On December 6, 1893, in Victoria, British Columbia, William married Kate (“Katie”) Pearce. She was born in Ipswich, England, on September 22, 1874. Her father was Frederick Pearce. Her mother was Mary Rainer. (One of Mary Rainer’s sisters was Theophila Turner Rainer (1840-1905), who was married to Alexander Alfred Green (1834-1891). Alexander and Theophila had a son named Alexander Rainer Green, who lived at 761 Denman Street from 1907 to 1915. Further information appears on the page for Alexander Rainer Green: https://westendvancouver.wordpress.com/biographies-a-m/biographies-g/green-alexander-rainer-1875-1930/.)

Kate had gone with her parents to live in Auckland, New Zealand. Her parents stayed in Auckland for about eight years before moving to Sydney, Australia.

In 1892, Kate travelled to Victoria, where she lived with her aunt Martha, who was married to Frederick Hammett Whorlock. Mr. Whorlock was the manager of Garesche, Green and Company’s Bank in Victoria.

William became a member of the Kamloops musical and athletic association.
