Memorable Manitobans: Henry John “Harry” Marshall (1840-1911)

Market superintendent.

Born at Bombay, India on 29 February 1840, son of an army officer, he came to Canada in 1850 with his father, settling first in Toronto, later in Fergus, Ontario, where he was a carpenter. He and his wife came west in July 1871, and farmed in the Springfield district for several years. There were thirteen children. He later moved to Winnipeg, and in 1882 entered the service of the City as superintendent of the city market, in which position he remained until his death on 3 May 1911.
