Real estate and financial agent.

Born in Sussex County, England on 12 August 1881, son of Matthew James Stanbridge and Jane Clacy, he was educated in English Board Schools. He came to Manitoba in 1902 and began a career in the fire insurance business under the firm name of Stanbridge Brothers with his brother M. J. Stanbridge. Two years later, he began the real estate business of Stanbridge, McKee & Company, changing its name to the Stanbridge Realty Company in 1906. He also had a business interest in the Golden West Realty Company and the Suburban Realty Company.

On 29 April 1908, he married Samantha Matilda “Annie” Parker (1873-1963) of Winnipeg. They had two children: Olivia Mae Stanbridge (b 1909, wife of A. E. Hills) and George Parker Stanbridge (b 1910). He was a member of the Liberal party and the Congregationalist church. In 1911, he lived at 250 Morley Avenue, Winnipeg. Around 1938, he established a farm in the vicinity of Grosse Isle, Manitoba.

He died at Stonewall, Manitoba on 28 February 1968 and was buried in the Grassmere Cemetery.
