“Thomas Maddison, Pioneer, Dies Here; Old-Time Resident Came to Vancouver From Durham, Eng., in 1888,” Vancouver Province, December 21, 1928, page 20 [includes photograph of Thomas Maddison]:

“Still another gap appears in the ranks of Vancouver’s old-timers with the passing, on Wednesday evening, of Mr. Thomas Maddison, of 428 Fifth avenue east, in his 88th year.

Coming to the Terminal City in 1888, two years after the great fire, from Durham, England, Mr. Maddison had resided here ever since. He was well-known in the city and his death is regretted by many friends among Vancouver’s pioneers. He was particularly well known in the angling fraternity who followed the sport on the Capilano River. From 1900 until 1912 he acted as caretaker of the old Capilano dam and his hospitality to followers of Izaak Walton who plied the rod on that stream was known far and wide. In the latter year Mr. Maddison suffered a stroke and has since lived in retirement with his daughter, Mrs. J. Saint of Fifth avenue.

He is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Saint, and Mrs. W. Harrison, of Fosterley, England; and two sons, Stephen, former water-works superintendent of Vancouver, and Frank, a submarine diver, of North Vancouver.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at the chapel of Armstrong & Hotson. Interment will take place at Mountain View Cemetery, Rev. O.M. Sanford officiating.”

“Steve Maddison Swept to Death,” Vancouver Province, September 2, 1940, page1:

“Ocean Falls, Sept. 2 – Stephen (“Steve”) Maddison of Vancouver, one of the best-known deepsea divers on the Pacific Coast, was swept to his death through a dam intake here Sunday afternoon.

Mr. Maddison, whose home was at 1603 Grant street, Vancouver, was being lowered into the water to make repairs on the intake, through which there was not supposed to be any flow of water at the time.

He was caught immediately in a powerful and unexpected suction which snapped his inch-and-a-quarter-thick lifeline like string and dragged him through the 18-inch intake pipe for a distance of 25 feet. After that the weight of his diving suit carried him down.”

“Diver Steve Maddison Loved Profession in Which He Died,” Vancouver Province, September 3, 1940, page 5:

“Stephen “Steve” Maddison, 69, of 1603 Grant, famed deepsea diver who was killed while diving at Ocean Falls Sunday afternoon, died “in harness,” the way he wanted to go when his time came.

For, although he was nearing 70 and was engaged in one of the most dangerous professions known to man, Maddison had no idea of retiring, according to his son, S. Ralph Maddison, 3959 West Eighteenth.

. . .

An inquest to investigate the tragedy will be held at Ocean Falls today by provincial police.

Mr. Maddison, who was born in England and came to Canada in 1890, worked below water on the laying of the first water main across First Narrows. He took up deep sea diving in 1908 after holding a post as assistant superintendent of Vancouver Water Works. Later he became superintendent.

He served overseas with the Royal Canadian Engineers in 1915, and after his return worked with his brother, Fred Maddison, also a famous diver.

Recently he watched his niece, Violet Maddison, employed in the auditor’s office of a department store, make her first underseas venture, walking along the floor of Coal Harbor beside her father, Fred.

Steve Maddison’s career was one of the most colorful on the Coast and included struggles with foul air and underseas creatures.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Center & Hanna.

Surviving are his son, S. Ralph Maddison; three daughters, Mrs. G.S. Lennie, Mrs. G.C. Kennedy and Mrs. Bruce McArthur; one brother, Fred, in Vancouver; one sister, Mrs. M. Harrison, Durham, England.”

Westminster Special; Sad Termination to a Christmas Dinner Party; Four Persons Crushed to Death by a Falling Tree on the North Arm Road—Sudden Death of a Pioneer,” Victoria Daily Colonist, December 27, 1889, page 1, column 7; http://archive.org/stream/dailycolonist18891227uvic/18891227#page/n0/mode/1up:

“New Westminster, Dec. 26.—At 3 o’clock this morning a party of Vancouver people, consisting of Jas. Lawson, well-known in that city; Miss Lawson, his daughter; A. Clarence Campbell, an employee of the Royal City Mills; J. V. Bodwell, Jasper Locke, and Wm. Masheter, left for home, having been the guests of W.H. Rolling, of the North Arm, at a dinner party given by him on Christmas day. The party were in a sleigh drawn by two horses, and had only proceeded down the North Arm road a short distance when a huge burning tree was espied ahead of them.

A burning branch falling with great noise startled the horses and they bounded forward underneath the tree itself, which at that moment fell, crushing the sleigh and instantly killing Lawson, Campbell, Bodwell and Locke. Miss Lawson escaped with a wound in the arm, while Masheter did not receive a scratch. One of the horses was killed outright and the other so badly wounded that it had to be shot later on. The cutter was smashed into a thousand pieces. Masheter went to Vancouver for assistance, and the bodies were removed to the North Arm., where they await interment. With the exception of Lawson, all the deceased were young men. The news of the sad affair cast a gloom over this city and the North Arm, all the parties being well-known. The bodies were crushed and mutilated almost beyond recognition. J.V. Bodwell was a cousin of Mr. E.V. Bodwell, of Victoria.”

“The North Arm Sleigh Accident,” Victoria Daily Colonist, December 28, 1889, page 4, column 3; http://archive.org/stream/dailycolonist18891228uvic/18891228#page/n3/mode/1up:

“On Thursday afternoon Dr. McGuigan, the coroner, held an inquest upon the body of James Lawson, one of the victims of the sad sleighing accident on the North Arm road on Christmas evening. From the evidence it appears that the tree which fell and crushed the life out of four persons so suddenly was set on fire by a Mr. James Saint, who was clearing his piece of land of about four acres, and who lived alone in a cabin near by. When the party arrived within a distance of about twenty yards opposite to where the tree stood, they heard it crack and saw it falling toward them. The night was dark, and the sudden and most natural of the driver was to whip the horses and make a dash—which he did, but the fatality of the impulse was terribly proved. Almost before it could be told, the huge tree, already burned away to a shell at the base, came crashing down and fell directly across the sleigh, killing instantly four of its occupants and one of the horses. The following was the verdict returned by the jury:

That James Lawson was killed by a burning tree falling on him; that the tree was set on fire by James Saint for the purpose of burning it down to clear his land and for the safety of his house; that the death was caused by accident; but the jury are strongly of opinion that burning down trees within reach of the highway should be strictly prohibited.”
