Memorable Manitobans: Thomas Leonard Hartley (1869-1952)

Lawyer.

Born at Haeywood, Lancashire, England on 13 November 1869, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas B. Hartley, he was educated at the Manchester Grammar School and Gigglewick. He came to Canada in May 1888 and farmed north of MacGregor until 1894. He was a law student at Portage la Prairie and Winnipeg before being called to the Manitoba Bar and enrolled as solicitor in November 1899. He practiced in partnership with R. A. Bonnar as Bonnar & Hartley until March 1908, and continued to practice until retirement in 1930. On 26 June 1906, he married Irene C. Hagarty (?-?) and they had two children: Herbert Hartley and Muriel Hartley. He was a member of the Manitoba Club and All Saints Anglican Church. In 1925, he lived at 120 Wilmot Place, Winnipeg. He died at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital on 22 July 1952 and was buried in the St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Cemetery.
