Peacock, Thomas Paddison (1880-after 1928)

Thomas Paddison Peacock was the manager of the Royal Bank in Vancouver. He lived at 1034 Gilford Street from 1920 to 1923.

Thomas Paddison Peacock was born in Hamilton, Ontario, on January 6, 1880. His father was Arthur Peacock, who was a butcher and cattle dealer. Thomas’s mother was Agnes Edworthy.

In 1891 and 1901, Thomas was living with his parents in Hamilton.

By 1909, he was the manager of the Traders’ Bank of Canada in North Bay, Ontario.

On March 18, 1909, in North Bay, Thomas married Dorothy Garnett Beanlands. She was born in Victoria, British Columbia, on May 27, 1886. Her father was Rev. Arthur John Beanlands (1857-1917), who was the canon in Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria.

Dorothy’s mother was Laura Maud Hills (1859-1903).

Dorothy was a kindergarten teacher in North Bay. While she was making tea on a spirit lamp, an overflow of alcohol from the lamp caught fire. She tried to smother the flames, but her clothing caught fire and she was seriously burned. Her father, Canon Beanlands, went to North Bay to see her. For a time, it appeared that she was recovering from the accident. Canon Beanlands married Thomas and Dorothy while he was in North Bay.

Dorothy’s condition grew worse, and by the end of May she was transferred to St. John’s Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. She died in Toronto on June 17, 1909. Her funeral was in Hamilton, Ontario.

By 1912, Thomas was living in Sudbury, Ontario.

On March 12, 1912, in Toronto, Thomas married Nina Sophia Barry. She was born in Toronto on August 27, 1878. Her father was Thomas Richard Barry. Her mother was Clara Coates.

In 1914, Thomas was the manager of the Royal Bank in Sudbury.

By 1917, it appears that Thomas was the manager of the Royal Bank in Hamilton, Ontario.

Thomas and Nina arrived in Vancouver in 1918. They lived at the following addresses in Vancouver.

1918 and 1919 1640 Harwood Street
1920 to 1923 1034 Gilford Street
1924 to 1925 1350 West 15th Avenue

Thomas did not appear in the Vancouver directories after 1925.

In 1928, Thomas and Nina were living in Hamilton, Ontario, when they sailed on the S.S. Albertic from Liverpool, England, to New York City.
