MacKay, Amanda Maria (1859-1942)

Amanda Maria MacKay operated a confectionery at 1178 Denman Street from 1914 to 1916.

She was born on July 17, 1859, in Margate, Prince Edward Island. Her father was Reuben Tuplin (1825-1899), a carriage builder and dry goods merchant. Amanda’s mother was Harriet Tuplin, who was Reuben’s first cousin.

On December 27, 1881, in Kensington, Prince Edward Island, Amanda married William David MacKay (McKay). He was born in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island on October 22, 1855.

William was active in the woollen industry in Charlottetown. For a time, he was an alderman on the Charlottetown municipal council.

In 1891, William and Amanda were living in Prince Edward Island.

At the end of the 1890s, the family moved to Yukon Territory, where William established himself as a miner.

William’s sister, Barbara, was married to James Hamilton Ross (1856-1932), who was the commissioner of the Yukon Territory. In August 1901, Barbara and her son, William, were on the S.S. Islander, sailing to Victoria, British Columbia. William MacKay’s daughter, Harriet Louise “Missie” Mackay, was with Barbara and her son. Barbara, young William and Missie all died when the Islander sank after hitting an iceberg near Douglas Island.

William and Amanda continued to live in Dawson for several more years. By 1911, they had moved to Vancouver, where they lived at 403 Georgia Street, which at the intersection with Homer Street. By 1913, William was in the real estate business. It appears that William and Amanda separated about this time.

From 1914 to 1916, Amanda had a confectionery shop at 1178 Denman Street; she was living at the same address.

In 1914, William was still at 403 Georgia Street. By 1915, he was the managing director and secretary-treasurer of the Golden-Windermere Company Limited. Willam Pugsley (1850-1925), a New Brunswick lawyer and politician, was the president of the company.

This company proposed to reclaim a series of low lands along the Columbia River between Golden and Windermere. The First World War brought an end to the project.

In 1917, Amanda had a bakery at 800 Robson Street; she was living there, as well. In 1918 and 1919, she was living at 812 Robson Street; the bakery was still at 800 Robson Street.

In 1920, Amanda was still running the bakery at 800 Robson Street. She was living in North Vancouver at the corner of Maitland Avenue and Somerset Street.

By 1925, she had a bakery at 870 Howe Street, with a retail outlet at 800 Robson Street. She was living at 3680 West 15th Avenue in Vancouver.

Amanda continued to live in Vancouver through the 1920s and 1930s. By the late 1930s she was at 1807 West 36th Avenue.

Amanda died in Vancouver on November 27, 1942. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

William married Maude Allan. He lived in Ontario, where he carried on his work in the mining business. Among his other activities, he was the managing director of the West Tree Mine.

For a time, he lived at apartment 56, Parkview Mansions, 150 Fermanagh Avenue, Toronto.

William died in Toronto on November 8, 1931. He was buried in Park Lawn Cemetery in Toronto.

 

William and Amanda had the following children.

Horace Tuplin MacKay was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, on August 19, 1883.

In 1901, he was living in Swede Creek, Yukon Territory. He was working as a timekeeper.

He worked for a time as an inspector of fisheries.

It appears that he was married twice. The first marriage was to an unknown person, and it ended before 1924. The second marriage was on May 8, 1924, in Vancouver, to Nellie Grace Kessell, who had also been married before. She was born in Norwalk, Connecticut, about 1890. Her parents were Wilber E. Selleck and Emma Aube. This marriage appears to have ended in divorce.

Horace died in Vancouver on October 25, 1942. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

 

William David Mackay

William David Mackay was born in Kensington, Prince Edward Island, on July 9, 1886.

He worked as a land surveyor and civil engineer. For a time, he also operated a bakery in Edmonton, Alberta.

In 1918, he was living at 800 Robson Street in Vancouver.

On June 12, 1918, in Vancouver, he married Eleanor Daisy Cooper. She was born on December 13, 1888, in Sunderland, near Liverpool, England. Her father was Richard Storey Cooper. Her mother was Emily Jane Braim (or Brain).

David and Eleanor moved to Duncan, British Columbia. David died in Duncan on November 13, 1939. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Eleanor later moved to Victoria, British Columbia. She died in Victoria on August 27, 1976.
