Memorable Manitobans: Bertram Hughes Campbell (1869-?)


Born in England on 9 June 1869, son of Bertram and Jane Campbell, he quit school at the age of 15 and spent some time on a sea journey to Indian and Australia. He then came to Canada and settled on a farm which he cultivated until moving to Brandon, Manitoba in 1901. Here he became superintendent of the Hanbury Manufacturing Company, eventually being promoted to yardmaster. He opened his own lumber business in 1912. On 8 December 1902, he married Lillian Margaret Martin at Brandon. They had two daughters: Jane Campbell and Margaret Campbell. The family resided at 323 Frederick Street, Brandon. He was a member of the IOOF and the Anglican Church.
