Family Background

Ethelbert Lecky Simpson was born in Ireland on 25 November 25, 1869.

His parents were George Simpson and Mary G. Pim (1827-1906). It appears that George Simpson died sometime before 1890. Mary died in Rosser, Manitoba, in 1906.

Travel to Canada

In March 1887, Ethelbert travelled to Canada on the S.S. Parisian. He arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

It appears that he lived in Manitoba during the 1890s and that he was a farmer for much of his time in Manitoba.

On October 1, 1904, in Rosser, he married Alice Lucy Linette. She was born in Pancras, London, England, on February 8, 1876. Her parents were Alexander Frederick Linette (1827-1916) and Harriet Lucy Litten (1839-1930).

Arrival in Vancouver

Ethelbert first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1919. He was living at 1901 Haro Street, and he was working as a packer for the Hudson’s Bay Company.

By 1921, Alice was no longer living with Ethelbert. She was operating a rooming house at 1901 Haro Street, and her daughter, Dorothy, was living with her. It appears that Ethelbert had become ill, and that he was living in a medical institution. He died at Essondale, British Columbia, on May 10, 1925.

By 1935, Alice and Dorothy were living at 912 Broughton Street in Vancouver.
