Early Life

James Edward Hall was born on December 2, 1878, in Belleville, Ontario. His parents were Charles Edward Hall (1848-1923) and Ida Jane Rose (1856-1933). Charles Hall was an accountant and grain merchant.

In 1891, James was living with his parents in Whitehead, Selkirk district, Manitoba.

He went to high school and to Manitoba College in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

In 1901, he was living with his parents in Brandon, Manitoba.

 

Business Life

For three years, James worked in the grain business in Lumsden, Saskatchewan and in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He became part owner of the Hall Mining Company in Lumsden.

 

To Vancouver

James arrived in Vancouver in 1905, and he started the Hall Elevator Company.

From 1906 to 1928, he was a main force in the Vancouver Milling and Grain Company. By 1924, Charles Channing Buckland (of 1059 Chilco Street from 1920 to 1923) was the president of Vancouver Milling and Grain Company Ltd. James continued as the general manager of the company.

The Vancouver Milling and Grain Company was involved in a legal dispute that went to the Supreme Court of Canada: Vancouver Milling and Grain Co. v. C.C. Ranch Co., [1924] Supreme Court Reports 671. A grain supplier was not able to get enough railway cars to supply grain to the Vancouver Milling company. Vancouver Milling claimed damages for non-delivery. The court ruled in favour of the supplier. The railway company’s inability or refusal to supply the cars excused the grain supplier from paying damages.

From 1928 to 1934, James was the president of the Hall Grain Company.

In 1935, he was the president of the Shipping Federation of British Columbia (which later became the British Columbia Maritime Employers’ Association). In 1936 he was the executive director of the Shipping Federation.

In 1938, he was living at Caulfeild, West Vancouver.

 

Personal Life

On September 2, 1907, in Vancouver, James married Ethelwyn Ceperley. She was born in Livingston, Montana, on March 10, 1884. Her parents were Henry Tracey Ceperley (1850-1929) and Jennie Wren (or R.) Foster (1863-1892).

Ethelwyn had attended the conservatory of music in Boston, Massachusetts.

After their honeymoon in Southern California and Colorado, James and Ethelwyn returned to Vancouver to live in the Manhattan apartments.

[Thanks to Lynda Maeve Orr for this reference.] “Christ Church was the scene Monday morning of one of the prettiest weddings of the season, when Ethelwyn, the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Ceperley, was united in the holy bonds of matrimony by Rev. C. C. Owen to Mr. J. E. Hall, son of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. E. Hall, of Winnipeg. The church had been decorated with flowers and ferns by the friends of the bridal couple, and it presented a very pretty scene. Despite the early hour and the dreary weather the church was well filled. Promptly at 10:45, to the strains of Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March,” the bride entered the church, leaning on the arm of her father, who gave her away, and accompanied by her bridesmaid, Miss Florence Maclure. The bride was attired in a beautiful gown of Copenhagen blue, with which she wore a light blue hat trimmed with ostrich plumes, and she carried a large shower bouquet of bridal roses. Miss Maclure looked extremely well in a white cloth costume trimmed with panne velvet and lace. She wore a white hat trimmed with ostrich plumes and carried a shower bouquet of bridesmaid roses. Mr. George Hanbury was the best man. Mrs. Ceperley, the bride’s mother, was attired in a mauve gown. She wore a hat of the same color trimmed with mauve ostrich plumes. Mrs. Hall, the groom’s mother, wore a becoming costume of mauve silk mull made over white silk. She wore n white hat trimmed with ostrich plumes. After the ceremony the bridal party adjourned to the Hotel Vancouver, where a private wedding breakfast was served in the green drawing room. The room was beautifully decorated with potted plants and the table floral designs, arranged by Mr. Johnson of the hotel dining room staff, assisted .by Mr. Skippon, were the handsomest ever seen in Vancouver. The design represented two hearts that were woven into one, and the idea was charmingly carried out. The breakfast was decidedly elaborate. Mr. and Mrs. Hall received a very large number of valuable and useful presents. The bride’s going-away gown was a tailor-made suit of brown broad-cloth, with which she wore a leghorn hat trimmed with brown feathers. Mr. and Mrs. Hall left on the Princess Victoria for Victoria, from whence they will take the steamer President for San Francisco. The honeymoon will be spent in Southern California. Upon their return the bridal couple will be at home to their friends in the Manhattan apartments, corner of Robson and Thurlow streets.”
