Farmer, mail carrier.

Born in Manitoba on 20 June 1846, son of Samuel Foulds, brother of Sarah Foulds Camsell, he farmed and carried mail between Winnipeg and St. Francois Xavier for many years. On 14 October 1871, he married Charlotte Armstrong (1852-1926). They had ten children: Jane Ann Foulds (1871-1934), Aalid C. Foulds (1876-?), Cecilia M. Foulds (1879-?), Ada S. Foulds (1880-?), Charlotte Foulds (1883-?), Lawrence A. Foulds (1885-1967), Hubert Augustus Foulds (1887-1968), Mabel L. Foulds (1890-?), Wallace Wilfred Foulds (1892-1914), and Ernest Gordon Foulds (1896-1982). He died at his Winnipeg home, 1042 Palmerston Avenue (on the same lot where he was born), on 30 January 1922 and was buried in the St. James Cemetery.
