Brown, grocer, of this city, and formerly of Scarboro, Ont., was joined in the holy bonds of matrimony by the Rev. E.D. McLaren, to Angus M. Stewart, formerly of Woodstock, Ont, and now of the well-known and popular firm of Messrs. Clubb & Stewart, clothiers, Cordova st. None but relatives of the contracting parties were present at the ceremony. The happy couple left on today’s train for a couple of week’s honeymoon in the Interior, bearing with them, it is almost useless to say, the best and sincerest well wishes of a large circle of friends. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart will, on their return, reside at No. 607 Hamilton street.”

The Rev. E.D. McLaren officiated. After the wedding breakfast the bridal couple left on a honeymoon trip to the upper country, their first stopping point being at Agassiz. A large number of their friends attended their departure from the station, which was made midst showers of goo omened Japanese rices.”

“Town Topics,” Vancouver World, April 1, 1891, page 8: “License Inspector J.T. Brown has received the new bicycle tags, which were procured through W. Ralph & Co. The tags are made of aluminum and can be fitted to any wheel, so that they will be in a good position to be seen as far as the name-plate of the wheel. The tax is $1. A fairly long time will be allowed for the payment of the tax at the City Hall, and then policemen will be instructed to stop cyclists on the street and see that they have their tags. It is hardly possible that there will be a test of the by-law in the courts, as cyclists are a unit that the law is a good one and it is expected to meet with the approval of every wheelman in the City.”

  2. Thank you for the research done on my family. A.M. Stewart was my grandfather. Charles C. Stewart was my father. Agnes Stewart was my grandmother. She died a few weeks after after visiting me as a baby in Santa Monica. My Mother died in 2009 at the age of 98. My brother John Norman and sister Janet Margaret are still living.
