He was later in the real estate business with a variety of partners.

By 1912 he had become a member of the British Columbia bar.

He often acted for the federal government. In one of his cases, the provincial government had given a licence to Ritchie Contracting Supply Company Ltd. to take sand from the foreshore at Spanish Banks, which is part of English Bay. The federal government claimed that English Bay was a federal harbour. In 1913, Robert’s firm was acting for the federal government, which sued Ritchie Contracting for trespass.

Vancouver Daily World, September 11, 1913, page 19, column 5 [selected portion of article].

After a trial and three levels of appeal, the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council concluded in 1919 that English Bay was not a public harbour. (The federal and provincial governments later resolved some of the issues with the 1924 Six Harbours Agreement. Further details of this case appear in the notes section, below.)

In December 1917, a “jitney” (unlicensed taxi) struck Robert when he was crossing the road near Denman Street and Haro Street. Although his injuries were significant, he later recovered.

The Durham Chronicle, Thursday, November 26, 1908.

OBITUARY

Mrs. Mary Mighton was born in the county of Sligo, in Ireland, in April, 1827, and was the eldest daughter of twelve children of Robt. and Jane Walker. Her parents emigrated to Canada in the summer of 1829 and settled in the town of Smith’s Falls. In the summer of 1832 they moved to the township of Kitley in the county of Leeds, where they remained a number of years. In the year of 1847 she was united in marriage to Mr. John R. Maitland. They resided there until 1856 when they moved to Brussels and in 1866 to Durham, where she has since resided. In July, 1873, Mr. Maitland died, leaving seven children, five of whom are still living. In 1885 she was married to the late George Mighton, who predeceased her seven years ago. Since that Mrs. Mighton has spent most of her time with her daughters, but yet always enjoyed the quiet side of her own home. During the many years of her life Mrs. Mighton lived a consistent member of the Methodist church, and died at the ripe old age of 81 years, rejoicing in the hope of a happy life beyond. She was stricken with paralysis at the home of her daughter in Appin, and after only three weeks of patient waiting to pass beyond the tide, the call came on November 12th, and she departed this life. Her body was brought to the old home in Durham, where the funeral was held from the Methodist church on Saturday, November 14th. The surviving members of her family are Mrs. MacFie, of Appin; Mrs. Watson, of Varney; Mrs. Cook, of Markdale; Mrs. Bliss of Chicago, and R. R. Maitland, of Vancouver.

There is no Death; What seems so is transition; This life of mortal breath.

Durham Review, November 19, 1908.

MRS. MIGHTON

The intimation in a recent issue of the serious illness of this lady has been followed by her death at the home of her daughter Mrs. Jas. McPhee (MacFie), Appin, Ont., on Thursday last. Three weeks before she suffered a stroke of paralysis from which for about two weeks she seemed to rally but a relapse set in and the end came as above. The remains were brought to Durham on Friday and on Saturday, from her old home on West Lambton St., the funeral took place, the company first going to the Methodist Church where an appropriate service was conducted by her pastor, Rev. Mr. Jamieson. Deceased was a member of the well-known Walker family, two, if not three of her brothers being Methodist clergymen in the pioneer days. She outlived them all, dying at the patriarchal age of 82. Her first husband was a Mr. Maitland, who predeceased her over 30 years. To them were born one son and six daughters of whom two are gone, Sophia (Mrs. Raymond) and Emma. The son is the Rev. Robert Maitland, for many years prominent in Methodist circles in Brit. Columbia, the daughters are Mrs. Jas Watson, Normanby, Mrs. Thos Cook, Markdale, Mrs. McPhee (MacFie), Appin, and Mrs. Bliss, Detroit. Three of her daughters ministered to her dying hours and all were at the funeral. Her second husband, Mr. Mighton, died a few years ago. Deceased was a woman of exemplary piety, of forceful character, and of untiring devotion to her family left so early to her care. She was a faithful member of the Methodist Church, and adorned its teachings by a consistent walk and conversation. To her, death had no terrors and she passed away as she had lived in full confidence of a glorious resurrection, and leaving a memory that will be cherished.9

On 16 Sep 1847 when Mary Ann was 20, she first married John Richard Maitland, son of John Maitland & Elizabeth Ann Beek, in Kitley Twp, Leeds Co., Ont. Born on 26 May 1822 in Bandon, Co. Cork, Ireland. John Richard died in Durham, Bentinck twp, Grey Co., Ont. Canada, on 20 Jul 1873; he was 51.

1851 Census: farmer in Oxford twp, Grenville Co., Canada West

1861 Census: teaming in Morris twp, Huron Co., Ont.

1871 Census: teamster in Bentinck twp, Grey Co., Ont.

1873 death registration listed as carpenter, died of Dispepsia.

Outside of the Census records very little is written about him. It would seem that for the most of the first ten years of his life his father was not present, John Richard being in Ireland with his mother and his father being across the Atlantic in the colonies. When the family reunited in Lower and Upper Canada about 1829 to 1831 his father must have seemed like a stranger to John Richard. John Richard’s first sibling, a brother James, was born in 1832. The rest of the siblings followed but the family continued to move around because his father was a lay saddle back preacher who moved from region to region. One of his sisters, Elissa Jane, may have been born in New Brunswick, the home of his mother’s Beek family. This nomadic life was probably a challenge to John Richard and his much younger siblings. In a letter written in 1846 by John Richard’s father, John (Jr.) to John Richard’s grandfather, John (Sr.), John Jr. lamented to John Sr. that he had lost contact with his two sons, John Richard and James, but he figured they were in the Perth area (Lanark County). John Richard married Mary Ann Walker on Sept. 17, 1847 in Kitley Township. Following their marriage, John Richard and Mary Ann seem to follow Mary Ann’s parents and siblings to Huron County. John Richard’s parents and siblings, minus James and Emily, moved around Eastern Ontario where the mother, Eliza Ann Beek Maitland, died. The Maitland family had spent some time in London, Middlesex County from 1850 to 1862 because two of John Richard’s siblings, Catherine Beek Maitland and Joseph Beek Maitland were married in London, Middlesex County. John Richard and Mary Ann continued to follow the Walker family from Morris Township, Huron County to Durham, Grey County. It was here in Durham on July 22, 1873 that John Richard died. From before 1846 until long after his death there is no paper trail of contact between John Richard, his wife, son and daughters with his father or sisters. However his daughters, Jane Ann, Mary Elizabeth and Margaret Maria were very aware of their Maitland heritage. Mary Elizabeth Maitland Watson’s son, John Wilfrid, returned to the Maitland ancestral surroundings in Eastern Ontario in abt 1906 on his honeymoon. Two factual family histories of John Richard’s ancestors including his parents, John Maitland and Eliza Ann Beek and grandparents were wrtten by a nephew, Charles Maitland Moore, and a grandson, Charles MacFie.

They had the following children:

15 i. Jane Ann (1848-1941)

16 ii. Mary Elizabeth (1850-1918)

17 iii. Margaret Maria (1852-1930)

18 iv. Robert Reid (1855-1921)

19 v. Catherine Sophia (1858-1892)

20 vi. Emma Selina (1860-1890)

21 vii. Sarah Harriet (1863-1946)

Mary Ann second married George Mighton.

Ritchie Contracting Supply Company (Spanish Banks case)

The case started when the Province of British Columbia gave Ritchie Contracting Supply Company a licence to remove sand from the foreshore at Spanish Banks, which is part of English Bay. The federal government claimed that English Bay was part of Vancouver harbour, and that the province did not have the authority to deal with the Spanish Banks foreshore.

Section 108 of the Constitution Act, 1867, said that provincial public harbours before Confederation would become the property of the federal government.

  1. The Public Works and Property of each Province, enumerated in the Third Schedule to this Act, shall be the Property of Canada.

The Third Schedule: Provincial Public Works and Property to be the Property of Canada: 2. Public Harbours.https://www.canlii.org/en/ca/laws/stat/30—31-vict-c-3/latest/30—31-vict-c-3.html.

This case eventually went to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, which was then the highest court for Canadian cases. In 1919, the Judicial Committee concluded that English Bay was not a public harbour. Attorney-General for Canada v. Ritchie Contracting and Supply Co., 52 SCR 78, 1915 CanLII 28 (SCC); https://www.canlii.org/en/ca/scc/doc/1915/1915canlii28/1915canlii28.html. Atty-Gen’L for Canada v.

In 1924, British Columbia and the federal government made the “Six Harbours Agreement,” in which the governments agreed that six harbours were “public harbours”: Victoria, Esquimalt, Nanaimo, Alberni, Burrard Inlet, and New Westminster.
