Norman appeared at the following addresses in Vancouver.

In 1915, Norman leased the house at 1213 Beach Avenue to Dr. Samuel Charles Corbett and his family. (Dr. Corbett’s widow, Gertrude Ethel Corbett, lived at 1877 Comox Street in 1919 and 1920.)

 

Law Practice

When Norman first arrived in Vancouver, he was a sole practitioner for the first year or so.

Later he became a solicitor for the financial agency firm of Pemberton and Son.

By 1916, he was a partner in the Vancouver law firm of Scrimgeour, Hogg and Gilling. (The other partners were John Murray Scrimgeour and John Pitcairn Hogg. More information appears on the pages for John Murray Scrimgeour and John Pitcairn Hogg.)

From 1919 to 1922, Norman was in a law firm with Stewart St Clair Tufts (1888-1981).

Return to England

Norman did not appear in the Vancouver directories after 1922.

He and Fanny went to England, where Norman resumed his law career.

He had a law partnership in London, England, with Oswald Chippindale. Mr. Chippindale was from Knaresborough, near Harrogate, so Norman may have known him from his days in Harrogate. They dissolved the partnership on February 5, 1923.

An application was duly made by C. H. Heddon, of 1, Station Bridge, Harrogate, Yorkshire, solicitor, that Arthur William Gilling, of 2, Princess Square, Harrogate, solicitor, might be required to answer the allegations contained in an affidavit which accompanied the application, and that his name might be struck off the roll of solicitors of the Supreme Court, or that he might be suspended from practice as a solicitor, or that such order might be made as the Court should think right, on the ground that the matters of fact stated in the affidavit constituted professional misconduct on the part of the said Arthur William Gilling in his capacity of solicitor of the Supreme Court of Judicature in England.

The charges made were:

(1) That the respondent procured the formation of “Patten’s Agency, Limited,” being a company formed (inter alia) to undertake the recovery of debts for its subscribers, and that he did so with a view to its employment by him as an adjunct to his business as a solicitor.

(2) That whether the respondent procured the formation of the company or not, he, with the like view, from its inception financed and controlled it.

(3) That the respondent commenced and carried on certain actions for the recovery of debts placed in the hands of the company’ for collection upon terms which were champertous and improper.

(4) That the respondent by the agency of the company systematically solicited debt-collecting business, and that he did so without disclosing his connection with the company.

. . .

Darling, J. The conclusion of the Court is that the respondent has been guilty of professional misconduct, and with regard to his punishment we have been told that he is not at this moment practising, having disposed of the business which he had. But apparently he has still a certificate with which he might practise. There is nothing before us to shew whether he has finally retired from practice or not, and we think that it should be put out of his power to practise for some time, even should he desire to do so. The order of the Court is that he be suspended for twelve months and pay the costs of the inquiry and of this motion.”
