Memorable Manitobans: Frederick Henry Hesson (1858-1918)

Real estate agent.

Born at Stratford, Ontario on 17 June 1858, son of MP S. R. Hesson and Polly Hesson, he was educated at the Stratford public school. In 1882, he married Edith Emma Wade (1860-1909) at Detroit, Michigan and in time they had five children: Hilda Hesson, Rollin Wade Hesson (1885-1938), Frederick Leopold Hesson, Louisa Hesson (1889-?), and Ruth Hesson (1892-1964). He came to Brandon in 1882 and worked as a merchant and later as a real estate agent and customs collector. In 1892, his home on Nineteenth Street was designed and built by Frederick J. Chubb. The family moved to Winnipeg in 1901, lived at 211 Smith Street, and he was a member of the Adanac Club, Conservative party, and Anglican church. His recreations included all outdoor sports. He died at Middlechurch on 6 March 1918 and was buried in the St. John’s Cathedral Cemetery.
