Ewen Wainwright MacLean was a businessman who lived at 1942 Alberni Street in 1919 and 1920. He lived in or near Vancouver for several periods from about 1890 until 1923. He seems to have spelled his surname as “McLean” in earlier times; later he used “MacLean.”

Ewen’s father was Hugh Alexander McLean, who was born in Scotland; Ewen’s mother was Sarah MacMillan, who was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Hugh and Sarah were married in Prince Edward Island, and then they went to Japan, where Hugh was superintendent of the lighthouse service for many years. Ewen was born at Nagasaki on September 17, 1863. Hugh died in Japan in 1875. Sarah died in San Francisco, California, on January 13, 1893.

After a private school education, Ewen went to St. Paul’s College in Hong Kong, where he graduated in 1876. He became fluent in Chinese, and sometimes acted as an interpreter.

About 1876, he went to San Francisco. In 1880, he was living with his mother in San Francisco.He became a naturalized American citizen on June 14, 1884.

In 1885, he bought out the owners of the Davis Manufacturing Company, and continued the business as E.W. McLean and Company.

The 1886 San Francisco directory showed him in business with William H. Cork.

In late 1886, Ewen sold his interest in the partnership to William A. Whaley.

Ewen stayed in San Francisco until about 1886, when he apparently went to Victoria and worked in the fur sealing business. However, fur sealing may not have been his main business at this time. Around the same period, there was a man named E.W. McLean who was associated with William A. Whaley and an infamous smuggling schooner called the Halcyon. There is no formal confirmation that this was the same person, but the dates and the names of the various associates do suggest a connection.

The Halcyon was involved in shipping opium to various places on the Pacific Ocean. At that time, opium itself was not illegal; however, customs officials were very diligent in pursuing the significant duties that opium shipments would generate. The shippers were equally interested in not paying duties, so that they could maintain their high levels of profits.

In 1889, Ewen married Ella Macwee Julian in Oakland, California. Ella, who was the daughter of John Wilson and Maria Van Ness, was born San Francisco, California, on January 7, 1867. Ella’s first marriage had been to Charles Otis Julian. Charles and Ella had a son, also named Charles Otis Julian (1883-1966).

By about 1890, Ewen had moved to Vancouver, at least on a part-time basis, and started a coal business. By about 1893, he was involved in real estate, loans, investments, and insurance.

He was also associated with the Richmond Oil Company, which was looking for oil in the Steveston area: http://bchistorical.blogspot.ca/2014/02/richmond-oil-company.html. The Thomas Davis who was associated with the drilling efforts may have been Ewen’s brother-in-law, although this is not confirmed.

In 1905, Ewen became president of the A.J. Burton Saw Company. Later he was part of several land development enterprises, and he was involved in planning the Second Narrows bridge in Vancouver.

Ewen was a life member of the Vancouver Exhibition Association and a shareholder in the Vancouver Horse Show. He also belonged to the Terminal City Club and the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.

Ewen was visiting in San Diego, California, when he died of heart disease on March 26, 1923.

After Ewen’s death, Ella lived at 1942 Alberni Street until 1941, when she moved to apartment no. 21 in Tudor Manor, 1311 Beach Avenue. Ella was still living in the Tudor Manor apartment when she died on January 23, 1952. She was buried in Ocean View Burial Park.

Ewen and Ella had four children.

Ewen Wainwright Maclean, Junior

Ewen Wainwright Maclean was born on September 13, 1890, in California. He was a motion picture sales distributor in Beverly Hills. He died on May 16, 1964, in Los Angeles, California.

Aileen Alexandra Jeanette Maclean

Aileen Alexandra Jeanette Maclean was born on November 4, 1894 in Victoria BC (or 1892 in San Francisco, California, according to some sources). She was often called Jean.

In 1915, Jean married Theodore Augustus Havemeyer, who was a member of the wealthy Havemeyer family, associated with the sugar industry in the eastern United States. Theodore (sometimes called “Teddy”) was born on January 25, 1893, in New York City.

Teddy’s father was Charles Frederick Havemeyer, who was born in 1867 in New York City; he was the eldest son of Theodore Augustus Havemeyer (Teddy’s grandfather). Charles was sometimes called “Carley” because of his inability to pronounce his own name when he was small.

On October 16, 1890, in Islip, Long Island, Carley married Camilla Woodward Moss, who was the daughter of Courtlandt Dixon Moss and Camilla Woodward. Miss Moss was not a member of the same fashionable set as the Havemeyers, but she was known as a great beauty, and she was a noted horsewoman.

On the evening of May 9, 1898, Carley was at his country home in Roslyn, Long Island, when he shot himself in the head; he did not survive. A coroner’s jury decided that the death was accidental.

Camilla Havemeyer went into mourning, and she stayed in seclusion until Teddy’s brother Charles was born on December 31, 1898.

On November 29, 1899, Camilla was married to Frederick Ogden Beach, who was well-connected in society, and was a friend of William K. Vanderbilt, Senior. Frederick Beach was often called “Beauty Beach,” presumably because of his good looks. Frederick and Camilla had two sons: Frederick Ogden Beach, born on August 20, 1900, and John A. Beach.

Camilla’s life took another strange turn. On February 26, 1912, Frederick Beach and Camilla were at their country place in Aiken, South Carolina. Camilla was attacked by an unknown man, who hit her with a club and slashed her throat with a knife. Camilla recovered after several months. To the surprise of New York society, the police charged Frederick Beach with  the “murderous assault.” After a dramatic trial, Frederick Beach won an acquittal; the crime remained unsolved.

Frederick Beach died on December 16, 1918, in New York City. Camilla died in November 1934, in New York City.

Teddy Havemeyer was originally engaged to Miss Vida Bisphan, a daughter of David Scull Bispham, a famous American opera singer, but the engagement was broken off in October 1912. Vida Bisphan later married Riccardo Alessandro Daddi-Berkherl, a banker who lived in Florence, Italy.

Teddy and Jean were married on August 11, 1915, at St. Paul’s Church in Vancouver. As expected, all of the Vancouver newspapers included an article about the wedding in their society columns; The New York Times also had a short article on the marriage.

Teddy was in the lumber business. The family seems to have spent much of their time at Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island, and Teddy appeared in the Vancouver directories only in 1915, 1916, 1918, 1924 and 1929.

Teddy became a naturalized Canadian on April 30, 1929.

In 1939, Teddy joined the Canadian army. A photograph of “L/Cpl T. A. Havemeyer” appeared in the Vancouver Sun, along with photographs of several other members of the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada. While serving with the Seaforths in England, Teddy died on April 7, 1941, apparently of a heart attack. He was buried at Brookwood Military Cemetery, near London.

Jean died in Kamloops, British Columbia, on August 15, 1979.

Gloria Camilla MacLean Havemeyer

Teddy and Jean had a daughter, Gloria Camilla MacLean Havemeyer, who was born on June 18, 1917.

Gloria first married Clive John Phillipps-Wolley in Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, New York. Gloria and Clive lived in Montreal in the late 1930s and early 1940s. They were still married when Teddy Havemeyer died in 1941.

Gloria later married Frederick Edgar Dey, who was a cattle rancher at the Noble Creek Ranch near Kamloops, BC.

Gloria died at the ranch on February 5, 1989. She was buried in Hillside Cemetery in Kamloops, BC.

Ruth MacLean

Ruth MacLean was born in Victoria on November 14, 1892 (or in the United States, and in 1894, according to some sources). She reported social events for Vancouver newspapers, and later became a lady-in-waiting to the wives of four of British Columbia’s lieutenant-governors from 1940 to 1960, when she retired. She never married, and she died in Vancouver on January 2, 1972.

Victor Alexander MacLean

Victor Alexander MacLean was born on May 14, 1894, in Victoria, BC. He served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War.

Victor was married on May 28, 1919, to Hazel Ellen Kelly. Hazel was the daughter of Robert Kelly (b. 1862; d. 1922), who was a founder of the Kelly Douglas Company, a large grocery operation in Vancouver. Hazel’s mother was Lillian Catherine Craig (b. 1867; d. 1952). (Robert Kelly lived at 1050 Chilco Street in 1903.)

Victor died in England, on November 1, 1940. He drowned after falling off or leaping from the promenade deck of a ship at Bootle, Lancashire. He was buried at Brookwood Cemetery in England, which is the same cemetery where Teddy Havemeyer was buried.

Hazel Ellen Kelly died in Vancouver on January 18, 1981.

Victor and Hazel had two children.

Robert Ewen MacLean

Robert (Bob) Ewen MacLean was born in Vancouver on August 19, 1920. He attended Upper Canada College in Toronto.

On January 21, 1938, he went for a drive on the north shore with three friends. Because of the thick snow, their car was not able to go any farther. The three friends decided to go back down the road to get tire chains for the car. Bob decided to walk from the car to the Grouse Mountain Chalet, but he never arrived. He died of apparent exhaustion and exposure.

Victor Frederick MacLean

Victor Frederick MacLean was born in Vancouver on April 28, 1924. He was a pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1942 to 1945. He joined Price, Waterhouse & Co. in 1945, and moved to Kelly Douglas in 1947. He became secretary and assistant treasurer in 1951,  director in 1952, and executive vice-president in 1953.

He was a life member of The Vancouver Club, Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, Shaughnessy Golf Club, and the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club, and he played golf and tennis well into his 80s. He died on January 11, 2013.

Victor was married to Patricia Joan Anderson. She was born in Vancouver on January 7, 1924.

Victor died on January 11, 2013.

Joan died on May 6, 2013.

Victor and Joan had four children: Dewey, Vicki, Robert and Mark.

Charles Otis Julian

Charles Otis Julian was the son of Ella Mcawee Wilson and her first husband, Charles Otis Julian. Charles Junior was born in Victoria, British Columbia on March 12, 1883. He was the manager of the R.C.A. Victor Company in Vancouver.

Charles married Veronica Marguerite Roach (also known as “Vera.”) Vera was born in Shanghai, China on June 27, 1907.

Charles died in Vancouver on January 19, 1966. He was buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Burnaby, BC. Vera died in Vancouver on February 6, 2010.

Charles and Vera had two children. Jacqueline Julian was still living when Vera died in 2010. Julian Charles Julian was born in early 1932. He died before 2010.

A lovely home portrait is this of Mrs. Charles Otis Julian of Shanghai and her adorable wee son, Julian Charles Julian, who celebrated his six months birthday Friday. Mrs. Julian and her baby arrived a fortnight ago from the Orient to spend the remainder of the summer here with Mr. Julian’s mother, Mrs. E.W. McLean and Miss Ruth McLean, at whose home on Alberni Street the above picture was photographed. The tiny subject is wearing the exquisite robe in which he was christened.
