Irvine, James Duncan (1872-before 1949)

James Duncan Irvine was an inspector for the British Columbia branches of the Bank of Montreal. He lived at 1949 Barclay Street from 1913 to 1915.

James was born in Ontario on June 16, 1872. His father was Joseph C. Irvine, who was born in Scotland about 1837; his mother was Cornelia White, who was born in Ontario about 1839. The family was living in Edwardsburgh, in eastern Ontario, in 1871: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edwardsburgh/Cardinal; http://www.edwardsburghcardinal.ca/.

By 1891, the family was living in Moose Jaw, which was then in Assiniboia West in the Northwest Territories. James was living with his widowed mother, and was working as a bank clerk. His older sister, Mary, and his two younger brothers, Joseph Hume Irvine and Andrew Balfour Irvine, were also living in Moose Jaw.

On August 10, 1898, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, James married Winifred Brooke Bodington. She was born on July 29, 1877 in Kingswinford, Staffordshire, England. Her father was George Fowler Bodington (1828-1902); her mother was Alice Brooke (1840-1897). [In 1888, Constance Eaton Bodington, Winnifred’s sister, had married Lauchlan Alexander Hamilton, who laid out much of the survey of Vancouver.]

James died before 1949. Winifred died on December 31, 1949, after she was struck by a motor vehicle in Victoria, British Columbia.

James and Winifred had three children.
