Memorable Manitobans: Samuel Code (1860-?)


Born at Listowel, Ontario on 22 August 1860, son of Samuel Code and Mary Ritchie, he attended the public schools of Trowbridge then apprenticed for four years as a miller. He then worked for several years as a miller in Ontario and Quebec before moving to Merrickville, Ontario where he rented a mill of his own. When it was destroyed by fire, he accepted a position as chief miller for the Arrow Milling Company at Birtle, Manitoba. He stayed there for three years before moving to Dauphin where he established the Dauphin Milling and Creamery Company. He also owned farm land in the vicinity of Dauphin.

On 15 May 1886, he married Mary E. Willis at Arnprior, Ontario. They had three children: Kathleen G. Code, William Willis Code, and Evelyn Code. He was a member of the IOOF and the Methodist Church. He served on the local school board.
