Dates of existence



George William Trayton (W.T.) Bush was born in Camberwell (London), England in 1889. In 1910, George immigrated to Winnipeg, Canada, where he was soon employed by the Dominion Express Company (later called the Canadian Pacific Express Company) as a traffic solicitor. He fought in the First World War, serving in the Canadian 1st Division for three and a half years. On January 19, 1922, George married Pearl Mee and settled in Vancouver. The couple’s son, Patrick George Seymour Bush, was born in 1932. George continued working at Canadian Pacific Express, retiring in 1949. At the time of his retirement, he owned two apartment blocks in Vancouver.

Pearl Mee was born in 1898. Pearl was the second child of Charles Mee and Annie Mee (née Seymour), early settlers in North Vancouver. After her marriage, Pearl did not work outside of her home.

Patrick George Seymour Bush studied at the University of British Columbia, graduating with a Bachelor of Laws degree in May 1958.
George, Pearl, and Patrick Bush are now deceased, dying in May of 1965, March of 1996, and August of 2015, respectively.
