Clarence Mawson Marpole was a coal and commission merchant. He lived at 1050 Gilford Street from 1906 to 1912. (His brother, Dalton, lived briefly at 1050 Gilford Street in 1904, although he did not appear at that address in the Vancouver directories.)

 

Family Background

Clarence Mawson Marpole was born in Barrie, Ontario on March 4, 1878. His parents were Richard Marpole (1850-1920) and Emmeline Roach (1854-1933). Richard Marpole was an executive with the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Richard Marpole was the general superintendent with the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Pacific Division in Vancouver. He was born on October 8, 1850 in Montgomeryshire, Wales (probably in Llanidloes). His parents were Richard Marpole and Eleanor Evans.

It appears that Richard Marpole, Senior went to live in Illinois, and that he died in Farmer City, Illinois on August 25, 1885.

One source refers to Richard Marpole, Junior as “Richard Mawson Marpole,” but few, if any, original documents or other references include “Mawson” as his middle name. In 1863, Richard’s sister, Elizabeth, married Charles Loftus Mawson, who died in 1872, so that is one possible source for the Mawson name in the Marpole family.

Marriage and Travel to Canada

In late June or early July in 1872, in Llanidloes, Richard married Emmeline Roach. She was born in Cornwall, England on April 19, 1854. It appears that her parents were James Roach and Esther Johns Penberthy. James Roach was a mine agent at Bryntail, about two kilometres northwest of Llanidloes.

Shortly after the wedding, Richard and Emmeline went to Canada.

Marpole is to succeed H. Abbott as general superintendent of the Pacific Division of the C.P.R. on June 1st [1897] prox. It is understood that the appointment of two general managers of the road is under consideration. For these positions the men spoken of are Tait of Montreal, for the eastern division, and White of Winnipeg for the western division. The removal of the dispatchers at the Kamloops office has been postponed. The office of assistant superintendent now held by Mr. Marpole [at Donald] will of course move to Vancouver. Whilst citizens of Kamloops will learn with pleasure of Mr. Marpole’s advancement to a position he is eminently well titled to fill, general regret will be felt that this change will necessitate his and Mrs. Marpole’s departure from the city of Kamloops.

Dalton Penberthy Marpole (brother of Clarence Mawson Marpole)

Dalton Penberthy Marpole: Birth: 05 Jan 1880 in Barrie, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada; Death: 29 Jan 1908 in Dot, Nicola Valley, British Columbia (ancestry.ca).

KnowBC.com; Dot, by Andrew Scott; http://knowbc.com/limited/Books/Encyclopedia-of-BC/D/Dot: “Dot, 26 km northwest of Merritt on the Nicola R, was a flag station on the Kettle Valley Rwy. Dot was the nickname of Dalton P. Marpole, a local property owner; his father, Richard Marpole, had served as manager of CPR operations in BC.”

Dot – 22 Mile Ranch PR13, Geocaching, https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC4E1GK_dot-22-mile-ranch-pr13?guid=fe4ce7d5-5f16-4117-9385-9c9e1bde99d0: “Honour Dalton (Dot) P. Marpole who owned the ranch, died in a tragic barn [sic] fire on Jan. 29, 1908. Dot was the son of Richard Marpole the general superintendent of the CPR railway. There was a post office established at Dot on Mar 1, 1009 and closed on Sept. 6, 1947.”

“City Limits,” Vancouver Sun, February 10, 2000, page B2, column 2:

Dotcom:

It’s not there anymore, says Mac, but “Dot” was a pretty small place on the Nicola Valley highway and CPR line between Merritt and Spences Bridge. It vanished from B.C. maps some time after 1960, the years in which he got a flat tire there—twice. The book B.C. Place Names has this to say about it: ‘DOT, Nicola Valley (C-9). This little station was given the nickname of Dalton P. Marpole, who owned land nearby. This Marpole was the son of Richard Marpole, formerly B.C. general superintendent of the CPR.’ . . ..”

It is reported that interment will take place beside the grave of another son of Mr. R.

The large, three panelled window is an original, which is in the 1888 section of the sanctuary. All the other windows are post 1924, installed after the sanctuary was moved to Nicola Street and additions made. This is the original 1888 window, the Faith, Hope & Charity Window, in the east end of the sanctuary. It was dedicated, in part, to the memory of Dalton and Harry Marpole.”

Shirley Joy Cotter, Nov 10, 2015 Obituaries; Quesnel Cariboo Observer; https://www.quesnelobserver.com/obituaries/SHIRLEY-JOY-COTTER/

“Life was way too short for Mom! Shirley passed away peacefully in Quesnel at age 92, leaving behind family and friends who will be eternally grateful for the mark she made. Predeceased by her husband, Chester Cotter, 1996, and sister Garda Johnstone, 2014, she will be missed by her children Rick Cotter, Joel (Kate), Jan (Michael) Kidston, Doug (Ashley), 11 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren. We’ll see you later Gramma!

Shirley moved from Calgary to Vancouver after her father Chester Elliott passed away at a young age. Vancouver was the place of long lasting friendships, interests in vintage cars, music and animals. As part of the War effort she packed parachutes, and riveted Warbirds at YVR. Chester and Shirley were married in 1951, and moved to paradise in Bachelor Bay near Whytecliff Park.

She loved the romance of the Cariboo, so moving to Quesnel in 1966 with Chester’s work suited her perfectly. Shirley was involved in and believed in the Quesnel Community. She loved the people, the four seasoned country, travel, pottery and painting, singing with Sweet Adelines, and shopping for Seniors, and of course this great place for kids to grow up. Frequent visits to the Green Lake cabin were a necessity of life.

Home was for family, entertaining and culinary delights, but home was for Shirley’s animal friends as well. She truly loved animals and this was passed on. Thanks Mom! Donkeys, dogs, mules and horses, peacocks, bees, cats and more; you name it, they were all welcome.

Shirley loved adventure, going down the unknown road. She could have been anything, but she was something else!

A memorial service for Shirley will take place on Tuesday, December 8th at 1 pm. At Clayton’s Funeral Chapel in Quesnel. A reception tea will follow at the Anglican Church Hall.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honour Shirley’s memory by way of donation may do so to the Quesnel Community Foundation: quesnelfoundation.ca, or to the Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge Society: turtlevalleydonkeyrefuge.com.”
