Family Background

Alfred Edwin Plummer was born in Strongford, County Down, Ireland, on June 3, 1854. His parents were William Plummer (1819-1890) and Mary Elizabeth Williams (1819-1903) (often called “Elizabeth”).

From 1868 to 1873, William Plummer was Northern Superintendent for the Indian Affairs. He was later a Commissioner of Indian Lands and Timber.

It appears that Elizabeth died in 1884.

After William retired in 1887, he moved to New York.

William died in 1890.

Alfred’s Career in Toronto

Alfred attended Upper Canada College in Toronto.

In 1874 he began working for the Federal Bank of Canada. About 1884 he became the bank’s inspector.

On November 2, 1887, in Toronto, he married Alice Ethel Fane Becher. She was born in London, Ontario, on October 23, 1857. Her parents were Henry Corry Rowley Becher (1817-1885), a lawyer and politician, and Sarah Evanson Leonard (1824-1864).

The Federal Bank of Canada ceased operating in 1888. In 1889, Alfred became the general manager of the Trusts Corporation of Ontario.

About 1897, Alfred built a house at 67 Lowther Avenue in Toronto. Eden Smith (1858-1949) was the architect.

In 1898 Alfred appeared in Canadian Men and Women of the Time, a prominent biographical dictionary.

In 1899, the Ontario government passed legislation that amalgamated the Trusts Corporation of Ontario with the Toronto General Trusts Company. Alfred became the assistant manager of the Toronto General Trusts Company.

 

 

By 1902, Alfred was the “former manager” of the Toronto General Trusts Company.

Dominion Trust Company

In 1912 Alfred was the manager of the Victoria branch of the Dominion Trust Company, Limited.

 

Dominion Trust Company Advertisement, Henderson’s British Columbia Gazetteer and Directory for 1910, page 16; [detail].

Dominion Trust Company Advertisement, Henderson’s British Columbia Gazetteer and Directory for 1910, page 16; [detail].

The British Columbia government had originally created the Dominion Trust Company Limited by letters patent. In 1908, the province passed a statute that extended the company’s powers.

The federal Parliament later incorporated the Dominion Trust Company (without the word “Limited” in its title), which took over the role of the former provincially-created company.

The federal company had the authority to acquire the shares and other property of the Dominion Trust Company, Limited.

By 1913 Alfred had become the manager of the trust department at Dominion Trust.

At first, the Dominion Trust Company was a respectable organization that attracted significant investments and other business. In 1914, the managing director of the company was William Robert Arnold (often called “W.R. Arnold”).

In 1914, Alfred and Alice appeared in the Vancouver society directory.

 

Vancouver Social Register and Club Directory, 1914, page 55.

Vancouver Social Register and Club Directory, 1914, page 55.

 

However, a government inspector arrived to investigate the affairs of the Dominion Trust Company, and it became clear that the company was in difficulty. Dominion Trust had a large portfolio of loans to customers who had used real estate as security. British Columbia, like many parts of the world, was in a recession, and the value of real estate had dropped, causing pressure on Dominion Trust. Even worse, Mr. Arnold had been embezzling from the company.

On October 12, 1914, Mr. Arnold died at his home as a result of a gunshot wound. He had several life insurance policies, but they each said that the insurance companies did not have to pay if the insured person caused their own death within two years from the date of the policy.

Although some initial reports suggested that Mr. Arnold’s death was an accident, a series of court cases had to consider the question in more detail. Finally, the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council concluded in 1918 that Mr. Arnold had shot himself deliberately. As a result, the insurance companies were not liable to pay Mr. Arnold’s executor under the insurance policies.

 

Alfred’s Role as Inspector in the Dominion Trust Company’s Liquidation

In late October 1914, one of the creditors filed a petition under the Winding-up Act to wind up the company and pay its creditors.

 

The Ottawa Journal, October 28, 1914, page 13, column 2.

The Ottawa Journal, October 28, 1914, page 13, column 2.

 

In 1915, Alfred became the manager of the Vancouver branch of the Prudential Trust Company Limited.

In June 1915, he appeared on the short list of nine potential inspectors of the liquidation.

 

Vancouver Daily World, June 1, 1915, page 14, column 3.

Vancouver Daily World, June 1, 1915, page 14, column 3.

 

Later, some of Alfred’s clients at Prudential Trust were about to make claims against Dominion Trust, which would have put Alfred in a conflict of interest. In August 1917 he resigned his inspector’s position.

He later became a financial agent, with offices on the 10th floor of the Dominion Building.

By 1926, Alfred was retired. He and Alice sailed from Canada to England.
