Gilbert John Vaux was a purser on the S.S. Cassiar. He lived at 1839 Morton Avenue in 1914.

Gilbert John Vaux was born on October 28, 1886, in Brixton, London, England. His father was John Vaux (1862-1948). Gilbert’s mother was Ada Jane Potts (1866-1941).

The Vaux family moved to Australia, where Gilbert’s father was a sheep rancher for 37 years.

Gilbert first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1911. He was living at 184 West 12th Avenue, and he was working as a butcher.

On January 7, 1913, the Cheslakee capsized and sank at the Van Anda wharf on Texada Island. Seven people died.

A coroner’s jury reviewed the cause of death of three of the passengers. The jury initially concluded that Gilbert was responsible for the deaths, because he had not obeyed the captain’s order to call all passengers to the starboard side of the ship. However, a marine inquiry later cleared Gilbert of responsibility.

A salvage operation raised the Cheslakee and took it to North Vancouver for rebuilding and lengthening. The ship received a new name (Cheakamus), and was back in service in June 1913.

From 1913 to 1928, Gilbert worked at a series of jobs in the shipping industry.

In 1929, Gilbert was with Reed, Henderson, Limited, who were dealers in government, municipal, industrial and public utility securities.

He later became an insurance underwriter.

Gilbert was married twice.

On February 26, 1913, in Vancouver, he married Maude Fox. She was born in England about 1885. Her father was John Fox (or Charles James Fox?). Her mother was Matilda Perriton. This marriage ended in divorce, possibly before 1925. On October 20, 1925, in Vancouver, Maude married Frederick McGraw.

On December 6, 1927, in Vancouver, Gilbert married Vera May Perraton, who was a beauty parlor proprietor. She was born on May 1, 1899, in Plympton, England. Her father was John Edwin Perraton. Her mother was Julia Ann Cox.

Gilbert died in Vancouver on December 25, 1967.

Vera died in Victoria, British Columbia, on January 3, 1985.

Gilbert had a son.

 

John Michael Vaux

It appears that John Michael Vaux was a student at St. George’s School in Vancouver, and that he attended the University of British Columbia, where he was sometimes known as “Mike Vaux.” He was an editor and reporter on the Ubyssey, the university’s newspaper.

He was married to Beverley Lynn Adams.

It appears that Mike and Beverley had a son, Grahame.

Mike and Beverley had another son, John Christopher Vaux. He was born in Port Alberni, British Columbia, on May 29, 1968. He died in Vancouver on April 12, 1969. He was buried in Capilano View Cemetery in West Vancouver, British Columbia.

The hall itself had been beautified out of recognition with streamers and a profusion of miniature wedding bells in gold and blue, the decorations being the work of Mr. and Mrs. Mills, assisted by a number of young people.

“John Vaux, 84 and 6ft. 2 in., will be the oldest and tallest man ever to fly on the trans-Pacific service from Australia to America.

Alone Mr. Vaux will make the 10,000 mile trip from Perth to see his eldest son Gilbert (60). They have not seen each other since Gilbert left twenty-seven years ago to ‘make his fortune’ in Canada.  Now Gilbert is a wealthy stockbroker in Vancouver.

When Mr. Vaux boards the A.N.A. Skymaster on Saturday night on the first leg of the journey it will be the first time he has ever been in a plane. By Wednesday he will have flown 10,000 miles.

Mr. Vaux is a farmer from Ongerup (near Gnowangerup). He and his second son Stanley (57) built up a 6000-acre farm on virgin land and now his son has taken over.

At San Francisco, where there is a halt for a few hours, he hopes to see his younger brother (83). After he has spent a year in Canada he wants to go on to England where he has a sister and many nieces and nephews.

Mr. Vaux is confident about the trip. ‘Why should I have any doubt?’ he asked.”

Although it was his first plane trip Vaux said he enjoyed it immensely and ‘never once, had a tingle of nerves.’ He may settle here with his son, whom he hadn’t seen for 27 years.”
