Green, Roger Henry Carleton (1843-1924)

Roger Henry Carleton Green was a lawyer who lived at 1919 Robson Street from 1905 to 1908; 1912 to 1916; and 1918 to 1925. Although he apparently continued to own the house throughout this period, he and his family travelled frequently, and other people lived in the house while he was away.

References to him did not always use his full name. He sometimes appeared as “R.H.C. Green”; “Henry Green”; or “R. Henry C. Green.”

He was born in County Kildare, Ireland on June 3, 1843. His father was Thomas Webb Green, who was a priest for a time, and was later an archdeacon in Granard, Ireland, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Granard]). Thomas Webb Green married Ellinor-Maria Gwynne, who was the daughter of Rev. Dr. William Gwynne, of Wheatfield in County Kildare, Ireland. Thomas Webb Green died on November 22, 1875 in Granard.

Henry Green was educated in private school in Ireland. By 1871, he was a lawyer in Picton, Ontario. In 1872, he was a witness at the wedding of Charles Courbould, who was also a lawyer in Picton.

In 1888, Henry married Mary Adeline Richards.

The Richards family was prominent in Canadian legal circles and in Canadian politics. Mary’s father was Stephen Richards (about 1820-1894), a well-known lawyer in Toronto, Ontario; her mother was Susan Chaffey (1823-1917), who lived at 1951 Robson Street in Vancouver. Mary’s sister, Susan Chaffey Richards, was married to William Ritchie Robertson, who also lived at 1951 Robson Street. Another relative was Margaret Hargraves Richards, the daughter of British Columbia Lieutenant-Governor Albert Norton Richards. Margaret was married to John Harry Senkler, who lived at 1889 Haro Street in Vancouver.

By 1891, Henry and Mary were living in Los Angeles, California; their son, Herbert, was born in Sierra Madre, California on November 10, 1891.

The family was still in in Los Angeles in 1900. By 1904, they were building their Greene & Greene-designed house at 1919 Robson Street in Vancouver. Even after they moved to Vancouver, however, they often travelled back to California.

Henry died in Chehalis, Washington State, on November 8, 1924, while driving to California. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Mary died in Vancouver on August 9, 1932. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery.

Henry and Mary had three children who survived them. There is a small amount of information that suggests that they may have had other children, but there is nothing conclusive.

Deaths (02/25/08): COWDRY John Roger was born in Vancouver, June 15, 1921 to Augustus Nathaniel Cowdry and Aileen Mary Green Cowdry. He died peacefully in hospital of complications from pneumonia on February 13, 2008. John (or Jack) never married, and is survived by his cousins Nancy Tinning, Ret (Dorothy) Tinning, Campbell (Judy) Tinning, Mary Tinning (Phil Yakymishen), all of Penticton; Liz (Bob Food of Salt Spring Island); Ted Chamberlin (Lorna Goodison) of Toronto, and their respective families, and other cousins and relatives in B.C., Eastern Canada, and the United States. John lived all of his life in Vancouver, and most of his life in his beloved home in Kerrisdale. A gruff manner concealed a sharp mind, and a keen sense of humour. He was a solitary man, with a kind and gentle soul. The transportation industry was always of special interest to Jack. He owned and managed Cowdry Cartage in Kerrisdale for many years, from the 1940’s through to the early 1970’s. He was a dedicated model train operator, and assembled a magnificent layout in his basement. Many neighbourhood and family children found great delight in observing Jack operate his model train. After a stay in hospital in the Fall of 2007, John moved to South Granville Park Lodge in December. He was content, and settling in well. His family would like to extend their most sincere thanks to all of his incredible neighbours who watched over him, and helped him in so many ways over a very long time. We are grateful to Dr. Frank Hou for his wonderful care over many years, and to the health care professionals in the community, those at VGH Sub Acute Elder Care, and UBC Transitional Unit Purdy 3 who worked so hard to help him. The South Granville staff and administration were wonderful to him, and he was happy there. Jack knew all of these people cared for him deeply. As per his wishes, there will be a Memorial Service for John on Saturday, March 1st, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. at The Hamilton Harron Funeral Home, at 5390 Fraser Street in Vancouver (E.38th and Fraser St.). No flowers please, but, if desired, a contribution to CNIB or the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.

Barbara E. Lee, obituary, http://yourlifemoments.ca/sitepages/obituary.asp?oId=494500:“LEE, Barbara E. – Peacefully slipped away, in her 97th year with her beloved sister Nancy Carruthers by her side and her niece Alicia, on Tuesday April 26th, in Ottawa. Predeceased by her parents Florence and Henry St. George Lee, her brothers Henry (Hank), Richard and sister Peg Moore, survived by her sister Phyllis Neilson of Stratford and many nieces and nephews. Barb joined the RCAF Women’s Division in 1942 and was one of the first 20 WDs to go overseas. Barb resplendent in her medals met the Queen last summer and was able to tell her she saw her during the war and attended her coronation! Her love of pilots stayed with her to the end with one by her side. Barb now has her wings. Per Ardua ad Astra. Barb lived life to the fullest travelling around the globe or sitting on the dock at the lake with a scotch in hand! Barb also was an avid Stratford Festival supporter – Barbie was the anchor and beloved mentor of our family and will be deeply missed. Cheers Barbie. Donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated.”
