Kenyon, George Frederick (“Fred”) (1883-1915)

George Frederick (“Fred”) Kenyon was an electrical engineer. He lived at 1174 Denman Street in 1914, and at the rear of 2043 Pendrell Street in 1915.

He was born on June 9, 1883, in Belper, Derbyshire. His father was James Henry Turnor Kenyon (1851-1918), who was a veterinary surgeon. George’s mother was Fanny (sometimes Fannie or Annie) Elizabeth Hulland (1854-1919).

In 1881, James Kenyon had become bankrupt; he was discharged from bankruptcy in 1883. During the First World War, James was a captain in the British military forces. He was living at 21 Macklin Street in Derby when he died on September 28, 1918.

George’s mother, Fannie, died on October 26, 1919. Both James and Fannie are buried in Nottingham Road Cemetery in Derby.

George studied electrical engineering in England. In 1901, he was living in Derby, Derbyshire, and he was working as an electrical engineer’s apprentice.

He arrived in Vancouver about 1909.

George did not marry. He lived in a series of houses in Vancouver.

1911 no address: electrician, S.S. Monteagle
1912 1011 Pacific Street; electrician, A.D. Hotson
1913 no address; electrician, A.D. Hotson
1914 1174 Denman Street; foreman, Hotson and Gillies
1915 2043 Pendrell Street (rear); electrical expert, Hotson and Gillies

 

For most of his time in Vancouver, George worked as an electrical engineer for Alexander Denis Hotson (1873-1954), a Scottish electrical engineer who arrived in Vancouver about 1900. After 1913, George Ackland Gillies (1878-1959) joined Mr. Hotson.

The evening of April 7, 1915, was very rainy. About 10:00 p.m., while George was walking across the street at the intersection of Comox Street and Denman Street, he saw a car coming. The driver of the car was Roy Lee, of 46 West 12th Avenue, who had been a chauffeur for about six years. Mr. Lee sounded his horn and swerved to avoid hitting George. At the same time, George apparently turned to go back across the street. The car struck George and caused many serious injuries. Although Mr. Lee stopped and arranged for George to go to the Vancouver General Hospital, the injuries were so severe that George died within an hour.

A coroner’s inquest concluded that George’s death was the result of an accident.

According to the death certificate and a death notice in the Vancouver Sun, George was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver. There is also a memorial for him in Nottingham Road Cemetery in Derby, where his parents are buried.

“Chauffeur is Held; G.R. [sic] Kenyon Died Last Night as Result of Mysterious Accident,” Vancouver Province, April 8, 1915, page 8:

“George F. Kenyon, an electrical engineer, residing at 2043 Pendrill [sic] street rear, died in the General Hospital last night and Roy Lee, 46 Twelfth west, a chauffeur, is detained at police headquarters awaiting an investigation, to determine whether the deceased was struck by the car Lee was driving or if he stumbled and fell to his death on the pavement at the corner of Comox and Denman streets.

In the car at the time of the accident were two passengers who both declare that the automobile was proceeding slowly when the accident occurred, and they with Lee, are of the opinion that the automobile did not strike the man, but that he slipped an in falling struck his head against the runningboard of the car. Lee saw the man and swerved to avoid hitting him.

As soon as Mr. Kenyon fell, Lee stopped his car and rendered every assistance possible. He secured Dr. Woodley to attend to his injuries and carried him to a nearby house. The police ambulance was summoned and the injured man was taken to the General Hospital where he died shortly after his admittance.

Lee immediately reported himself at police headquarters where he was detained by Deputy Chief McRae while Detective Inspector McLeod and Detectives Crewe and McDonald made an investigation.”

“Kenyon’s Death Accidental is Jury’s Verdict,” Vancouver World, April 9, 1915, page 2:

“That deceased came to his death as a result of injuries received by being accidentally struck and knocked down by an automobile, driven by Roy Lee, at the intersection of Comox and Denman streets on the evening of April 7,” was the verdict of the jury empanelled by Coroner T.W. Jeffs to inquire into the death of George F. Kenyon, who passed away at the General Hospital on the same night as the accident. The inquest took place at the undertaking rooms of Nunn, Thompson & Clegg, yesterday afternoon.

Medical evidence was given by Dr. Curtis, who performed the post-mortem examination, and who stated that the vault of the skull of deceased had been fractured, the right side of the chest crushed in and every rib broken, Hemorrhage had been caused by broken bones piercing the lungs. The immediate cause of death was hemorrhage and shock following the wounds. In the opinion of the witness the wheels passed over the body, as the mud-guard of the auto could not have crushed the victim so severely.

Further evidence elicited the fact that the night was very rainy, the hour being 10 o’clock. The driver claimed that he sounded his horn immediately he saw the man. The deceased was walking irregularly in a diagonal direction across the street when the car was approaching. When the car was nearing him the deceased turned about and started to retrace his steps. It was when swerving to the left to avoid the pedestrian that Lee ran him down with fatal results. The driver of the car drew up and rendered all possible assistance, removing the deceased to the General hospital.

There were several ladies in the car who bore the driver out in his statement that the deceased was walking irregularly . They stated that they felt no jolt so that the car could not have passed over the body of the deceased. The car had brought up quite a piece beyond the body, causing Dr. Jeffs to remark that if every auto which was said to be going at a slow rate of speed required 30 feet in which to stop, every auto on the street was a menace to pedestrians. Mr. Lee stated that he had been six years in the auto-driving business.”

“Many Auto Accidents; Two Serious Injuries to Children Reported Thursday Afternoon,” Vancouver Province, April 9, 1915, page 8: “Automobile accidents are increasing at an alarming rate in the city and nearly a dozen minor jitney smashups are recorded each day at police headquarters. In the majority of cases they are collisions and the property damage is small. Yesterday two accidents were recorded where persons were seriously injured, while the night before George F. Kenyon was killed. . . .

Yesterday afternoon the coroner’s jury empanelled to enquire into the death of George F. Kenyon returned a verdict of accidental death as a result of injuries accidentally received by being struck by an automobile driven by Roy Lee.

According to the evidence given by Lee and several ladies who were in the car at the time, Kenyon was walking irregularly across Denman street when first observed, and when the car was near him he turned and retraced his steps. The driver swerved to avoid him, and thought that the rear mudguard must have struck him, for the occupants of the car said that they felt no bump signifying that the wheels had passed over his body. Lee declared that he had reduced the speed of the car from fifteen miles per hour to five miles when approaching Kenyon.

The medical evidence was to the effect that the lungs had been pierced by several ribs which were broken, while the dome of the skull had ben fractured. The doctor was of the opinion that the accident could not have caused all that damage if the wheels had not passed over his body.”

“Series of Accidents Due to Automobiles Take Place in City,” Vancouver Sun, April 9, 1915, page 4: “Quite a number of automobile accidents have occurred during the thirty-six hours ending at midnight last night, but fortunately the majority of them were not of a serious nature. Unfortunately, however, one man, George F. Kenyon, paid with his life . . .”

George F. Kenyon, death notice, Vancouver Sun, April 10, 1915, page 7: “Kenyon—The funeral of the late George F. Kenyon will take place today at 2 o’clock from Nunn, Thomson & Clegg’s chapel, 520 Richards street. Service will be conducted by the Rev. Harold G. King. Interment will take place in Mountain View cemetery.”
