Macdonell, Donald Greenfield (1849-1916)

Donald Greenfield Macdonell was a lawyer who lived at 1906 Nelson Street from 1907 to 1916.

Donald Greenfield Macdonell was born in Morrisburg, Ontario, on July 2, 1849. His father was Alexander Greenfield Macdonell (1817-1889), who was a lawyer. Donald’s mother was Helen Sophia (“Ellen”) Doran (1826-1871).

Donald became a lawyer in 1874. He lived for a time in Almonte, Ontario, a town of textile mills on Canada’s Mississippi River, about 20 kilometres southwest of Ottawa.

On June 30, 1875, in Almonte, he married Margaret Rosamond. She was born about 1858 in Carleton Place, Ontario. Her parents were Bennett Rosamond (1833-1910) and Adair Mary Roy. Bennett Rosamond was a prominent manufacturer and politician in Almonte.

Margaret died in Almonte on August 28, 1877.

In January 1878, Donald was elected reeve of Almonte by acclamation.

On January 22, 1880, he became the member of the House of Commons for North Lanark, Ontario. (He served until 1882, but he was unsuccessful in his attempts to get re-elected.)

On June 15, 1880, in Morrisburg, Donald married Edith Rose. She was born in Ontario about 1858. Her parents were Isaac Newton Rose (1811-1874) and Ruth Doren (1831-1908).

Donald first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1897. He was living at 1270 Nelson Street.

Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory, 1897, page 646 [edited image].

Henderson’s BC Gazetteer and Directory, 1897, page 646 [edited image].

He lived at the following addresses in Vancouver.

1897 to 1900 1270 Nelson Street (listed as D.J. Macdonell in 1898; as 1072 Nelson Street under names in 1899)
1901 to 1905 1370 Davie Street (“13XX Davie” under names in 1900-1901 directory; “Davie, cor. Broughton” in 1901 directory)
1906 to 1916 1906 Nelson Street (listed as 1900 Nelson Street in 1906)

It appears that Edith was the actual owner of 1370 Davie Street. In 1901, the B.C. Electric Railway and the City of Vancouver had made improvements to the grade of the hill, causing a cave-in and other damages to the Macdonell property. A proposed settlement would have had each party pay one-third of the cost of a retaining wall.

Vancouver Daily World, December 14, 1901, page 14, column 4.

Vancouver Daily World, December 14, 1901, page 14, column 4.

The settlement did not work out, and Edith sued the railway company, complaining of trespass and damages. However, the court dismissed Edith’s action, because the railway company had not actually gone onto the Macdonell property, and the city had a statutory right to grade and maintain the city streets.

A few years later, Donald and Edith moved to a new house at 1906 Nelson Street. While they were waiting for the new house to be ready, they stayed briefly at “the residence of Captain Archibald on Jervis Street.” They moved into the new house in November 1905. (As with the house at 1370 Davie Street, Edith was the owner of the Nelson Street house.)

Donald had an active legal practice in Vancouver.

Vancouver Daily World, October 29, 1898, page 5, column 2.

Vancouver Daily World, October 29, 1898, page 5, column 2.

He sometimes acted for the federal government, especially in cases involving immigration.

Vancouver Daily World, March 24, 1908, page 8, column 6 [portion of article].

Donald and Edith appeared in the Vancouver society directory in 1908 and 1914. (Their son, Geoffrey, and his wife were also in the directory in 1914.)

Donald was an avid dog breeder. From time to time his dogs seem to have wandered from home.

Vancouver Daily World, October 29, 1906, page 9, column 1.

Vancouver Daily World, October 29, 1906, page 9, column 1.

He acquired a dog named “Spots Rip Rap,” formerly owned by Edward Lyman Denison (1870-1952), who was a Chicago physician.

The Asheville Weekly Citizen, Asheville, North Carolina, December 14, 1906, page 6, column 7.

In 1908, Spots Rip Rap went missing in Vancouver.

Vancouver Daily World, November 5, 1908, page 16, column 4.

In 1909, Donald and Spots Rip Rap were featured in an article about a dog show in Tennessee.

Macdonell as “the judge,” although Donald was not actually a judge.]

Donald was a member of the Vancouver Club.

In 1909 there was speculation that Donald might become a judge in the new British Columbia Court of Appeal. However, he remained a lawyer and did not become a member of the court.

Edith died in Vancouver on December 13, 1910. She did not leave a will, and Donald became the administrator of her estate, which was worth about $40,000.

Donald died in Vancouver on November 11, 1916. Although the assets of his estate were about $24,300; the liabilities were $23,985.

Donald and Edith had the following children.

 

Adele Rose Macdonell

Adele Rose Macdonell was born in Morrisburg, Ontario, on March 16, 1881.

On December 2, 1902, in Vancouver, she married Edward John Ridgway, who was an importer of goods. He was born in England in 1870. His parents were Henry Akroyd Ridgway (1840-1878) and Mary Gertrude Huish (1842-1924).

“Your worship,” explained the chief, “this man is accused of riding a bicycle on the sidewalk. He has put up $3 bail.”

“Forfeit the bail by way of fine,” said the P.M. [police magistrate], and just the suspicion of a smile played about his lips.

“Death of D.G. Macdonell; Was Lawyer, Politician and Breeder of Bird Dogs,” Vancouver Province, November 13, 1916, page 20:

“Although the notice was short the funeral this afternoon of Mr. D.G. Macdonell was very well attended by personal, political and professional friends. While Mr. Macdonell has been il for some time, his death came somewhat suddenly on Saturday evening. Mr. Macdonell came to Vancouver in 1896. He was born at Morrisburg, Ont., on July 2, 1849, and was educated at Upper Canada College. He was called as a barrister in 1874, and practised almost continuously at Almonte, Ont., until he came to Vancouver. He was reeve of Almonte and was also a member of the Canadian House of Commons for South Lanark, 1880-02. In early days he was prominent in athletic circles and at one time held the mile-and-a-half championship of Ontario. He was a great fancier and breeder of field dogs and won the American Derby for field dogs in Tennessee with Spots Rip Rap. During his illness his dogs have been kept at Ladner but they will now likely be disposed of. He was a widower. One daughter is married in New York and the other, Miss Phyllis, lived at home with him here. One son, Jeffrey, resides in the Bulkley Valley.

The late Mr. Macdonell was hereditary chieftain of the Macdonells of Glengarry. He was an able lawyer and though his voice was harsh was a very effective public speaker. He first came into prominence in Vancouver in the federal election campaign of 1896. The late Rev. G.R. Maxwell was the Liberal candidate. On a certain evening when billed to speak in the old market hall Mr. Maxwell was taken ill. A large audience beheld a stranger appear to speak in Mr. Maxwell’s stead. The speech was one of the best efforts of the campaign which ended in the election of Mr. Maxwell. One notable near-speech of the same campaign was by the late E. King Dodds in the interests of the Conservatives. During the entire evening he delivered only ten words of his address; the crowd refused to hear more and Dodds refused to leave the platform.”

“B.C. Elec. Ry. Wins Davie Street Suit; Action Brought for Lowering of Street Grade is Dismissed With Costs,” Vancouver Province, March 21, 1902, page 1:

“Mr. Justice Drake this morning handed down judgment in the case of Macdonell vs. British Columbia Electric Railway Company for damages. Judgment is given to the defendant with costs.

The action was brought by Mrs. D.G. Macdonell, as owner of a large property on Davie street, below Jervis, which was alleged to have been damaged by the cutting down of the Davie street hill by the tram company, thus causing a cave-in and other injuries to the property. It was alleged that the defendants wrongfully excavated without leaving any support to the soil.

After reviewing the evidence the judge decides that the weight of evidence preponderates in the defendant’s favor. There is no direct evidence of trespass. It is a mere matter of surmise. The portion of the street between the lot line and the defendant’s track was left in its natural state until the city took charge and by ploughing and blasting cut the rest of the street down to its correct grade. With regard to the street having been graded below the level of the plaintiff’s lots, the evidence of the defendants showed that this was not the work of the defendants, but was done by the corporation and the right of the company to grade the streets is a statutory right and is not in question in these actions. The action is therefore dismissed with costs.”

Dr. Coley was born in New York City on December 28, 1926 to Bradley Lancaster Coley, MD, an oncologic surgeon and his wife, Phyllis. His grandfather was William B. Coley, MD, a prominent surgeon who conducted early investigations that led to future understanding of the role of the immune system in cancer. Dr. Coley graduated from St. Paul’s School, Yale College and Harvard Medical School. He served in the US Navy medical corps. After completing his surgical training at Boston City Hospital and Peter Bent Brigham Hospitals, he was a highly regarded and beloved surgeon at the Hartford Hospital for over 35 years. He was a volunteer surgeon on the hospital ship HOPE during its stay in Conakry Guinea in West Africa. This experience shaped his belief in the potential for physicians and health care workers of all backgrounds to work harmoniously. Dr. Coley was a passionate fly fisherman who spent close to 50 years in pursuit of salmon in Canada. Another favorite locale was Block Island, RI where he had a home. He leaves his beloved wife Kathleen (McDermott) Coley, his three children, Christopher Coley, MD and his wife Diane, Susan Coley, and Peter Coley and wife Sandrine, and his three grandchildren, Alex, Sam and Juliette. He also leaves two brothers, Peter and William and their families and was dearly loved by his stepchildren and stepgrandchildren. He was predeceased by his late wife, Mary Smythe Coley, MD, and his daughter Elizabeth. A memorial service will be held in late spring. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Dr. Coley’s memory may be made to Christ Church Cathedral “Church Street Eats” program, 45 Church Street, Hartford, CT 06103 or churchstreeteats@cccathedral.org. Doolittle Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. To share memories or send condolences to the Coley family, please visit www.doolittlefuneralservice.com.”
