Wickwire, Hanlan Garfield (1880- after 1949)

Hanlan Garfield Wickwire lived at 1890 Georgia Street from 1914 to 1916. He sometimes worked as a farmer, and sometimes as a chauffeur.

Hanlan Wickwire was born in Romney, Kent County, Ontario, on October 17, 1880. His father was William Wickwire; his mother was Matilda Ann Coatsworth.

On September 29, 1903, in Romney, Ontario, Hanlan Wickwire married Maggie Ione Mills. She was born about 1880. Her father was Horatio Edward Mills; her mother was Amarissa Jane Nichols.

Hanlan arrived in Vancouver about 1910; he moved almost every year, and he had a series of occupations, mostly relating to real estate.

He first appeared in Vancouver in 1910 as “H G Wickwire, builder”; he was living at 2128 Alberta Street. Maggie was working at Pearl Tea Parlors at 3230 Westminster Avenue (later Main Street), along with Jeanne Wickwire.

In 1911, “Hamlin G. Wickwire” was living at 202 East 20th Ave. associated with the real estate firm of Wickwire Brothers at 3304 Main Street. Aylmer M. Wickwire and William C. Wickwire were the other Wickwire Brothers.

By 1912, “Hanlon” was living at 4180 Ontario Street. He was in a new real estate business called Wickwire and Co., along with Woodford A. Higgs. The company’s office was at at 3326 Main Street.

In 1913, “Hanlan” had moved again, to 471 West 20th Avenue. He was the manager of the Wellington Arcade, a shooting gallery 106 East Hastings Street.

In 1914 and 1915, Hanlan was a chauffeur, and was living at 1890 Georgia Street. In 1916, Hanlan was still at 1890 Georgia Street, with “farmer” as his occupation..

In 1917, Hanlan was gone from the Vancouver directory. Sometime in 1916, the family moved to Medicine Hat, Alberta, near Maggie’s father and other relatives, where Hanlan became a farmer.

On December 4, 1922, Hanlan went on a trip to Detroit, Michigan, apparently intending to stay an indefinite period of time. He gave his occupation as “motor mechanic.” Maggie was apparently still living at Red Willow, Alberta. In July 1923, Harlan again entered the United States, this time along with Maggie and Ione. Harlan and Maggie lived in Detroit from about 1923 to 1945; later they moved to Wheatley, Ontario, where they were still living in 1949.

H. Garfield Wickwire and Maggie (Mills) Wickwire were buried in the Erie Cemetery in Romney, Ontario.

Hanlan and Maggie had one child:

Ione Wickwire

Ione Wickwire was born in Ontario about 1906. She was living in Detroit, Michigan, in 1949.
