Cecil de Courcy Sinclair Hoseason was a financial agent and realtor. He lived at 2058 Beach Avenue in 1919 and 1920.

 

Family Background

Cecil de Courcy Sinclair Hoseason was born in Arungabad, India, on August 12, 1868. (Some sources give his birthdate as August 2, 1869 or August 2, 1878.) His parents were Henry Hoseason (1819-1895) and Adeline Anne Mackenzie (1833-1902).

Cecil’s father was a major general who had served with British military forces in India. He died on December 25, 1895, in Clifton, near Bristol, England.

Cecil’s Early Life

In 1871 Cecil was living with his parents in Marishes, Yorkshire (West Riding), England.

In 1881 he was a student at the Fulneck School at Pudsey, near Leeds, Yorkshire.

He later went to Dover College at Dover, Kent.

In 1886 he was a student at Edinburgh University.

His early military service included five years with the East Surrey Regiment. He later went to South Africa, where he spent five years with the Bechuanaland Border Police. (At least one source incorrectly refers to this as “Buchanan’s Border Police.”)

While he was with the border police, he was part of the Jameson Raid, an ill-fated attack against the South African Republic. Cecil and several other raid members became prisoners for a time.

After the raid, Cecil and other raid participants sued in an English court for damages. They claimed that they had been induced to take part when their superior officers falsely and fraudulently misrepresented the nature of the raid.

In May 1899, Cecil testified on behalf of the plaintiffs.

The Jameson Raid, The Standard (London, England), May 6, 1899, page 4, column 2.

The court ruled against the plaintiffs’ main claim. However, Cecil did receive compensation for two horses that he lost in the raid.

Arrival in Canada

According to his biography in British Columbia from the Earliest Times to the Present (1914), Cecil arrived in Vancouver in 1899. Another biography says that the arrival date was 1901. He first appeared in the 1904 Vancouver directory as “Cecil Hoseson.”

Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory, 1904, page 746.

1945 Cecil not listed under Vancouver names

From his arrival in Vancouver until 1909, Cecil was an agent for North American Life Assurance Company.

On November 18, 1908, in Vancouver, he married Beatrice Mary Taylor. She was born in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England, about 1874 (some sources say December 20, 1868). Her parents were George Taylor and Emma Norbury.

The Chilliwack Progress, November 25, 1908, page 4, column 3.

In 1910 Cecil began to carry on business under his own name (although in later years he again described himself as an agent for North American Life).

Henderson’s City of Vancouver and North Vancouver Directory, 1910, Part 2, page 815.

In 1910, Cecil and Beatrice went to England, along with their young son.

“Snapshots of the City,” Vancouver Daily World, October 6, 1911, page 24, column 4.

Cecil may have returned to Vancouver fairly quickly and returned to England; perhaps he remained in England for several months. In either case, he travelled from England to Canada in August 1912, arriving in Quebec City.

In September 1913, Cecil was travelling in the Fort George area (now Prince George). Beatrice closed up the house on Comox Street and went for a time to Port Mellon on Howe Sound.

On November 17, 1916, Cecil signed his attestation papers to serve with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. (He stated his year of birth as 1878, rather than 1868.)

In January 1917, he qualified to become a lieutenant in the infantry of the active militia.

However, on May 10, 1917, a medical board examined him. The board declared that he was medically unfit to serve because of an injury to his right wrist and chronic arthritis in his right knee. He was discharged from the military forces.

By 1919 he had returned to his role as agent for North American Life Assurance Company. He continued with this work for most of the rest of his working life.

It appears that Cecil and Beatrice began living separately in the early 1930s: the directories listed them at separate addresses after 1932.

Cecil died in Vancouver on April 3, 1945.

Beatrice died in Vancouver on December 21, 1948. She was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Cecil and Beatrice had two sons.

 

Cecil Henry Cochrane Hoseason

Cecil Henry Cochrane Hoseason was born in Vancouver on August 24, 1909.

In 1931 he was working as an airplane mechanic. On December 24, 1931, in Vancouver, he married Frances Constance Roberts, who was a stenographer. She was born in Fernie, British Columbia on October 7, 1911. Her parents were Frederic Charles Roberts and Mary Lawlor.

Cecil spent many years in the Royal Canadian Air Force, and later became a flight lieutenant, aeronautical engineer and test pilot. He retired from the air force in 1958.

Cecil died in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on April 3, 1991. He was buried in Capilano View Cemetery in West Vancouver, British Columbia.

Frances died on December 7, 2007.

Cecil and Frances had a daughter.

 

Oswald Norbury DeCourcy Hoseason

Oswald Norbury DeCourcy Hoseason was born in Vancouver on November 18, 1915.

On August 29, 1940, in Vancouver, Oswald married Dorothy Hooper, who was an usherette at the Lyric Theatre. She was born in Vancouver on April 26, 1920. Her parents were John Henry Hooper and Agnes Matt.

Oswald and Dorothy had a daughter.

In 1945, Oswald was living in Vancouver. In 1948, Oswald was in Boundary Bay, British Columbia.

Oswald’s and Dorothy’s marriage ended in divorce at Vancouver on June 21, 1951. Dorothy later married Frederick Robert Randell, who was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on October 20, 1913. Dorothy died in New Westminster, British Columbia, on January 14, 1976. Frederick died in Vancouver on May 17, 1978.

Oswald later married Jaye, and they had a son and a daughter.

Oswald died in in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on September 15, 2003.
