lauder was also associated with this business company.

In 1909, Christopher and his family moved to 1019 Gilford Street.

In April 1910, Mary and her daughter-in-law, Mrs. H.S. Ford, went to New York City. Christopher was also going to New York, so that he and Mary could sail to England. They returned to Vancouver in September 1911.

Mary died in Vancouver on December 27, 1912. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

On January 3, 1914, in Vancouver, Christopher married Ethel Louise Holland. She was born on October 13, 1874, in London, England. Her father was William Izard, who was an auctioneer. Her mother was Annie Walker. Ethel had been married in 1898 to Ernest Charles L. Holland (1861-1906).

In 1915, Christopher and Ethel were living at 2064 West 42nd Avenue in Point Grey.

By 1923, Christopher had moved to a Craftsman-styled house 124 St. James Street in North Vancouver. He was carrying on business as a builder. It appears that Ethel was a music teacher for some time.

By 1930, Christopher was retired.

Christopher died in Vancouver on March 14, 1945. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Ethel died in North Vancouver on December 23, 1955. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Christopher W. Ford and Mary Ann Smyth had the following children.

Harry Smyth Ford

Harry (Henry) Smyth Ford was born in Winchester, Dundas, Ontario on September 23, 1880.

He went to the East End School in Vancouver, and later studied medicine at McGill University. By 1905 he was practicing as a physician in Vancouver.

On December 28, 1906, in New York City, he married Georgie Wright McMartin [sometimes spelled “MacMartin.”]. She was born on July 6, 1885, New York. Her father was John Mcfarland McMartin. Her mother was Linda Sheppard. After the marriage, Harry and Georgie lived in Vancouver. Harry continued to practice as a physician with Christopher’s brother, Henry Bernice Ford.

By 1909, Harry and Georgie were living at 1401 Park Drive, at the corner of Bismark Street. [Both streets later received new names: Park Drive became Commercial Drive; Bismark Street became Kitchener Street.]

Harry died on November 8, 1910, at Jervis Inlet, British Columbia. He had gone hunting with some companions. After he shot a goat, he became separated from the rest of the group. The next day, a member of the search party discovered Harry sitting on a stone in a creek bed. He had died of exposure.

Harry was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver. He left a relatively small estate of less than $2400.

In the 1911 Canada census, Georgia and her daughter were living with Christopher W. Ford at 1019 Gilford Street.

By 1912, Georgie was at 1020 Denman Street. From 1913 to 1916, she was living in an apartment in the 2100 block of Cornwall Street.

Georgie later married Edward Peter Kearns, who was an automobile salesman. He was born in Brockville, Ontario, on September 25, 1885. His father was Frederick Robert Kearns. His mother was Mary Margaret Mclaughlin.

Edward died in Vancouver on February 10, 1937. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Georgia died in Vancouver on August 28, 1937.

Harry Smyth Ford and Georgie Macmartin had a daughter named Mary Linda Ford (sometimes called Linda Mary Ford). She was born in Vancouver in 1909. On June 14, 1930, in Vancouver, she married Dennis Withington Hopwood. He was born in Marple, Stockport, Cheshire, England on October 29, 1906. His father was Frank Hopwood. His mother was Annie Elizabeth Withington. This marriage ended in divorce in New Westminster, British Columbia, on December 19, 1949.

Dennis later married Mary Evelyn Blanchard. Dennis died in Vancouver on August 20, 1987.

Clarke Lee Ford

Clarke Lee Ford was born on March 1, 1883, in Morewood, Ontario.

On December 30, 1908, in Kamloops, British Columbia, Clarke married Margaret McLean. She was born on April 30, 1884, in New Westminster, British Columbia in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Her father was Donald McLean (1843-1892), who was a medical doctor. Her mother was Margaret Ann McPhee. This marriage ended in divorce. On April 29, 1920, in Kamloops, Margaret married Jacob Hammond (1871-1949). Margaret died in Kamloops on October 1, 1950.

On November 17, 1917, in Vancouver, Grant married Emily Dorothy Jones. She was born about 1896 in Sussex, England. Her father was William Jones. Her mother was Mary Margaret Blakeley. It appears that this marriage ended in divorce. On July 26, 1927, in Vancouver, Emily married Gordon Tyron Legg Newcomb.

Grant later married Vera Felicia Trounce. She was born on May 20, 1904, in Bristol, England. Her father was William Henry Trounce. Her mother was Beatrice Lavers.
