Edward’s Life in Ontario

In 1891, Edward was living with his parents in Hamilton, Ontario.

In the late 1890s he was a student at Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario.

By 1901 he was in Chatham, Ontario, working as a bank clerk.

 

Move to British Columbia

Edward first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1910. He was living at 2006 Beach Avenue and working as a realtor.

He lived at the following addresses in Vancouver.

1910 to 1913 2006 Beach Avenue
1914 528 West 19th Avenue (possible connection)
1915 to 1923 Not listed under Vancouver names
1924 to 1954 2658 West Third Avenue

 

In 1910, he was a realtor with the Ryan Sutherland Company. (The other principal of the firm was James A. Ryan.)

On June 21, 1911, in Vancouver, Edward married Harriett Mary (“May”) Chesman. She was born in Chatham, New Brunswick, on April 15, 1884. Her parents were Daniel Chesman (1851-1936) and Mary Ann Stapledon (1851-1924).

 

Western Canada Townsites Limited

In 1911, Edward was the secretary of Western Canada Townsites Limited. The president of the company was Soloman A. Robinson; the vice president was J. Woolf (probably Joseph Woolf).

The company promoted the development of “Fort Salmon,” which was about 20 miles north of Fort George (later Prince George) in central British Columbia.

According to the promotional literature, Fort Salmon had excellent prospects for farming. As well, it was going to be at or near the intersection of many proposed railway lines.

Advertisements for Fort Salmon lots appeared in newspapers as far away as Minnesota.

Star Tribune (Minneapolis, Minnesota); November 20, 1913, page 21, column 6.

At first there was some interest in the townsite. However, the only completed railway that appeared during those days was the Grand Trunk Pacific, and it did not pass through Fort Salmon.

Along with the lack of railway transportation, the onset of the First World War discouraged investors, and Fort Salmon never prospered. By 1917, Fort Salmon lots were difficult to sell at any reasonable price.

“Robert Gordon Sutherland was an Anglican clergyman and scholar who received a BA from Trinity College in 1875 and an MA in 1877. Sutherland was born on 27 August 1845 in Aberdeen, Scotland. He was educated at King Edward’s School in Birmingham, England, before entering Trinity College, Cambridge. He arrived in Canada in 1866 and entered Trinity College, Toronto, where he received a BA and an MA.

Sutherland was ordained deacon at St Stephen’s Church, Toronto, in 1870 and priest at All Saints, Whitby, in 1871.

Sutherland was curate of Christ Church and All Saints Church in Hamilton from 1873 to 1876, became rector of St Mark’s in Hamilton in 1877, was made a canon of Christ Church Cathedral in Hamilton in 1885, and was a sub-dean of the Diocese of Niagara. He was elected delegate to the Provincial Synod in 1886. He lectured widely on Shakespeare and according to the Trinity University Review, in its April-May 1913 issue, a course of lectures on Shakespeare’s heroines he delivered at Trinity College on the Saturdays in Lent had the distinction of being almost, if not quite, the best money-making course that has ever been given.

Sutherland married Jane Bennetts of St. Anstell, Cornwall, England, on 24 November 1869 at Bruce Mines, Ontario.

Robert Gordon Sutherland died on 27 November 1921 in Hamilton, Ontario.”

Born June 6, 1914 in Vancouver, Elinor never strayed far from her Kitsilano roots. Lifelong friendships developed in the neighbourhood, at St. Marks church, Kitsilano High School and The Aces Club were later augmented by associations made at the Arbutus Village Recreation Centre, Musqueam Golf Club and numerous bridge groups. Elinor was a successful businesswoman. She sold real estate, mainly on Vancouver’s West Side, for nearly forty years. Elinor’s sunny disposition, practical nature, boundless energy and independent, indomitable spirit served her well throughout her life. She will be missed, especially by her loving children: Marilyn Miller (Peter), Barbara Cooper (Jack), and Roger McMeans (Kim), and grandchildren: Jeremy, Ashleigh, Alison, Ian and Karen. Predeceased by her grandson Nigel Miller. The family extends gratitude to staff at Holy Family Hospital and Braddan Private Hospital for their kindness and loving care. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, June 17 at 2:00 p.m., at St Mark’s Church: 1805 Larch Street at West 2nd Avenue in Kitsilano.”
