“A wedding of smart simplicity and of interest to a wide circle of friends throughout the province took place at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon in St. John’s church, Rev. Mackenzie officiating, when Miss Catherine Smith of this city was united in marriage to C.B. Macneill, K.C. The bride, who was unattended, was attired in a clever ensemble costume of rich blue junesque crepe combined with crepe of southern roses and hat en suite. Orchids, sweetheart roses and swansonia composed a colorful corsage bouquet.

Following an informal reception, Mr. and Mrs. Macneill left on the 4 o’clock train for an Eastern port, form where they will sail for an extended summer tour in Europe.”

“Chester B. Macneill, of 1164 Nanton avenue, one of Vancouver’s pioneer lawyers and past commodore of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, died Wednesday at the age of 81.

Funeral services will be held at 3:30 p.m. Friday in Center & Hanna Chapel, under auspices of Cascade Lodge, A.F. & A.M., of which he was past master. Rev. Canon Harold G. King will officiate and the remains will be cremated.

Mr. Macneill came to Vancouver in 1888 from Prince Edward Island and was an active member of the British Columbia bar for nearly 40 years.

He was an original member of the firm of Davis, Marshall and Macneill, a law association which continued throughout the years of Vancouver’s growth into a metropolitan city.

In the course of the years he was engaged in many outstanding cases, including litigation between the City of Vancouver and the C.P.R. in the early days, concerning the right to build ocean piers on the waterfront.

That the C.P.R. won the case probably dictated the trend of Vancouver’s growth as a world seaport.

Another interesting case in which Mr. Macneill was prominent involved Edna Wallace Hopper, then a Hollywood glamor girl, and the Dunsmuir estate. It went to the Privy Council with Mr. Macneill, the late E.P. Davis, K.C. and Lyman P. Duff (later Sir Lyman) among the counsel involved.

Mr. Macneill was an ardent yachtsman and in his younger days collected a roomful of trophies. He was commodore of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club in 1909 and 1910.

A keen angler, he loved to fish the trout streams of British Columbia and travelled to New Zealand and the orient at times to test the fishing.

He was an active member of Shaughnessy Golf Club for many years and is a past president of that organization.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth [sic]; a daughter, Vivian (Mrs. J.J. Hunter) of San Mateo and a son, Cyril A. Macneill of Seattle.”

“C.B. Macneill, Pioneer City Lawyer, Dead,” Vancouver Sun, March 5, 1942 (includes photograph of Chester Benjamin Macneill, K.C.); Vancouver Sun, March 5, 1942, page 17:

“A man who bore his 81 years as if they were 50 died Wednesday after a month’s illness. He was Chester Benjamin Macneill, K.C., resident of Vancouver for half a century.

He was a member of the pioneer law firm of Davis, Marshall, Macneill & Abbott. Mr. Davis was one of the great trial lawyers of his time in Canada; David Gordon Marshall was an outstanding commercial counsel; Jim Abbott (son of the first CPR general superintendent here) was an able counsel also, and Macneill, last of the four to pass on, was the office manager for the firm. John Pugh and Douglas Armour were his associates in the early-day firm which is headed today by D.N. Hossie.

Mr. Macneill, who resided at 1164 Nanton Avenue, was a striking figure, and until a recent illness, walked up Hastings Street as fast and as erect as anyone.

He spent his youth in Prince Edward Island, where he was born, and after graduating in the East, practised law there before coming west.

Mr. Macneill as a past commodore of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, a past master of Cascade Masonic Lodge and a past president of Shaughnessy Golf Club.

He leaves his wife; a daughter, Mrs. J.J. Hunter, in San Mateo, California; a son, Cyril, in Seattle, Wash., and several grandchildren.

His fellow-members of Cascade Masonic Lodge will conduct the funeral to be held Friday at 3:30 p.m. from Center & Hanna’s chapel.”

Mrs. Macneill was a native of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. She was a very old resident of Vancouver, having come here thirty-five years ago. Before her illness she was an active worker in the Women’s Auxiliary of the General Hospital, the Daughters of the Empire and other patriotic and social service organizations.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by one son, Mr. C.A. Macneill of 2735 Sixth avenue west, and one daughter, Mrs. J.J. Hunter of San Francisco. Mrs. A.H.B. Macgowan of Vancouver, and Mrs. W.B. Hughes and Miss Hayden of Vernon are sisters.”
