Page, David Farquhar Graham (1875-1932)

David Farquhar Graham Page was a department manager for Ceperley Rounsefell and Company. He lived at 1993 Beach Avenue from 1912 to 1914.

He was born in 1875 in Kendal, Westmoreland, England, the oldest of seven children. He was often called “Farquhar Page,” possibly to distinguish him from his father, who was also called David Page.

 

Farquhar’s parents

Farquhar’s grandfather was yet another David Page (1814-1879). He was a professor of geology and mineralogy at the University of Durham.

Farquhar’s father, David Page (1846-1890), was a brilliant student. He became a physician and medical officer of health for Westmoreland. He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Farquhar’s mother was Mary Rauthmell (about 1848-1878), who was the daughter of John Rauthmell, of Brook House, Holme, Norfolk. David and Mary had three sons: Farquhar, Henry Ruthmell Page (1876-1916), and William Walter Keightley Page (1878-1962), who was a lawyer. Mary died in Kendal in 1878.

After Mary’s death, David Page married Caroline Braithwaite, with whom he had four more children: Mary Caroline Angella Page, Sybil Dorothea Page, Olivia Braithwaite Grizel Page and George Foster Braithwaite Page.

David Page died in Dublin, Ireland, on February 20, 1890.

David’s second wife, Caroline, died on July 31, 1945, in Shipton Gorge, Dorset.

 

Farquhar Page

It appears that Farquhar was living at 5 Devonport Street in West London in 1899 and 1900.

In 1901, Farquhar was living in Paddington, London. He was working as a stock jobber.

On March 11, 1905, in Bloomsbury, London, Farquhar married Sarah Jane Butterfield (sometimes called “Sally.”) It appears that she was born in Whitehaven, Cumberland, about 1881, and that her parents were Stephen Butterfield and Jane Whiteside.

Farquhar came to Canada on the Empress of Ireland in December 1910, stopping at Saint John, New Brunswick. He described himself as an accountant, and he gave his destination as Victoria, British Columbia.

He appeared in the Vancouver directories from 1912 to 1914. He was a department manager for Ceperley Rounsefell and Company.

Farquhar’s wife, Sally, was an accomplished golfer. In May 1914, she won a Vancouver Country and Golf Club’s women’s golfing event.

It appears that Farquhar went back to England sometime during the First World War. In 1916, Farquhar’s brother Harry Rauthmell Page enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force. His next-of-kin was Farquhar, whose address at was Brough Fold, Natland, near Kendal, Westmoreland. (This was also the home of Caroline Page, Farquhar’s step-mother.)

By 1917, Farquhar was employed as an interpreter, and he was a temporary second lieutenant in the British military.

After the war, Sally was the proprietor of a private hotel, at first with her mother, Jane Butterfield, and on her own starting in March 1923.

It appears that Farquhar continued to live in England after the war. He died on September 21, 1932, in Middlesex.

For myself personally, this has been no ordinary loss. To Dr. Page I owe my introduction to the fascinating study of geology. With several other students of Edinburgh University, I attended his geological class at No. 44 Gilmore Place, where he resided, during the University summer session of 1866. His lectures were at once graphic and concise; his systematic mind permitted no chaos; everything was lucid and well arranged. I need only refer to his admirable series of geological text-books, which have long held a foremost place in the geological instruction of British youth, to prove how captivating and how clear geology could be made in his master-hands. . . .”

“David Page, M.D. Edin.

Few recent occurrences have created a greater sensation in the medical circles of Edinburgh than the unexpected death of Dr. David Page, by which event the University has lost one of its most distinguished graduates, and a very valuable examiner. Dr. Page died in Dublin on 17th February from tumour of the brain, a diagnosis confirmed by post-mortem examination.

David was the elder son of Dr. Page, F.B.G.S., whose geological writings are well known, and who was Professor of Geology in the College of Physical Science, Newcastle-on-Tyne. He was born in Edinburgh, educated partly at the Madras College, St Andrews, and at the famous Old High School of Edinburgh, from which he passed to the University. After his humanitarian studies he devoted himself to Chemistry under Sir Lyon Playfair, the result of his work there being that he gained the Hope Prize in Chemistry in 1870. He went on with the study of Medicine, taking the Degrees of M.B. and CM. in 1870 with First Class Honours, and gaining the Ettles Scholarship as the most distinguished graduate of his year. His title to this distinction was unequivocal, for he accomplished the unprecedented, we believe, unique feat of getting the high mark of B in every one of his subjects of examination, written and oral, from Chemistry and Botany to Clinical Medicine and Surgery. He went on to his Doctorate in 1873, on which occasion he gained one of the University Gold Medals for his thesis on the Value of certain Signs in cases of Death by Suffocation, and on Death by Haemorrhage in the New-born. He engaged in medical practice for a while in Kirby Lonsdale, but soon afterwards removed to Kendal on his receiving the appointment of Medical Officer of Health for the combined districts of the County of Westmoreland. The excellent work which he did in this capacity attracted the notice of the Sanitary Authorities at headquarters, and he was therefore appointed one of the Medical Inspectors of the Local Government Board, his district being the Northern Counties of England. For convenience in discharge of this duty he removed to Lancaster, which was his residence up to the time of his death. His reports to the Local Government Board were models in the way of fulness of investigation and clearness of statement. He wrote valuable papers on the subjects of the water supply of the country and rivers’ pollution, and on fevers. David Page, however, was not a mere hygienist, he had had enough of experience in his profession to make him a good, practical man, and he was an honorary member of the Clinical Society of Newcastle-on-Tyne, before which he read, about two years ago, a very interesting paper on the much neglected subject of the subsoil of towns.

Dr Page’s thorough acquaintance with medical jurisprudence and hygiene readily pointed him out as a most suitable Assessor Examiner on these subjects in the University of Edinburgh, of which he was so distinguished a graduate. He was appointed to this office in 1889, and his lamented death has created a vacancy which it will not be easy to fill. As an examiner he was most searching in his questions, by no means too easy to be satisfied, but at the same time showing a quiet manner and courtesy towards candidates which made him extremely popular with them, and has left an enduring impression in the School of Medicine.

Of his professional acquirements and distinction we have already spoken, but he was not merely a noted member of the medical profession and a scientist, he was a many-sided man otherwise.

Those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance found in him a genial friend brimful of good conversation, the flavour of which was enhanced by a spice of quiet humour. His literary tastes were excellent, a sample of which was given by him in an address on our National Poet, which he delivered at a Burns’ festival at Newcastle, which was so highly appreciated by his audience that they requested him to publish it. He loved the fine arts; he cultivated music, and was a good flute-player, a zealous Freemason, and a golfer. Like some other members of the medical profession who have devoted themselves to State Medicine, he entered on the study of law, was a member of the Middle Temple, and but for his state of health would have been called to the bar last spring.

The fatal disease, viewed in the light of its subsequent history, seems to have commenced about three years ago. About eighteen months ago he suffered from neuralgia of the jaw, on account of which he was operated on, with temporary relief, by Mr Page of Newcastle, and subsequently Sir Joseph Lister. He was at that time advised to take a holiday, and for this purpose interrupted his legal studies and other work by taking a trip to the Canaries. He returned home apparently in good health, and no one could have guessed when he was performing his duties at the University that there was or had been anything seriously wrong with him. There was, however, an access of decidedly cerebral symptoms about six weeks before his death. He saw his chief at the Local Government Board, Dr Buchanan, who advised him to consult Drs Ferrier and Hughlings Jackson, who diagnosed cerebral tumour. He was recommended to take six months’ leave of absence, and had gone to Dublin to make arrangements with a friend for a cruise in the Mediterranean. The day after his arrival, and when he appeared to be in good health and spirits, he was attacked by paralysis of the right lower extremity; this was followed by intense pain in the head; coma supervened, and he died on the 26th February at the age of 44.

Dr Page was twice married. He has left a widow and seven children to mourn his loss, and a whole profession to lament the premature cutting short of a life of great usefulness and much promise.”
