Memorable Manitobans: Thomas Charles Bulloch (1866-1949)

Pioneer, miller, grain merchant.

Born at Lanark, Ontario on 29 September 1866, he moved to Reston, Manitoba with his family at the age of 16. In 1895, he was living in Melita where he operated flour mills and organized the milling trade. He served as Mayor of Melita (1903) before moving to Winnipeg in 1907 when he entered the grain trade. A member of the Winnipeg Grain Exchange, he was vice president of the Prairie Pride manufacturing company, and on his retirement, organized the contracting firm Bulloch, Townsley Land Company. He was also involved in the milling trade at Crystal City. He and his wife Martha M. Brown of Melita, whom he married on 24 November 1897, shared five children: Thomas H. Bulloch, Robert C. Bulloch, Mrs. H. W. Hook, Mrs. J. Wilson, and Mrs. A. I. Coultry. On 17 March 1949, he died at Fort Garry and was later buried in Brookside Cemetery.
