Grant, George Vere Hobart (1863-1959)

George Vere Hobart Grant was a commercial traveller and insurance agent. He lived at 2020 Beach Avenue in 1903 and 1904.

George Vere Hobart Grant was born on May 18, 1863, in Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia.

George’s father was Angus Grant (1829-1889), who was a mariner in Nova Scotia. Angus carried on with this business after he arrived in New Westminster in 1882. George and the other members of the family joined Angus in 1884. Angus died in New Westminster, British Columbia, on November 20, 1889. He was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster.

After George’s arrival in New Westminster, he worked as a clerk in hardware stores in New Westminster and Vancouver.

On June 22, 1897, in New Westminster, George married Sarah Amelia Pearson. She was born on August 30, 1868 in Brantford, Ontario. Her father was Thomas Davies Pearson (1828-1911), who was a Methodist minister. Sarah’s mother was Isabella Robson (1836-1916).

By 1900, George was a salesman for the Vancouver Hardware Company at 339 Hastings Street.

For their first years in Vancouver, George and Sarah lived at the following addresses.

1900 to 1902 1123 Comox Street
1903 and 1904 2020 Beach Avenue
1905 to 1907 1045 Haro Street
1908 to 1916 837 Burrard Street
1917 to early 1920s 1069 Thurlow Street

 

George later worked as a bookkeeper in a hardware store.

Sarah died in Vancouver on April 27, 1954. She was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster, British Columbia.

George died in Surrey, British Columbia, on October 10, 1959. He was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster.

George and Sarah had a daughter.

 

Rena Victoria Grant

Rena Victoria Grant was born on April 19, 1899, in New Westminster.

She studied English at the University of British Columbia and at the University of California.

It appears that she never married.

Rena was a school teacher in Victoria, British Columbia, in the 1940s. She wrote a series of articles on Chinook Jargon; these articles are still useful sources in current language studies.

Rena died in Alameda, California, on May 25, 1987.

Angus Grant (father of George Vere Hobart Grant)

Angus Grant; Under the gentle slope of the hill; May 14, 2011; https://oppositethecity.wordpress.com/2011/05/14/under-the-gentle-slope-of-the-hill-brownsville-fraser-river-kdek-ferry/: Captain Angus Grant had come out to the west coast in 1882 from Port Hawkesbury, Inverness, Nova Scotia with his brother Peter Grant. In 1884 they were joined by 14 other members of the family—their mother, brothers, wives and children. Angus Grant had extensive maritime experience. He was the owner of a British-registered merchant ship, the Cornucopia. He was the first native of Nova Scotia to take a vessel across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1877 Grant had testified before the Halifax Fisheries Commission on matters relating to international fishing disputes. In British Columbia Angus Grant had gone straight to work along the new line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, operating a construction locomotive.”

“He was born on June 17, 1828, in the Forest of Dean, Gloucester, England, and passed away in New Westminster on the I3th of September, 1911, at the age of eighty-three years. His father was a minister of the Wesleyan Methodist church, and, reared in a Christian atmosphere, the son became a local preacher at the age of nineteen. He was a young man of twenty-three years when, in 1851, he came to Canada with Egerton Ryerson. In 1852 he became a candidate for the ministry of the Wesleyan Methodist conference, was received on trial the following year and in 1856 was received into full connection and ordained. . . . The year 1891 witnessed the arrival of Mr. Pearson in British Columbia, at which time he took up his abode in New Westminster. He had been married on the 17th of June, 1856, to Miss Isabella Robson, a daughter of John and Euphemia Robson, the former a farmer and mill owner and the first jailer at Sarnia, Ontario. She is also a sister of the Rev. Ebenezer Robson, a pioneer Methodist minister of British Columbia, and also of David and John Robson, who likewise took an important part in the development of the far west. . . . Mr. and Mrs. Pearson became the parents of two sons and three daughters. One son, Thomas R. Pearson, manager of the Dominion Trust Company, Ltd., of New Westminster, has been choir leader of the Methodist church for thirty years, and is one of the best known laymen in British Columbia. A daughter, Euphemia Isabella, is the wife of the Rev. D. R. McKenzie, of Japan. The others are: Mrs. Harvey Johnson, of New Westminster; Sadie Amelia, the wife of George H. Grant, of Vancouver, and Frank Raymond, of New Westminster. “
