[The Richards family was also associated with Roger Henry Carleton Green, who lived at 1919 Robson Street.]

By about 1897, Harry and Margaret had moved to their new house at the corner of Haro Street and Gilford Street. The house was called Horningtoft, after the Senkler family house in Brockville, Ontario. The Senkler ancestors had come to North America from Horningtoft, a small village in Norfolk, England.

Harry was a member of the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club, which had its courts at the corner of Barclay Street and Denman Street.

Harold Richards Senkler

Harold Richards Senkler was born in Vancouver on October 25, 1896. He became active in the lumber business. On March 2, 1920, in Vancouver, he married Thelma Eileen Dawson. She was born in Vancouver on February 1, 1899. Her father was Colin Thomas Dawson (1859-1941); Thelma’s mother was Sarah Edith Broadwell. Colin Dawson had been the operator of the Glasgow Hotel on Westminster Road (later Main Street).

By 1930, Harold and Thelma were living at 2820 Gilpin Street in Burnaby, British Columbia; Harold was a farmer. In 1940, he was a labourer at the Burrard Dry Dock. He later became a taxi operator.

Harold died in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on February 1, 1971.

John and Thelma’s son, John Harold (Harry) Senkler died in Vancouver on April 27, 1997.

Their daughter, Margaret, died on November 6, 1997, in Vernon, British Columbia.

Margaret Ellen (“Nell”) Senkler

Margaret Ellen (“Nell”) Senkler was born in Vancouver on October 1, 1898. She went to Bishop Strachan School, a day and boarding school for girls in Toronto, Ontario.

On September 22, 1920, in Vancouver, Nell married Davison Barrett Manley. He was born in Toronto, Ontario, on June 27, 1893. His father was Frederick Fitzpayne Manley (1852-1907), who had been a mathematics instructor and principal of the Jarvis Street Collegiate Institute in Toronto. Davison’s mother was Elizabeth Fisher (1859-1927); on March 24, 1909, in Toronto, Elizabeth married Vancouver’s mayor, Charles Stanford Douglas (1852-1917), who lived at 2033 Comox Street.

In 1924, Nell was a patroness for the Vancouver Amazons’ Ball. This was a dance to raise funds to support the Amazons, who were going to Banff, Alberta, to compete for the alpine Championship Ladies’ Hockey Cup.

By 1935, Davison was the building manager of the Vancouver Stock Exchange Building.

In 1937, Nell was elected captain of the women members of Jericho Golf and Country Club.

In 1939, Davison was charged with stealing 330 shares of Bralorne Mines Ltd. At his first trial on April 2, 1940, the jury was unable to reach a verdict. A week later, a second jury found him guilty, but recommended mercy. He appealed to the British Columbia Court of Appeal, which ordered a new trial. On September 9, 1940, he was acquitted.

It appears that Davison’s and Nell’s marriage ended, and Davison married Hanna Margaret Carroll. She was born on February 4, 1903, in Colville, Washington State. Her parents were George Francis Carroll and Elizabeth Jones.

Davison died in Penticton, British Columbia on May 20, 1972. Hannah died in North Vancouver, British Columbia, on February 22, 1985.

Canon Beanlands united in marriage Mr. John Harold Senkler, barrister-at-law, Vancouver, and Miss Margaret Hargrave Richards, youngest daughter of Hon. A.N. Richards, of this city. The church was prettily decorated with roses, poppies and flowering plants, and the scent was an impressive one as the officiating clergyman read the marriage service of the Anglican church. The bride wore a magnificent gown of cream satin trimmed with embroidered chiffon, and carried a choice bouquet of white roses. The bridesmaid, Miss Beaven, was dressed in white, trimmed with pink crepe-de-chene, and her bouquet was composed of cream marguerites. The groom was supported by his brother, E.D. Senkler, barrister-at-law, of Ontario. The bride was given away by her father, Hon. A.N. Richards.

At the close of the church ceremony Mendelssohn’s Wedding March was played, and as the party left the sacred edifice the chimes in the tower added their music to speed the happy couple on their way.

Later in the afternoon a choice wedding repast was served at the home of the bride’s father, where a number of the more intimate friends had gathered. Mrs. Senkler is well known in this city, where a large circle of friends will unite in best wishes for the happened of the newly wedded young people. Mr. Senkler is a prominent barrister in Vancouver, and is the son of Judge Senkler, of St. Catharines.

The list of presents was large and the gifts well chosen – a partial indication of the high esteem in which the contracting parties are held.

Mr. and Mrs. Senkler left for Portland last night by the City of Kingston, and after a protracted tour on the Coast will take up their residence in Vancouver.”

Judge Senkler was well known in Vancouver, and two of his sons, Mr. J.H. Senkler, of Messrs. Wilson & Senkler, and Dr. Ivan Senkler, reside in Vancouver. The eldest son, Mr. Eddie Senkler, is the well-known and popular gold commissioner of Dawson. Yesterday morning, critical news of the condition of Judge Senkler was received by the Messrs. Senkler, of this city, and in the afternoon the doctor left for Winnipeg, where his father was lying ill. Last night, Mr. J.H. Senkler received a telegram, stating that his father had passed away. He had been sick from an attack of bronchitis for several days although the possibility of a fatal termination to the illness was not thought of until yesterday morning. Judge Senkler had been for a couple of months before Christmas engaged on a government commission in the Northwest, the question at issue relating to the use of grain elevators and certain grievances of farmers in connection therewith. He went home to St. Catharines for the holidays, and was on his way west several days ago when he was stricken down at Winnipeg. The late Judge Senkler was born 65 years ago in Norfolk, England, and came to Canada when a boy of only eight years. His people settled in Quebec and subsequently removed to Brockville where the family lived for years until Mr. Senkler was appointed county judge for Lincoln at which time he moved to St. Catharines where he has since resided. Mrs. Senkler, who is still living at St. Catharines, was with her husband on a visit he paid to Vancouver a couple of years ago. The judge at that time had come west on a holiday trip, and stayed a couple of months with his son in this city. He had many eastern friends here, and everywhere he went was a great favourite. He frequently attended court proceedings here as a visitor, and on several occasions took a seat on the bench with the presiding judge.”

James A. Fennell, death notice, Vernon Morning Star, http://www.vernonmorningstar.com/mobile/obits/?id=775679: “James A. (Joe) Fennell, born January 1921, left us on December 28, 2005, to be reunited with his wife, Margaret, who died in 1997. Joe is also predeceased by his sister Peggy, brother Bob, and both parents. Joe leaves behind his daughters, Kathy Williamson of Coldstream and Patty Fennell of Victoria; grandaughters Patricia of Lytton and Jaime of Victoria, as well as great-granddaughters Jessy Marie and McKeana of Lytton. He is also survived by sister Margaret (Jock) Purdy, and brothers George and Ken in Ontario, Jack (Shirley) of Vancouver, sister-in-law Margaret Lynne Senkler of West Vancouver, nieces, nephews and extended family members, Peter Mackillop; very special friends Boone and Donna Strother, and lifelong friend Irene Roach of Barrie, Ontario. Born in Toronto and growing up during the depression, Joe often said that things were so bad even the dog left home. Joe volunteered for the Canadian Army, but sustained a knee injury that prevented him from going overseas; something he always regretted. Joe married the love of his life, Margaret, in 1944. Moving back to B.C. with their daughters, Kathy and Patty; they settled in West Vancouver, where Joe drove taxi for Yellow Cab at night, and Margaret drove during the day. They bought their first farm in Richmond in the fifties, and began to breed and race JB racehorses, and Joe was employed on the waterfront. After many years in Richmond they relocated to Lytton, where they owned and operated a cow-calf-hay ranch while continuing to breed and race numerous horses. Now in his late fifties, Joe became a pretty fair cowboy. In 1990, after sixteen years of ranching, they moved to Vernon and purchased a small acreage in Coldstream, continuing to breed and race horses on a modest scale until Margaret’s passing. Although Joe excelled in many sports professionally, hockey was his greatest passion, playing wherever and whenever he could. With his love of training and racing horses, Joe was deeply involved with Kin Park racetrack. As a Director and volunteer for the Vernon and District Agricultural Society, he worked tirelessly to keep horse racing alive in the Interior. He was also a Director of the B.C. Breeders Association for many years. A hard worker all his life, he truly loved his family, and the highlight of this year was the introduction of his second great-granddaughter, McKeana. He was also the toughest man I ever knew. A Memorial Service will be announced in the Spring. Friends wishing to do so may make donations to a charity of their choice in memory of Joe, or to Minor Hockey. A beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather is now free from pain and suffering, and will be able to play hockey and train horses forever. We will miss him terribly. It broke our hearts to lose you, the day God called you home… Always remember father, You never went alone. Always in our hearts Your family”

Phebenell (Phebe) Henry, death notice, Barry’s Bay, Ontario, http://yourlifemoments.ca/sitepages/obituary.asp?oid=634451: “PHEBENELL (PHEBE) HENRY September 30, 1926 – August 20, 2012 Phebenell Senkler Manley was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. She was the youngest daughter to Davison and Margaret Ellen Manley, with older siblings Jack and Barbara. Spirited, bright and athletic as a youth, she participated in various sports, notably as a high jumper on the Hudson Bay Track Team. She graduated with her Bachelor of Economics from the University of British Columbia in 1949. On September 8, 1949, Phebe married Robert (Bob) Henry, a Social Worker with a common interest in positive social change. Phebe and Bob lived in Vancouver during their early years of marriage, and then moved to Ontario with their three daughters. She had a deep passion for education and received her Teaching Certificate from Ontario College of Teachers in 1963. Phebe taught for the North York School Board 1963-1972 and for the York School Board 1972-1987. Following her retirement she travelled to China, France and throughout Canada. Phebe moved to Barry’s Bay, Ontario to be closer to her eldest daughter and grandchildren, and quickly became an active member of the community; volunteering with the Barry’s Bay Library, Adult and Child Literacy Programs, Opeongo Seniors Club, and the Barry’s Bay Farmer’s Market; playing tennis, swimming, painting, playing bridge, entertaining friends, being a book club member, a rabid CFL football fan (even listening to games on the radio during blackout periods), and spending time with her family. She was a long time believer in social justice. She sought out voices of diversity, supported local and global causes of equality, and treated people of all ages and experiences with kindness and respect. Phebe will be remembered for her energy, warmth and her wonderful wit and sense of humour. Predeceased by husband Robert Henry, brother Jack Manley and sister Barbara Willows. Phebe is survived by daughters Lesley MacDonald (Peter Ritchie) of Combermere, ON, Ann Stuart (John Stuart) of Edmonton, AB, and Ellen Henry (David Rittenhouse) of Victoria BC; grandchildren Anna, Caitlin, Bronwyn, EmmaRose, Gavin, Ian, Alexander, and Graham; great-grandson Leif. The family wish to thank Dr. Bruce Harris, Margaret Atkinson and Maureen Kay for their care for Phebe over many years. In recent years Phebe greatly benefited from the additiional dedicated care of the staff at the Water Tower Lodge, CCAC, St. Francis Memorial Hospital and the Valley Manor. Memorial gathering will be held at a later date. In memory of Phebe, donations to the Community Resource Centre (Killaloe), Inc. Food and Toy Drive and the Madawaska Valley Food Bank would be greatly appreciated by the family.”
