Frank Crompton Sewell was a former member of the North West Mounted Police, and worked as an accountant, building contractor and justice of the peace. He lived at 1102 Denman Street in 1903 and at 1224 Denman Street in 1904 and 1905.

Frank was born on November 22, 1869, in Bolton Le Moors, Lancashire, England. His father was James Croft Sewell (1839-1897). Frank’s mother was Pathynia Crompton (about 1832-1885). After Pathynia died in 1885, James Croft Sewell married Annie Briggs on November 3, 1887.

James Croft Sewell was involved in several businesses, including cotton manufacturing, cement manufacturing and women’s hats. It appears that he was also an inventor. Most of his businesses were only moderately successful, and he dissolved at least two partnerships. He also became bankrupt in 1886.

Frank was educated at Kilgrimol public school in St. Annes-on-Sea.

The school building still exists at the southwest corner of Hornby Road and Clifton Drive: it is the home of the St. Annes District Club.

 

Later Frank went to Owens College in Manchester (which became part of the University of Manchester).

He came to Canada about 1886, and he attended Trinity College in Toronto, Ontario for a time.

In 1888 he enlisted as a member of the North West Mounted Police. He said that he had previously worked as a carpenter and engineer.

His term of service was supposed to be five years. After serving for two and a half years as a constable, he paid 96 dollars to purchase his discharge from the force in June 1890. As part of his application for discharge, he said that he had “secured a good position in town, which will permit of my performing the duties of organist at the Presbyterian Church as well.”

After Frank left the North West Mounted Police, he first lived in Calgary. In July 1890, he was one of the entertainers at the Orange Order’s celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Crossing of the Boyne.

By August 1890, Frank had joined the United Roses Lodge of the Sons of England Benefit Society.

Soon afterward, Frank moved to Innisfail (about 120 kilometres north of Calgary).

On June 16, 1892, in Calgary, Frank married Mary Sophia (“Itta”) Grant Mackay. She was born in Strathspey, Scotland in 1870. Her father was John Grant Mackay (1829-1905). Her mother was Fanny (1834-1925). After the wedding, Frank and Mary went to live in Innisfail.

Mary’s father wrote a letter of appreciation to the Calgary Herald.

About 1895, Frank moved to Sandon, British Columbia, where he became active in gold and silver mining.

In September 1899, Frank was one of the entertainers at a local concert in Sandon. He sang an 1891 song called “The Deathless Army.” The author of the words was Frederic Edward Weatherly (1848-1929), an English lawyer who also wrote the words to the song “Danny Boy.”

On December 14, 1899, in Sandon, Frank married Jennie Wyard Hatt. She was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, on January 5, 1874. Her father was George Hatt (about 1840-1901). Her mother was Sarah Elizabeth Clarke (1846-1922).

In 1900, Frank resigned his position as city clerk and went to work with the Minnesota Silver Company, which owned the Ivanhoe Mine near Sandon.

Frank needed glasses to read, and he was evidently pleased with the work of George Whitfield Grimmett (1864-1949), who was a watchmaker and optician in Sandon. (George’s brother, Martin Luther Grimmett (1863-1940) was a lawyer and the mayor of Sandon in 1902.)

In 1902, Frank and Jennie moved to Vancouver. At first, they lived at 1102 Denman Street, and Frank set up an accounting business at room 21 in the Inns of Court Building at 423 Hamilton Street.

“This property, comprising Ivanhoe and Elgin Crown-granted claims, is owned by the Minnesota Silver Company, Limited, c/o W. S. Schulze, Virginia, Minn., and is situated in Ivanhoe basin at the; head of the west fork of Sandon creek. It is accessible by road and trail from Sandon. The property was located about 1893 and was worked fairly steadily up to 1905, after which year it lay idle until 1913 when operations were resumed and continued until 1921. Since this time little if any work has been done within the property limits. In 1900 a 100-ton mill was erected at Sandon on the site of the present Silversmith concentrator. It was connected to the mine workings by a Riblet aerial tramway 8,500 feet long with a drop of 2,300 feet. This mill was burned in July, 1915, and subsequently rebuilt by the Rosebery-Surprise Mining Company, who acquired an option on the Ivanhoe property in 1919. This option was allowed to expire in the following year and in 1921 Silversmith Mines, Limited, took over the Ivanhoe mill and remodelled it.

The first production recorded is in 1895 when shipments of 150 tons, carrying 100 ounces in silver to the ton and 60 per cent lead, were made. Shipments to January, 1900, amounted to 400 tons of similar ore. The year of heaviest production was 1904 when 12,900 tons of concentrating ore was extracted. This ore, as mined, ran about 9 ounces in silver to the ton and 6 per cent lead. Some zinc ore was included with the ore mined in 1919 and 1921, but records of zinc production are incomplete.”
