Dates of existence


Daniel Barclay and his wife Jemima lived in Port Elgin, Ontario before moving west to New Westminster. The 1895 B.C. directory lists a Daniel Barclay, shoemaker, living at 21 Eighth Street. A business is also listed at the same address: Barclay and McGregor, dealers in shoes and boots. An early photo (IHP0189) shows this shop on Eighth Street. In 1897 the business of Barclay and Adams appears at 751 Columbia Street. The store was destroyed in the 1898 fire. The archives has a claim for losses suffered in the fire from this company. This business was rebuilt and appears to have lasted up to 1915. In 1919 Daniel Barclay is listed as a shoe repairer at 48 Eighth Street. The Barclays had two children, Douglas, born in 1891 and May born in 1898. The family eventually settled at 1513 Nanaimo Street. Daniel Barclay died in 1924. His wife died in 1932. May Barclay attended the University of British Columbia and taught there as a professor of mathematics for 26 years. She died in 1961 at 1513 Nanaimo Street. Douglas Barclay became a doctor and died in Golden, B.C. in 1953.
