James Henderson was the president and manager of the Henderson Publishing Company. He lived at 1974 Barclay Street in 1906 and 1907.

 

Early Life: Scotland and Montreal

James Henderson was born in Paisley, Scotland about 1846. He moved with his parents to Montreal, Quebec.

By about 1870, he had married Jane Black, who was born in Ontario on May 13, 1850. (Jane’s brother, Thomas Black, was a prominent businessman in Winnipeg. The Black family moved to Montreal in the late 1850s.)

It appears that James was in business as a hatter and furrier, and that he was living at 203 Notre Dame Street in Montreal in 1870 and 1871.

Montreal directory, 1870-1871, page 298.

Montreal directory, 1870-1871, page 298.

The 1871 Canada census described James as a “mauchonnier,” which is a person who makes fur-lined muffs.

The term “mauchonnier” also appears in the listing for Daniel Nagy, just above James Henderson’s entry. (Other census references in English in 1881 and 1891 describe Daniel Nagy more generically as a furrier.)

Sometimes mauchonnier is simply a furrier.

Life in Winnipeg

About 1871, James and his family moved to Winnipeg, where he worked at various jobs, including a period at the post office.

He was involved with the Grand Lodge of Manitoba: in 1875 he was the senior grand warden and in 1876-1877 he was the deputy grand master.

In 1878 he established a company that published city directories.

James’s work often required him to visit cities and towns throughout western Canada.

James and Jane had the following children.

 

Leonard George Henderson

Leonard George Henderson was born in Montreal, Quebec, on April 8, 1868.

From 1871 to 1891 he was living with his parents.

He worked for his father’s directory business.

Marriage to Janet Waitt

On April 11, 1893, in Victoria, British Columbia, Leonard married Janet Hibben Waitt (also known as “Nettie”). She was born in Victoria about 1867.

Her father was Marshall Wilder Waitt (1832-1892), who sold musical instruments, sheet music, stationery and books.

Marshall Waitt died in Victoria in 1892.

Leonard continued his association with the directory business for many years. In 1921, he and his brothers, Selby and Robert, were directors of the Henderson Directory Company.

Henderson’s Vancouver Directory, 1921, page 705.

It appears that Leonard and Janet were separated or divorced. In 1933, Janet was living in England when her sister, Georgina, died.

Leonard died in Vancouver on March 6, 1938. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver. (His death certificate said that he was single.)

“There has always been considerable controversy with regards to how many brand books have been published over the years since the brand ordinance was passed in 1878. The only information available indicates the first brand book printed in the Northwest Territories was published during May of 1888 by James Henderson, and printed by W.T. Walker & Co. of Winnipeg.

This book contained the bylaws of the Alberta Stockgrowers Association and outlined to ranchers their responsibilities with respect to prairie fires, rewards for cattle rustling, unbranded livestock, and cattle drives. It contained also the first ordinance that was enacted for the marking of stock including a list of early registered brands and the ranchers who owned them.

Henderson published a second book during 1889 and a third edition in 1894. A supplement book was printed in 1896 and the fourth edition was also published by the Henderson Publishing Co. in 1898. The Calgary Herald tackled the enormous task of publishing the next book in 1900. This company printed another edition during 1903 and a supplement in 1904.”

“I Do Not Propose To Sit Idly Down And Be Made To Suffer”: The Curious Case of the Two Mrs. Pigotts; , 2015 By Liz Broadwell; https://pennrare.wordpress.com/2015/09/29/i-do-not-propose-to-sit-idly-down-and-be-made-to-suffer-the-curious-case-of-the-two-mrs-pigotts/: “Perhaps Ida’s labors did bear fruit in death. In September 1906 Mabel failed to contest Charlotte’s appeal to have the judgment against her for alienation of affections reversed, and in 1908 she immigrated to Canada, where Herbert had already resided for several years. In 1916 a census of Manitoba records them living as husband and wife in Winnipeg, right next door to daughter Muriel, married since 1913 to barrister Russell Aubrey Carman (1878-1962), two blocks away from daughter Elaine, married since 1910 to publisher James Selby Henderson (b. 1878).”

“Car Owner Sues For Insurance Payment,” Winnipeg Tribune, October 1, 1931, page 3: “James Selby Henderson, Winnipeg publisher, in a suit entered in King’s Bench court today, seek[s] to enforce payment of $1,000 from The Phoenix Fire Insurance Co. of Paris and the General Casualty Insurance Co. of Paris, to cover damages to his automobile, wrecked near St Jean, July I8. In a statement of claim, A. M. S. Ross, plaintiff solicitor, alleged that his client held policies with the defendant companies insuring his motor car against all loss or damage, but had not been able to collect any money to cover the loss.”

Winnipeg Free Press, December 11, 1957, page 6: “J. Selby Henderson, of 1215 Wellington crescent, president of the Henderson Directories, Ltd., and for many years prominent in Winnipeg’s business, sport and fraternal organizations, died at his home Tuesday. Mr. Henderson, 79, had been ill for many months. Born in Winnipeg, Mr. Henderson attended Carlton school and Winnipeg Collegiate. He was the son of James Henderson, who in 1876 compiled the first directory of the city of Winnipeg. He started his business career at an early age and had been actively associated with the company all his life, succeeding his father in the presidency in 1919. Mr. Henderson was an outstanding athlete in many sports, played football, won snowshoe races, raced motor cars and was a duck hunter. His major sport, however, was rowing. He competed in many local regattas, at the Canadian and National regattas and on two occasions at the Royal Henley Regatta in England. He also won medals as a singles sculler at national and international regattas. He was a member of the Winnipeg Rowing club and served the club for many years coaching crews and scullers. Mr. Henderson was a member of the Manitoba club, a life member of the Ancient Landmark Lodge, Masonic Order, of which his father was a founder. Survivors are his wife, Elaine; daughter Mrs. David Evans of Winnipeg; and four grandchildren. His son, P.O. Selby Rogers Henderson, DFC, was reported missing in action during the Second World War. Funeral service will be held at p.m. Friday in-All Saints Anglican church, with Rev. J. Blewett officiating. Burial will be in St. John’s Cathedral cemetery. Thomson’s chapels are in charge of arrangements.”

 

Elaine Pigott (wife of James Selby Henderson)

Herbert, as he seems to have been called, received a bachelor of arts degree from Ursinus College in 1875 (and later served as president of the Ursinus College Alumni Association of Philadelphia) and a bachelor of laws from the University of Pennsylvania in 1879. Around 1881 he married Mabel Dexter Pratt (1859-1933), the daughter of physician J. Howell Pratt (ca. 1823-1866) and his wife Charlotte (ca. 1830-1860). Together, Herbert and Mabel had four daughters: Mabel Lucy, Ida (b. 1883), Elaine (b. 1888), and Muriel (b. 1890). Herbert established a successful law practice in Philadelphia with an office at 329 Chestnut Street and later in the Bullitt Building on South Fourth Street; he was also employed in various capacities by the Fidelity Insurance, Trust and Safe Deposit Company until 1898 or 1899. He was noted for his financial shrewdness, successfully investing in stocks and land, and often traveled to oversee his interests in the United States and abroad.
