Henry Boyle Routledge was a machinist and mechanic. He lived at 1814 Georgia Street in 1919 and 1920. Mrs. A.R. Routledge was a stenographer who also lived at 1814 Georgia Street. She may have been Amy, who was Henry’s wife.

Henry Boyle Routledge was born in Liverpool, England, on February 6, 1889. His father was Henry Pemberton Routledge (1862-1921), who built and repaired bicycles. (The father and son sometimes went by the name “Harry.”) Henry Boyle Routledge’s mother was Catherine Smith (1866-after 1911).

In 1891, 1901 and 1911, Henry was living in England with his parents.

On August 22, 1915, in Vancouver, he married Amy Clarke. She was born in New Brighton, England, on March 24, 1889. Her parents were George Clarke and Elizabeth O’Malley (sometimes “Malley.”).

Henry first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1916. He was a foreman mechanic with Fred Deeley’s bicycle business. He was living at 5301 Dundee Street.

He lived at the following addresses in Vancouver.

1916 and 1917 5301 Dundee Street
1918 Unnumbered on Haro Street
1919 and 1920 1814 Georgia Street
1921 1149 Harwood Street
1922 1534 Beach Avenue
1923 4605 Marine Drive
1924 4667 Marine Drive
1925 7702 Heather Street
1926 to 1941 776 West 59th Avenue
1942 to 1948 1468 Alberni Street
1949 to 1967 4370 Stearman Street (or Avenue), Cypress Park
1968 and 1969 4370 Stearman Street (Amy Routledge)

During the early 1920s Henry was with B.C. Machinists. (Richard William Staveley Galbraith (1876-1965) was also associated with B.C. Machinists. He and his family moved to California in the 1920s; he later became a naturalized United States citizen, and it appears that he died in California in 1965.)

From the 1930s to 1949, Henry operated a bicycle repair and locksmith shop at 516 Howe Street. He later moved the business to 1340 Marine Drive in West Vancouver.

Amy was an accountant for Vancouver News Agencies.

Henry died in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on April 25, 1967.

Amy died in North Vancouver on April 17, 1969.

It appears that Henry and Amy did not have any children.
