Frederick James Procter was an insurance agent and financial broker. His address in the Vancouver directories was 1846 Haro Street from 1910 to 1917, although it is likely that he was actually no longer alive by the end of 1916.

Frederick James Procter was born in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England, on May 18, 1863. His father was Charles Edward Procter (1834-1873), who was a solicitor in Macclesfield. Frederick’s mother was Ellen Livesey (about 1837-1882), of Fairfield, West Derby, Liverpool.

Frederick  was educated at Birkenhead School (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birkenhead_Schoolhttp://www.birkenheadschool.co.uk/school-history) in Oxton, England. He came to British Columbia about 1894. By 1898, he was living at 1113 Nelson Street.

On October 13, 1898, in Vancouver, he married Eva May Davy. She was born on September 6, 1868, in Auckland, New Zealand. Her father was Edwin Davy; her mother was Anna Maria Smart. Eva’s brother was Edwin (“Ned”) Davy (1850-1935), a famous New Zealand sportsman.

About 1900, Frederick wrote an article called “The Financial Crisis in British Columbia,” which reviewed British Columbia’s income and expenses. He concluded that the province needed to secure more revenues from the federal government. In 1909, the family moved to 1846 Haro Street.

By 1911, he was a member of the local board of London & British North America Co. (formerly Mahon, McFarland & Procter, Ltd.: Edward Mahon, Joseph Walter McFarland, and Frederick James Procter).

He was a member of the Vancouver Club, the Jericho Country Club and the Victoria Golf Club.

In 1916, he became despondent because of his failing real estate investments, and he was not able to sleep. On the morning of November 2, 1916, he left his house, intending to return for lunch, but he didn’t return, and he didn’t telephone. One of his friends saw him about 3:00 that afternoon on Hastings Street, going to his office in the Credit Foncier Building. Nobody had seen him since then.

His family put notices in the newspapers, and offered a reward for information. Some people reported that they had seen him in Vancouver and in New Westminster; it appeared that he had lost his memory.

Frederick’s brother, Robert, searched and enquired extensively to find a trace of what had become of Frederick. Another brother, Arthur, who was a doctor, contacted hospitals all over western North America to see if he could locate any useful information. Robert and Arthur were unsuccessful in their searches.

On May 31, 1918, the BC Supreme Court appointed Edward Mahon as the curator of Frederick Procter’s estate. In September 1918, the BC Supreme Court issued an order to deal with some stock certificates that Frederick Procter had filed with a bank as collateral for a loan. Frederick did have a wide range of property, but he owed a lot of money to a variety of people. The net value was just over $2000, which was still a substantial amount then, but it was much lower than it had been just a few years earlier.

Eventually, the court ordered that Frederick was presumed to have died sometime between November 3, 1916, and November 3, 1923, and the net estate went to Eva.

Eva started to resume a normal sort of life, but she never re-married. She lived until the age of 96; she died on July 9, 1965, in White Rock, British Columbia.

  2. Wow. Thank you for all of this. Frederick’s brother is my great-great grandfather and I’ve heard of his relatives but have not been able to form them into a functional family tree. This is awesome! There is a street in West Vancouver named after Robert; Procter Avenue.

    • Hello Kailyn,

      I’m glad that this is helpful. Thank you for pointing out the connection between Robert Procter and Procter Avenue in West Vancouver.

      Robert
