Kayll , Andrew James (1853-1932)

Andrew James Kayll was an accountant and corporation director. He lived at 1997 Beach Avenue from 1906 to 1932.

He was born on November 12, 1853, in Sunderland, England.

Andrew’s father was John James Kayll (1821-1891), who was born on the Isle of Man. He had moved to Sunderland in 1840 to work as a manager for the glass manufacturing business of James Hartley and Company. In 1860, he became a municipal councillor, and in 1866 he served as the mayor of Sunderland for one year. He died at Staines, Middlesex, in 1891. It appears that Kayll Road in Sunderland is named after him.

Andrew’s mother was Mary Welch (1827-1910).

By 1871, Andrew was a student at the Richmond School in Yorkshire. The school, which had been established in the late 1300s, accommodated about 25 boys, many of whom were planning to go on to a university education.

Andrew later went to Brasenose College at the University of Oxford. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in April 1879.

Shortly after his graduation, Andrew went to Canada. By 1881, he was working as a farmer in Manitoba.

By 1887, he was living in St. Paul, Manitoba, where he was the municipal clerk.

On July 30, 1888, in Wallace, Manitoba, Andrew married Sarah Martha [Jordan] Rattray. She was born on January 24, 1865, in Toronto, Ontario. Her father was Frederick Alexander Rattray (1838-1871), who was a grocer. Her mother was Harriett Johnston (born about 1840).

Andrew and Sarah lived in St. Paul through the 1890s and early 1900s.

Andrew first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1905.

Henderson’s City of Vancouver Directory, 1905, page 312

By 1906, he was at 1997 Beach Avenue, where he continued to live for the rest of his time in Vancouver.

In March 1911, Andrew and Sarah travelled to England (so they were not in Canada at the time of the 1911 census). They were back in Vancouver by the end of 1911.

In 1912, Andrew was a director of the Mainland Transfer Company.

About 1913, Andrew retired from active business, although he and Sarah continued to be active in Vancouver’s social life.

Sarah died in Vancouver on July 25, 1930. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

Andrew died in Vancouver on August 12, 1932. He was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby.

 

Andrew and Sarah had the following children.

 

Swinburne Annandale Kayll

Swinburne Annandale Kayll was born in St. Paul, Manitoba, on June 17, 1892.

In 1916, he was an assistant constable with the Royal Northwest Mounted Police in Alberta.

In November 1916, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force to serve during the First World War.

He later trained as an architect.

On May 13, 1921, in Vancouver, he married Mary Christina Hardy. She was born on July 30, 1898, in the Rural Municipality of Dufferin, Manitoba. Her father was John Alexander Hardy (1868-1944). Her mother was Lucy Ann Ziza Kilburn (1877-1967).

Mary died in Vancouver on January 28, 1941. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park in Burnaby, British Columbia.

On February 16, 1944, in Vancouver, Swinburne married Ivy May Matilda Chapman. She was born in St. Catharines, Ontario, on December 2, 1908. Her father was William Whittaker, who was a policeman. Her mother was Florence Lucy May.

It appears that Ivy had been married twice before. On February 22, 1925, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, she married James Allan McGinnis. This marriage appears to have ended in divorce. By 1930, the Vancouver directory listed Ivy as “Miss I.M. McGinnis.” She was living at 920 Seymour Street and she was a saleswoman for the Hudson Bay Company.

On May 8, 1931, in Squamish, British Columbia, Ivy married Charles Austin Chapman, who was a boilermaker. This marriage ended in divorce in Vancouver on November 1, 1943.

Swinburne died in Vancouver on October 29, 1962.

Ivy died in North Vancouver on January 6, 1979.

Addie Kayll was born on January 31, 1894, in St. Paul, Manitoba, along with her twin brother, Willie. She lived for about two hours, and died on January 31, 1894, in St. Paul, Manitoba.

Kayll v. Hartley, The Times (London, England), Tuesday, Jan 24, 1882; page 11; Issue 30412. [This is a summary, not a complete transcription of the article.] Action for wrongful dismissal. Plaintiff, John James Kayll, J.P. and ex-mayor of Sunderland, became associated with James Hartley, of Ashbrooke-hall, Sunderland, glass manufacturer, in 1840. He was a clerk, traveller, London agent, and later manager of Hartley glass works in Sunderland. In 1856, Mr. Kayll became a partner. In 1879 he transferred the business to Mr. Hartley and became manager for five years, at a salary of £1,000 per year plus 10 per cent of the net profits. Although Mr. Hartley was not to interfere with the management of the business, he began to interfere. In March 1881, Mr. Kayll sued for the rest of five quarterly payments of salary, plus his share of the net profits. In July 1881, Mr. Hartley dismissed Mr. Kayll, on grounds of incompetence, negligence, carelessness, and general misconduct. Mr. Kayll successfully sued Mr. Hartley for wrongful dismissal, and received £1,750 in damages.

Wilson, Irwin and Routledge and recitations by H. Kayll and W. T. B. Kennedy. Then Mr. Kayll, with assistant T.
