Memorable Manitobans: Ernest Bottomeley (1869-?)


Born at Manchester, England on 29 May 1869, son of William Bottomeley and Sarah Nuttall, he worked for a time in a store before immigrating to Canada and enrolling in the Manitoba Medical College, from which he graduated in 1895. He established a medical practice at Dauphin, Manitoba. In 1899 he married Laura Hoy (?-1900) with whom he had a daughter, Tannice Bottomeley. He married a second time, in 1907, to Myrtle Beardsley, of Ellsworth, Wisconsin. They had two sons, William E. Bottomeley and John Nuttall Bottomeley. The family were members of the Anglican Church. He served on the local liberal association and was a member of the Dauphin town council. He was a member of the Masons, IOOF, and Sons of England.
