Vicker Wallace Haywood was born in Alberton, Prince Edward Island, on August 11, 1864. (He was sometimes called “Vicker” and sometimes “Wallace.”) His father was George Haywood, who was a farmer. Vicker’s mother was Margaret Donald.

In 1883, Vicker went to Sudbury, Ontario, where he worked on the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. In 1885, he travelled to British Columbia, stopping in Portland, Oregon, on the way. In British Columbia he worked on the construction of the Esquimalt Dry Dock.

Later he worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway at Ducks, near Kamloops. (“Ducks” was named after an early rancher named Jacob Duck. Hewitt Bostock bought the ranch from Jacob Duck, and the area became known as Monte Creek.)

Vicker arrived in Vancouver in the fall of 1885. After the Great Fire in 1886, he became a member of the city’s early police department.

The Vancouver Police Department; History of the VPD; http://vancouver.ca/police/about/history/: “The seeds of the VPD’s commitment to that principle were sown at Vancouver’s first city council meeting, on May 10, 1886, when night watchman John Stewart was offered the honour of serving as the city’s first police chief. He was on duty a month later when a blaze now remembered as the Great Fire of 1886 destroyed the newly incorporated city. Stewart was soon joined by Jackson Abray, V.W. Haywood, and John McLaren, to form the fledgling Vancouver Police Department.”

“Vancouver’s first police patrolman is dead.

Last surviving member of the city’s original three-man police force, Vicker Wallace Haywood, 86, of 4765 Drummond Drive, died in hospital here Thursday.

Mr. Haywood, who later joined Captain J.A. Cates to start a steamship business and who prospected successfully in the Klondike, was sown in as constable shortly after Vancouver was incorporated in 1886.

‘I was the first patrolman in the city’s police service,’ he told city archivist Major Matthews, during Vancouver’s 1946 Jubilee.

Mr. Haywood came to B.C. from Prince Edward Island in 1885. He did construction work on docks and railways before coming to Granville in the fall of the same year.

He stayed with the police force for some years and was first sergeant. He went to the Klondike where he teamed up with Captain Cates. On their return, they became partners in a steamship company.

Later, Mr. Haywood went into the hotel business. His elder brother, William Haywood, long owner of the Commercial Hotel, started the city’s first steamer taxi service.

Wallace was one of the voters in the first civic election in Vancouver, ‘the hottest election I have ever known in Vancouver,’ he termed it.

Funeral services will be held at 1:30 p.m. Monday at Georgia Chapel of Center and Hanna, interment in Masonic Cemetery, Burnaby. In addition to his wife, at home, Mr. Haywood is survived by a son, Harold D., a daughter, Mrs. J.W. Gledhill, and four grandchildren, all of Vancouver; and two sisters, Mrs. Seymour Thompson and Mrs. Alexander Milligan, both of Prince Edward Island.”

William Donald Haywood (brother of Vicker Wallace Haywood)

A history; British Columbia, by R.E. Gosnell, R. E.; compiled by Lewis Publishing Company; Hill Binding Company, 1906; page 739; https://archive.org/stream/historybritishco00gosnrich#page/739/mode/1up

“William D. Haywood, prominently connected with the hotel interests of Vancouver as one of the proprietors of the Commercial, was born on Prince Edward Island May 13, i860, a son of George H. and Margaret (Donald) Haywood, both still living on Prince Edward Island. After completing his education in the public schools of his native place William D. engaged in railroading, in the passenger and freight department of the Prince Edward Island Railroad. In 1880 he went to Colorado and secured work on the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, and five years later, in 1885, came to British Columbia and engaged in carpentering. After the memorable fire he again embarked in railroading, securing employment with the Canadian Pacific Railroad Company, with whom he remained for one year. Coming thence to Vancouver, Mr. Haywood was for one year on the police force, and in 1889 identified himself with the hotel business. In 1898 he purchased the Commercial Hotel, of which he has since been one of the popular and esteemed proprietors.

In 1893, in San Francisco, California, Mr. Haywood was united in marriage to Cassie, a daughter of George Squarebriggs, of Prince Edward Island, and they have one daughter, Georgie. In his social relations Mr. Haywood is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and politically is a Liberal, while his religious preference is indicated by his membership in the Presbyterian church. He owns both business and residence property in Vancouver. The comfort and conveniences which he affords his guests, his courteous treatment of them and his earnest desire to please have secured to him a very liberal patronage and won him the regard of the traveling public.”
