Orde, William Roden (1867-1948)

William Roden Orde operated a restaurant at 1873 Georgia Street from 1912 to 1914. He lived at 1997 Georgia Street in 1911 and at 1974 Georgia Street in 1912 and 1913.

William Roden Orde was born on February 2, 1867, in Downham, Norfolk, England. His father was Rev. William Jocelyn Shafto Orde (1837-1871). His mother was Annie Bell Ackroyd.

In 1881, William was a student. He was living in Richmond, Yorkshire, with his uncle, Henry Polett Shafto-Orde.

In 1891, William married Gertrude Maud Paulina Stephenson. She was born on January 3, 1867, in Bandon, Ireland. Her father was John Stephenson. Her mother was Victoria Beamish.

William and Gertrude arrived in Canada about 1910. William first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1911 (under the name Roden Orde”).
