John Butler Tiffin was a lumberman. He lived at 1834 Barclay Street in 1900 and 1901 and possibly in 1898 and 1899 as well. (The directories had few specific listings for the West of Denman area before 1900, and sometimes referred generally to “Denman Street.”)

John Butler Tiffin was born in Kent County, Ontario, on November 24, 1848. His father was Thomas Tiffin. His mother was Elizabeth (her last name was probably Butler).

After John finished school in Ontario, he was a farmer in Ontario until 1877.

By 1878, he had arrived in British Columbia, where he started work in the lumber business.

In 1880 he was a tunnel foreman on the railway projects in the Fraser canyon area.

By the mid-1880s, he was in Port Moody, British Columbia. (Many local people hoped that Port Moody would be the terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway, but the railway chose the area that became the City of Vancouver.)

He married Elizabeth Hurrell, probably sometime in the 1880s. She was born on November 14, about 1848, in Hamilton, Ontario.

In 1886, John appeared in a photograph of the first tea ship, the “W.B. Flint,” which arrived in Port Moody on July 27, 1886.

John B. Tiffin, British Columbia From the Earliest Times to the Present, volume 4; by Ethelbert Olaf Stuart Scholefield and Frederic William Howay; Vancouver : S.J. Clarke Publishing Company, 1914, pages 14-17 [page 16 is blank]; https://archive.org/stream/britishcolumbiaf04schouoft#page/14/mode/1up; https://archive.org/stream/britishcolumbiaf04schouoft#page/15/mode/1up; https://archive.org/stream/britishcolumbiaf04schouoft#page/17/mode/1up.

“John Butler Tiffin, one of the prominent and substantial citizens of Vancouver, lives now practically retired from active business, although he still holds the position of president of the Red Cedar Lumber Company, Limited. He is one of the pioneers of British Columbia, having come here in 1877, and since 1878 he has been successfully engaged in the lumber business, having done much toward building up this industry and bringing to the world’s attention the vast resources of the province.

John Butler Tiffin was born on November 24, 1848, in Kent county, Ontario, and is a son of Thomas and Elizabeth Tiffin. The father was one of the first settlers in what was known then as the “old fields” in the southern part of Kent county. John B. Tiffin was educated in the public schools of Ontario and for a number of years farmed in that province, until in 1877 the spirit of the west lured him to British Columbia, and he has never had occasion to regret this step, for it proved the corner stone to an active and successful career which not only brought him prosperity but proved a valuable part in opening the resources of the country to the world. In 1878 Mr. Tiffin engaged in the lumber business and has ever since been engaged in that line, having now for a number of years been president of the Red Cedar Lumber Company, Limited, although he has practically retired from active business. He is also a stockholder in a number of other important companies here.

Mr. Tiffin has always taken deep interest in public enterprises of value and for a time served as a director in the Vancouver Exhibition Association. He gave further evidence of his public spirit by accepting office as license commissioner for Vancouver in 1908 and is also an ex-president of the Vancouver Amateur Driving Association. He is a tory in politics, strong in his views and stands for those things that make for the good of the country. His religious faith is that of the English church. Fraternally he belongs to Cascade Lodge, A. F. & A. M., and he is a member of the Canadian Club. Careful of his own interests and considerate of those of others, Mr. Tiffin has attained to prosperity, his every action being worthy of the highest commendation. He is greatly interested in the upbuilding of his province along various lines, such as the improvement of stock, horses, cattle, etc. He has generous humanitarian principles and suffering humanity, especially children, always touch an answering chord in his heart. Mr. Tiffin is a loyal and faithful citizen of Vancouver and, as he has proven his worth, enjoys the confidence, esteem and respect of all who have had occasion to meet him in a social or business way.”

“Shingle Mill Is Destroyed By Fire; Red Cedar Lumber Company’s Establishment Is Wiped Out,” Vancouver Daily World, September 14, 1905, page 11: “At 10 o’clock Wednesday night fire broke out in the Red Cedar Lumber and Shingle Co.’s mill at Cedar Ave. and in an incredibly short time the building was wiped out altogether, although the adjacent sheds of shingles were saved. The fire was first discovered by a Japanese employee who raised the alarm and tried to subdue the fire with the garden variety of hose, hut the blaze soon got away from him and by the time the brigade landed there was no hope of saving the mill. The hose wagons from Nos. 1. 2 and 5 hall, and a chemical from No. 1 were all working, but until the big steam fire engine arrived very little effectual work was accomplished. The steam engine soon put the fire back and held it to the mill building, where it quickly burned out. All the machinery in the mill was totally destroyed and nothing is left of the mill building this morning except the brick boiler – house. Although the plant was not a large one, the loss will run into several thousands of dollars. . . .”

“John B. Tiffen [sic] Died At Noon; Had Lived in B.C. More Than Half Century; Neck Was Broken,” Vancouver Province, Septemver 25, 1930, page 1 [includes photograph of John B. Tiffen]:

About a decade ago the deceased, then largely interested in cattle raising in the Cariboo, met with an accident at his ranch which broke his neck. That he lived was a matter of amazement to his friends and medical men.

For years Mr. Tiffen was rated as one of the wealthy men of Vancouver. He made a great deal of money more than a quarter century ago when he operated a large sawmill on Burrard Inlet almost on the site now occupied by No. 1 grain elevator.
