Austin’s Life in Eastern Canada

From 1891 to 1911, Austin was living with his parents in Toronto.

He attended St. Andrew’s College. The college, which opened in 1899, was originally in Chestnut Park, the former residence of Senator David Macpherson (1835-1896). The college moved to Rosedale in 1905 and then to Aurora, Ontario in 1926.

Sometime after Montreal Locomotive Works began to produce resources for the war effort, Austin became a member of the Imperial Munitions Board’s Department of Aeronautical Supplies. Around this time he gained the rank of major, which he sometimes used in his later career.

Austin first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1918. He was living at the Vancouver Hotel.

Edward Elliott died in Vancouver on December 15, 1940.

 

Business Success, Shannon Estate and Horse Racing

During the mid-1920s, the Vancouver directories listed Austin as “retired.” However, he later became wealthy from several business ventures, and he moved into a series of ever-grander residences in Vancouver.

By 1928 he had become the vice-president of Home Oil Distributors Limited.

By 1931, Austin was the managing director of Bralco Development and Investment Company. He and his associates also started the Bralorne Mining Company, a successful gold mining business that operated in the Bridge River region of British Columbia.

In June 1936, Austin bought the Shannon estate (7255 Granville St.) from Mary Isabella Rogers, the widow of Benjamin Tingley Rogers.

Edward Joseph Elliott (father of Kathleen Ruth Elliot)

Memorable Manitobans: Edward Joseph Elliott (1861-1940); policeman; http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/people/elliott_ej.shtml.

“Born at Kilkenny, Ireland on 1 August 1861, he emigrated to Canada in 1883 with his brother and settled on a farm in Manitoba. The brothers soon found that farming was not to their liking so they moved to Winnipeg and joined the city police force. After seven years of service, he quit to become Chief of the Manitoba Provincial Police, which involved him in some of the most famous criminal cases in Western Canada, including the capture of Krafchenko, the Spain slaying at Stonewall, and the Robideau murder at St. Claude. By 1901, he had organized the Provincial Police so efficiently he was able to remain in Winnipeg where he set up a records management system, including the known “Rogues Gallery,” which was regarded one of the most up-to-date in the Dominion and contributed to the arrests of several internationally-wanted criminals. He retired from the force in 1919 and was succeeded by J. G. Rattray. He and wife Bridget Mary Sherman had four children: Emily M. Elliott (1883-?), Lena Mary Elliott (1885-?), Edward G. S. Elliott (1889-?), and Kathleen Ruth Elliott (1896-?). He moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1928 where he died on 15 December 1940.”

Kathleen Finucane, death notice, published in Vancouver Sun from Mar. 19 to Mar. 20, 2007; “FINUCANE _ Kathleen Elliot Austin January 6, 1920 – March 14, 2007 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and extraordinary friend “Bill” Finucane.” Bill (nee Taylor) was born in Vancouver, eldest daughter of Austin and Kathleen Taylor. A graduate of Crofton House School, she married John Finucane of Spokane, Washington and began a new life as a bride in Pasadena, California where she lived for 61 years. She returned seven years ago to Vancouver to be near her family. Predeceased by her husband, John, and her brother, Austin, she is survived by her daughter Kathy, son-in-law, Peter Armstrong, grandchildren, Michael and Kristin, and a sister, Pat Buckley, of Stamford Connecticut. Bill led a charmed life filled with a wide variety of interests. She adored people and developed a large circle of friends wherever she went. One of her great passions in life was horse racing which she managed to fit in amongst all her philanthropic pursuits. Opening day at “Santa Anita” was a must. She had many friends among the racing community in California. Bill believed strongly in helping others. She served as President of the Pasadena Junior League, was a founding member of the Pasadena Senior Center and worked for many years at the American Red Cross in Pasadena. She was later drafted to head up the Department of Volunteers at the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Red Cross. There she organized disaster relief, refugee assistance, and spoke around the country about their blood program. She served on the National Board of Governors for the American Red Cross in Washington, DC and received their highest volunteer honor, The Averell Harriman Award. She was a member of the California Committee on the status of women under then Governor Ronald Reagan, a member of St. John’s Hospital Board in Santa Monica and in the 1980’s Chairman of the Board of the Institute of Critical Care in Palm Desert. Bill’s greatest joy was spending time with her two grandchildren, Michael and Kristin, upon whom she doted. Always up for an adventure, she jumped at the chance to cross the Atlantic in a sailboat after she “retired” from volunteer service with her brother-in-law, Bill as the only woman in a crew of seven. In later years Bill enjoyed renewing her friendships in Vancouver and savouring sunsets on her West End deck with her life-long pal, Doreen MacKenzie Sanders. Bill was a great lady with tremendous charisma, an accomplished citizen of the world who embraced life with a keen sense of fun and did a lot for her community along the way. She will be missed terribly by all. Our family would like to thank all the loving helpers from We Care, Anne Munro, Sara from Classic Caregivers, Dr. Bob Wakefield for their years of kindness, and the wonderful nurses at the Home Hospice Program. The family is indebted to all for making Bill’s final days as comfortable as possible. A celebration of her life will be held Thursday, March 22 at 3:30 p.m., at St. Mary’s Kerrisdale, 2490 West 37th Avenue, Vancouver. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the charity of your choice in Bill’s name.
