Hogg, John Pitcairn (1886-1950)

John Pitcairn Hogg was a lawyer. His wife, Margaret, was a physician. Together, they were at 2043 Pendrell Street in 1914, 1999 Beach Avenue from 1916 to 1920, and 1860 Barclay Street in 1919.

John Pitcairn Hogg was born on March 11, 1886, in Cambuslang [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambuslang], southeast of Glasgow, Scotland. His father was John Hogg (1853-1941); his mother was Mary Pitcairn (sometimes called Janet Simpson Pitcairn (1859-1936)).

He studied law and practiced in Glasgow. He came to British Columbia, and was called to the British Columbia Bar in 1911.

He married Margaret Gardiner Forrest. Margaret was born in Hamilton, Scotland on October 11, 1886. Her father was Walter Forrest; her mother was Mary Scott. Margaret graduated in medicine from Glasgow University in 1904. She practiced medicine in Scotland and England. Later she worked for the Vancouver City School district. She retired from medicine in 1920.

By 1916, John Pitcairn Hogg was a partner with the law firm of Scrimgeour, Hogg and Gilling (John Murray Scrimgeour, John Pitcairn Hogg and Norman Victor Gilling).

In May 1918, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force in the First World War.

By 1927, the family was living at 1951 Cedar Crescent. Mr. and Mrs. Hogg both belonged to the Jericho Country Club. Mr. Hogg was a member of the Connaught Skating Club, and he belonged to the Board of Trade. He was also the Secretary-Treasurer of the Canadian Red Cross Society.

On the evening of June 19, 1930, John Pitcairn Hogg was driving in the Shaughnessy area of Vancouver, with Margaret as a passenger. After colliding with a car driven by Frederick Barriball, the Hogg car spun around, and the passenger door opened suddenly. Margaret was thrown out of the car, and she received severe head injuries. She was admitted to the hospital but, even after surgery, she failed to recover, and she died on June 25. She was buried in Ocean View Cemetery in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Both Mr. Hogg and Mr. Barriball were charged with manslaughter. The Crown withdrew the charges, however, after the coroner’s jury held that Mrs. Hogg’s death was accidental, and caused by an error in judgment by both Mr. Hogg and Mr. Barriball. (Frederick John Barriball died in Vancouver on February 6, 1963.)

On February 20, 1937, in Vancouver, John Pitcairn Hogg married Mrs. Mary Beveridge. Mary was born in Orwell, Prince Edward Island. Her father was Norman Macleod; her mother was Mary Ann Macswain. Mary had married George Lister Beveridge in Vancouver on June 4, 1913. George had died in Seattle, Washington on March 16, 1926.

Mary died in Victoria on September 24, 1938.

In 1940, perhaps because of his own unfortunate car crash, John Pitcairn Hogg became involved with Frank Constant Hall’s book called the Digest of Automobile Accident Cases. (Frank C. Hall was a Vancouver lawyer who was born in 1911; he was killed in action in Sicily on August 5, 1943.)

In 1947, he became the chairman of a new labor relations board, which was intended to help the government to straighten out the labor situation in the province.

In 1948-1949, he became president of the Uniform Law Conference of Canada.

He died in Victoria on July 23, 1950.

John Pitcairn Hogg had the following children:

“It is fitting at a time when attention is focused on the social phases of provincial parliamentary pageantry that the Minister of Land and Municipalities, the Hon. A. Wells Gray of New Westminster, should formally announce today the betrothal of his elder daughter, Janet Davidson, to Mr. Gilbert Pitcairn Hogg, only son of Mr. J. Pitcairn Hogg of Victoria, formerly of Vancouver. The wedding, of widespread interest, will take place in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, New Westminster, the evening of November 19. Both Miss Gray and her fiancé attended the University of British Columbia, the former affiiliated with Alpha Phi women’s fraternity and Mr. Hogg a member of Zeta Psi.”
