Reynolds, Frederick Black (1882-after 1924)

Frederick Black Reynolds was an advertising agent and broker. He lived at 1094 Denman Street in 1912.

It appears that Frederick Black Reynolds was born in Nova Scotia on November 22, 1882, although he sometimes said that he was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1882. His father was Frederick Harrington Reynolds (1846-1920), a merchant who sometimes ran a rooming house in Sydney, Nova Scotia, and in Vancouver. Frederick Harrington Reynolds was married to Jessie Black, who was born in Nova Scotia in January 1851.

Frederick Black Reynolds lived with his parents in Sydney, Nova Scotia, until at least 1901. He first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1907.

In the 1911 Canada census, Frederick was living at 1094 Denman Street, along with Florence, who was described as his wife. Both Frederick and Florence indicated that they were born in the United States.

However, it appears that Frederick and Florence Havering were not actually married at the time of the 1911 census in June 1911. Florence was still using her maiden name in November 1911 when she won a contest to name the new Coquitlam townsite.

Frederick and Florence did go through a marriage ceremony in Bellingham, Washington, on November 18, 1912. Florence said that she was born in Louisiana about 1882. Her father was James D. Havering. Her mother was Josephine Gauverau.

Through the 1920s, Frederick usually described himself as an advertising agent or real estate broker.

It appears that he spent a short time in prison in New Westminster, since that was his location in the 1921 Canada census.

From 1922 to 1924, he was again an advertising agent in Vancouver. He did not appear in the Vancouver directories after 1924.

No further information is available for Frederick or Florence.
