Mrs. Simon J. Tunstall (born Marianne Lawson Innes) was married to Simon John Tunstall, who was a physician and real property developer. Mrs. Tunstall was at 2037 Pendrell Street in 1913, although the directory spelled her surname as “Dunstall.”

Marianne Lawson Innes was born on February 27, 1862, in London, England. Her father was James Henry Innes; her mother was Marianne Wright. James Henry Innes was the naval storekeeper at the naval base in Esquimalt, British Columbia.

On September 22, 1885, in Victoria, British Columbia, Marianne married Simon John Tunstall. He was born on September 19, 1854, in St. Anne De Bellevue, Quebec. His father was Gabriel Christie Tunstall (1824-1884); his mother was Janet Fraser (1821-1909), a daughter of Simon Fraser, chief factor of the North West Company (but not the well-known explorer with the same name).

After completing his early schooling in Montreal, Simon went to McGill University, where he graduated in medicine in 1875. In 1881, he went to British Columbia, where he worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway in Lytton and Kamloops.

In 1892, the family moved to Vancouver. Simon was the president of the Caledonian and St. Andrews societies. He was president of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia, and was president of the Canadian Medical Association. He was active in the Masons, and served as church warden and lay delegate to the synod of the Church of England.

In 1902, Simon built the Tunstall Building at 709 Dunsmuir Street, on the northwest corner of Granville and Dunsmuir. Initially it was three storeys.

Later, the building gained two more storeys; this is the Tunstall Block in 1926.

In 1960, the building went through a major reconstruction: the upper floors came down, resulting in a modern structure of only two storeys.

Eventually, the Tunstall Building disappeared as part of the construction of Pacific Centre. In 2014, the Holt Renfrew store was on the site.)

Simon retired from his medical practice about 1910.

In 1912, Marianne sold a piece of property at 786 Bute Street, which was at the northeast corner of Bute Street and Robson Street. The property was the site of the Bute Street Hospital.

The Vancouver Province reported that the price of the lot was $80,000. Dr. Chappell, a member of the British Parliament, was representing the buyers of the property. The site was going to become a two-storey pressed brick business block, but the hospital building was going to remain undisturbed “for at least some time.”

The poet Emily Pauline Johnson died in this hospital on March 7, 1913. In 1917, Fred “Cyclone” Taylor, the hockey start for the Vancouver Millionaires, had an operation in the Bute Street Hospital to remove his appendix.

The building later became a boarding house. In 1937, an unnamed local investor bought the property, which was then called the “Old Bute Street Hospital.”

The hospital was still there in 1960; the property became the location of a Texaco service station for several years, followed by a two-storey mixed-use building that has been the location of several restaurants.

In 1913, Marianne made arrangements to take her daughters to Europe for a year.

Simon had been suffering from problems with alcohol, and he entered a nursing home. He died on March 15, 1917.The obituary in the Vancouver Province described him as having “a lingering illness.” Although the newspapers reported that his estate was worth about $250,000, the estate documents said that the actual value was about $134,000, which was still a large amount at that time.

By the fall of 1917, the Vancouver Province was reporting a dispute about Simon’s will. Originally, his will had left most of his estate to members of the Tunstall family. However, in 1916, Simon made a codicil which amended the will.

The codicil created an allowance of $100 a month to Emma Mary Goodwin Playter for the rest of her life; this allowance would carry on for Mrs. Playter’s son, Edward William Playter, if he were to survive Mrs. Playter.

It appears that Mrs. Playter had been born Emma Mary Goodwin Colk in 1884 in Aylsham, Norfolk, England. Her father was George Colk; her mother was Emma Elizabeth Goodwin.

On March 17, 1902, in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, England, Emma married Edward Playter. He was born about 1878. It appears that their son, Edward William Playter was born in Wisbech in 1902. About 1905, Emma’s parents were living in British Columbia

The Tunstall family members alleged that Simon had made the codicil while he was the victim of alcoholic dementia, and that he had come under the undue influence of Mrs. Playter. The court was ready to hear the trial of the dispute In April 1918, but the parties settled the action.

Marianne died in Vancouver on May 14, 1935.

The administration of Simon’s estate continued for many years. In 1954, the court was still reviewing the accounts of the estate. At that time, Emma Mary Goodwin Plater had re-married. Her surname had become “Brown,” and she and her son Edward were then living in Everett, Washington State. It appears that Emma lived until the age of 95, and that she died in Washington State in 1979.

The stage-hands were raising the brilliant Joan Miro backdrop for the opening ballet, “Jeux d’Enfants” and a cluster of Russian dancers in practice attire and dressing gowns stopped their warm-up to watch the brief demonstration. The teacher was the 30-year-old Texan, June Roper, a protegé of Ernest Belcher in Hollywood, who had passed on to her his mastery of a strict Cecchetti technique. The pupils were Rosemary Deveson from Bowsman River, Manitoba, who had just turned 16, Patricia Denise Meyers and Rosemary Sankey, both Vancouver-born and 15 years of age. The adjudicators were Colonel Wassily de Basil, director of the Company, and David Lichine, principal dancer and resident choreographer.”

She was born in Charlottesville, Va., to Rosemary Sankey, a former dancer with the New York City Ballet and a John Powers model, and James Deering Danielson, a Foreign Service officer. Barbara spent much of her early childhood in Europe and the Middle East, returning to the United States as a teenager. She graduated from Hollins College, Roanoke, Va., with a degree in military history, followed by a degree in interior design from Inchbald School of Design in England. Upon her return to the U.S., she worked for Hastings Design and then the Greater Miami Opera, where she was a member of the production staff. In 1985, she became a director of Miami Corp., a family concern. Barbara’s civic activities included the Dade-Monroe Mental Health Board in Miami, Fla., where she chaired the alcohol committee and the Cuban Haitian Task Force before becoming president of the organization. She was a founding member of the Miami City Ballet, serving on the board for many years. Barbara represented the Deering family for the Vizcaya Museum and the Charles Deering Estate. In Northeast Harbor, she was a board member of the College of the Atlantic and of the Women’s Health Center. Barbara supported the Northeast Harbor Library, the YMCA, and Friends of Acadia. She was a hospice volunteer with Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County. Barbara adored the beauty and tranquility of Northeast Harbor and Mount Desert Island. In recent years, she spent much of her time in Sun Valley, Idaho, which she similarly cherished. Barbara is survived by stepdaughters, Carolyn Napolitano, Lindsley Lowell Monfort and Loring Lowell; her sister, Jocelyn Tennille; her brother, Charles Seitz; her stepmother, Beverly Danielson; two nieces; and five nephews. Barbara was an exceedingly warm and loving person, and radiated an infectious happiness to her many friends and family. Her credo “Live Well — Laugh Often — Love Much” captures her spirit quite beautifully. Barbara will be greatly missed.”

A celebration of Barbara’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Deering Estate Foundation, 16701 SW 72nd Ave., Palmetto Bay, FL 33157 or Friends of Acadia, 43 Cottage St., P.O.
