Furber, Montague (1874-1940)

Montague Furber was a retired army officer. He lived at 1951 Robson Street in 1920, at 1914 Robson Street in 1921 and 1922, and at 2075 Nelson Street from 1923 to 1938.

He was born on April 23, 1874, in London, England. His father was Charles Furber (1818-probably 1890), who was an auctioneer. His mother was Emily Darrell Lewin Turner (1835-1918).

He spent much of his career in the British military, including service in India from 1897 to 1900.

On November 16, 1905, in London, England, he married Beatrice Alma Ashley Vernon.

Beatrice was the surviving daughter of Forbes George Vernon (1843-1911), who was a prominent figure in British Columbia. After serving in the British military, Forbes George Vernon came to British Columbia, along with his brother Charles Albert Vernon (1840-1906) and Charles Frederick Houghton (1839-1898). He acquired a homestead in the Okanagan, which eventually grew to be the 13,000 acre Coldstream Ranch. The City of Vernon is named after him. In the 1870s, 1880s and 1890s, he was a member of the British Columbia legislature. He was the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works from 1876 to 1878 and from 1887 to 1894. From 1895 to 1899, he was the agent general for British Columbia in London, England. He died in London on January 20, 1911.

Beatrice’s mother was Katie Alma Branks, who was born in California in 1854. Her father was Robert Branks (1815-1855). Her mother was Catherine McColl (1820-1863). Katie’s sister, Jennie, was married to Doctor Israel Wood Powell.

Katie’s marriage to Forbes George Vernon was on September 11, 1877, in Victoria, British Columbia.

Their first daughter, Kathleen Louise Vernon (apparently sometimes known as Gladys) was born in Victoria on August 5, 1878.

According to the 1881 Canada census, Forbes and Katie had two children.

"Canada Census, 1881," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MV6S-K5L : accessed 9 September 2015), Forbes George Vernan, Nicola & O'Konagan, Yale, British Columbia, Canada; citing p. 18; Library and Archives Canada film number C-13285, Library and Archives Canada, Ottawa, Ontario; FHL microfilm 1,375,921; http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/e/e329/e008211760.pdf

In the 1881 census, the older girl is “Katie Louise Vernon”. However, the younger girl is “Edith Emily Vernon,” who was born about January 1881 in British Columbia. No further information is available at this time for Edith, and it appears that this is actually Beatrice, who was born on January 14, 1881.

Forbes’s wife, Katie, died in Victoria on March 29, 1885. She was buried in Ross Bay Cemetery in Victoria.

Katie Louise Vernon(who also appears to have been called Gladys) and Beatrice were living in Victoria with their uncle, Charles A. Vernon, at the time of the 1891 Canada census.

According to some sources, Katie (Gladys) died in 1892.

By 1901, Beatrice was living in London, England, with her uncle, Granville William Vernon.

On November 16, 1905, Montague and Beatrice were married at St. Peter’s church in Eaton Square in Belgravia, London. [St Peter’s Church, Eaton Square: Wikipedia article; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Peter%27s_Church,_Eaton_Square].

Beatrice was in London when her father, Forbes George Vernon, died on January 20, 1911. The administration of the estate was complicated. The First World War caused some of the delay, and there were disputes about the value of the estate, which included real property in the City of Victoria and elsewhere in British Columbia, company shares, and bank deposits.

In August 1911, Montague and Beatrice sailed on the Laurentic from England to Canada. They arrived in Quebec City, on their way to Victoria, where they spent several months before returning to England.

On June 19, 1912, the Victoria Daily Colonist carried an obituary notice, saying that Montague had died in London. The next day, however, the Colonist clarified that it was actually Montague’s brother who had died.

Montague continued to serve with the British military through the First World War. He was wounded at Arras in 1917. He later became an officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.).

Montague appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1919, living at 1951 Robson Street. From 1921 to 1922, he and Beatrice were at 1914 Robson Street.

In 1923, they moved to 2075 Nelson Street.

Montague was the chief provincial game commissioner from 1926 to 1928. He belonged to the Vancouver Club and the Vancouver Polo Club.

Montague and Beatrice lived at 2075 Nelson Street until 1938. They arranged to demolish the house and to replace it with an apartment building, which was later called Vernon Manor.

While the new apartment building at 2075 Nelson Street was under construction, the 1939 Vancouver directory showed that Beatrice was in the Tudor Manor at 1311 Beach Avenue. Montague was in the Sylvia Court apartments at 1154 Gilford Street.

Montague died in Vancouver on February 8, 1940. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

By 1941, Beatrice was living in a “modified Tudor” house in the 2100 block of Queen’s Avenue in West Vancouver.

“Mrs. Montague Furber,” Vancouver Sun - Jul 26, 1941, page 12, https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=RjNlAAAAIBAJ&sjid=PIkNAAAAIBAJ&pg=4983%2C3170720

Beatrice stayed in the West Vancouver house until about 1948. By 1949, she was living in a house at 2025 Nelson Street.

In 1951, Beatrice moved into an apartment in Vernon Manor. She stayed there until she died in Vancouver on July 25, 1968.

Vernon Manor was demolished in 1973, and a concrete apartment building (2077 Nelson Street) has been on the site since then.

Montague and Beatrice had the following children.

George died in Vancouver on March 15, 1980.

Faith died in Victoria on August 11, 2003.

Doreen Beatrice Furber was born in Ireland on February 1, 1915. In 1921, she was living with her parents at 1914 Robson Street.

She later went to live in England.

Our dear and beautiful Mum passed away peacefully on August 11, 2003 at Victoria Hospice with family at her side. Survived by daughter Cynthia Bagshaw (Derek); son Monty Furber(Darlene); grandsons Robert and Brent Bagshaw, Jason and Jeremy Furber; sister Stella Jenkins; cousin Philip Wheatley; niece Joan Stevenson; and nephews David, Henry, and Robert McCandless, and Mark Smith. Faith was born on May 26, 1917 at the corner of Fort and Linden in Victoria. She attended St. Margaret’s School and was an active member of Beaux Arts. Mum’s greatest pleasures were her family (she was indeed a groovy Grannie), her friends, travelling, entertaining, and her beautiful garden. She loved a good game of bridge, and was our champion scrabble player. Mum was with Eaton’s in Vancouver for many years, and was the overseas buyer for the French Room. After a leave of two years with I. Magnin’s in Portland as a buyer, she returned to Eaton’s. Upon retirement she moved home to Victoria to a very active life. Many thanks for the very kind and wonderful care Mum received at Victoria Hospice. A special thanks to Marion Edwards and David Wilkes for their help enabling Mum to stay at home longer, and also to Dr. W. Cavers for his kind care and humour. Let us remember Faith’s philosophy ‘Life is wonderful, there are so many things to do.’ Service to be held at St. Mary’s Church, Elgin Road, Oak Bay on Saturday August 16, 2003 at 2:00 pm. Burial to follow at Hatley Memorial Gardens. For those who wish to make donations in Faith’s memory, they may be made to Victoria Hospice Society.

Stella Tryphena Jenkins (née Cuming), death notice, Victoria Times Colonist, July 14, 2012; http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/timescolonist/obituary.aspx?n=stella-tryphena-jenkins&pid=158532450: “Jenkins, Stella Tryphena (née Cuming) Crossed her Gap gracefully in Delta, BC July 10 at the age of 96. Stella Cuming was born in 1916, in Victoria BC. Following graduation from St. Margaret’s School in 1933 she married George McCandless, with whom she had four children. The couple separated in 1948. In 1949 she married Bob Smith, having one more child. Bob died in 1956. Stella remained a widow until 1972, when she married RAV (Allan) Jenkins. She was widowed again early in 1991. Over her working life, Stella held several positions in the provincial government, eventually retiring from the BC Forest Service. Upon her retirement she took pleasure in painting watercolours, exhaustive research of her family heritage, and writing. With an enduring interest in the paranormal and spiritualism, in 2007 Stella published “Mind the Gap: Bridging Here with the Hereafter”. She then concentrated on her memoirs. “Through England with Mother” was self-published in 2011 and “Wrong Highway: The Misadventures of a Misplaced Society Girl” was published by Hancock House in May 2012. For much of Stella’s life she was a single mother who taught herself to cope and be independent, quietly bucking convention and her family critics to follow her heart. Her publisher called her “The Rebel in Pearls”. At 90, Stella was still driving her own car. When she reached 95, she said she had only two goals left to achieve: to hold her newest great-grandchild, and to see a published copy of Wrong Highway. She crossed her own bridge to the hereafter, having achieved her goals. A private memorial for family and invited guests will be scheduled at a later date. Published in Victoria Times-Colonist on July 14, 2012.”
