Harrison, Cuthbert Henry (1878-possibly 1939)

Cuthbert Henry Harrison was a bank clerk. He lived at 1830 Alberni Street in 1915 and at 1047 Denman Street in 1916.

He was born on March 24, 1878, in Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland. It appears that his father was Cuthbert Harrison, and that his mother was Elizabeth Piper.

He attended the Royal Grammar School in Newcastle Upon Tyne. He later served with British forces during the Boer War in South Africa.

In March quarter 1909, in Gateshead, Durham, he married Elizabeth Ellen Campbell.

In 1911, Cuthbert and Elizabeth were living in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Cuthbert appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1915 and 1916.

On October 4, 1915, in Vernon, British Columbia, Cuthbert enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force to serve in the First World War.

It appears that he lived in England after the war, possibly working with a firm called Frankland and Frankland.

It appears that he he died in Lambeth district, London, England, in September quarter 1939.

No further information is available for Cuthbert and Elizabeth at this time.
