William White was a lawyer and realtor. He lived at 1914 Robson Street in 1907, 1908, and 1915.

 

Family Background and Early Life

William White was born in Hamilton, Ontario on April 29, 1856. (In one source his name appears as “William Howard White.”) His parents were Thomas White and Elizabeth Patrick Barr.

In 1873, William began studying at Upper Canada College. He later went to the University of Toronto.

According to the 1881 Canada census, William was a lawyer in Picton, Prince Edward County, Ontario. (Some sources say that he was not called to the Ontario bar until 1882.)

 

Move to Western Canada

William later went to Manitoba, where he spent a short time in Winnipeg and Brandon before going to the North West Territories. He settled in the area of what became the city of Regina.

In 1882 he was a founding member of the Assiniboia Club in Regina. (Some sources say that he was also mayor of Regina. The list of mayors from December 1883 onward does not include any reference to William White: https://www.regina.ca/residents/heritage-history/list-of-mayors/index.htm.)

From 1883 to 1885, William represented Regina in the Northwest Territories legislative assembly.

In 1885 he served with the government forces during the North West Rebellion.

On March 23, 1887, in Moosomin, Northwest Territories, William married Frances Louisa Hall. It appears that she was born in Ireland on July 28, 1862. Her parents were John Bolton Cholerton Hall and Hannah Bomford Pearson.

In 1887, William became a Crown prosecutor, based in Moosomin. He acquired several portions of land near Moosomin.

To British Columbia

By the late 1890s, William was a lawyer in Revelstoke, British Columbia, along with John Manning Scott (1870-1914).

John Manning Scott later became a police magistrate. He died in Kamloops, British Columbia on April 29, 1914.

Move to Yukon Territory

About 1899, William moved to the Yukon Territory.

In 1901, he was in Dawson City, Yukon. He was a law partner of Charles Coursolles McCaul (1858-1928), who lived at 1900 Robson Street in 1904, and perhaps at 1914 Robson Street as well. (Further information appears on the page for Charles Coursolles McCaul: https://westendvancouver.wordpress.com/biographies-a-m/biographies-m/mccaul-charles-coursolles-1858-1928/.)

At the time of the 1901 Canada Census, William was in the Yukon by himself. Frances and her children, Richard and Phyllis, were in Toronto, Ontario.

 

To Vancouver and Travels to England

William arrived in Vancouver in 1906. He bought Charles McCaul’s house on Robson Street.

Vancouver Province, June 1, 1906, page 3.

Vancouver Province, June 1, 1906, page 3.

William appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1907, 1908 and 1915. He lived at 1914 Robson Street in each of those years.

His offices were in the Molson’s Bank Chambers at 543 West Hastings Street.

In the fall of 1907, William and Frances took their children to England. Frances and the children were planning to remain in England for about a year.

War Service

By the beginning of the First World War, William had returned to Canada.

Although he was already about 60 years old, he became the captain and paymaster for the 143rd Battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force. (This was a “bantam unit,” one of several that the Canadian military organized to recruit soldiers who were shorter than the standard height of five feet, four inches.)

When William signed his officer’s declaration paper in Victoria, British Columbia in May 1916, he and Frances were living at “The Angela” in Victoria.

He served in Europe for about 30 months. He was discharged from the military forces on August 20, 1919, as part of the general demobilization at the end of the war.

 

Board of Commerce

In 1919, the federal government tried to improve the Canadian economy by enacting the Board of Commerce Act and the Combines and Fair Prices Act.

The Board of Commerce had two main functions:

  • to investigate and restrain combinations, monopolies, trusts and mergers constituting a “combine.”
  • to inquire into and enforce prohibitions against hoarding and profiteering.

William moved to Ottawa, Ontario to become the secretary of the Board of Commerce.

Retirement and Life in Toronto

After William retired in 1922, he and Frances lived in Toronto until the late 1940s.

William died in Toronto on May 30, 1948. (Some sources, including his Canadian Expeditionary Forces file, say that he died on May 9, 1953. The reason for this later date of death is not clear.)

On February 5, 1927, in Manhattan, New York, he married Louise Victoria Weyand. She was born in Beaver, Pennsylvania, on February 17, 1899. Her father was Edwin Stanton Weyand (1862-1913).
