Memorable Manitobans: Alfred Stott (1873-?)


Born in Westmoreland County, England on 11 March 1873, son of George and Hannah Stott, he emigrated to Canada at an early age with his widowed mother and siblings, where his mother bought 320 acres of farmland in Section 3, Township 11, Range 18. He worked in several jobs, as a cattle herder, drugstore worker, and hay baler. He also worked on the family farm. He later bought and operated 640 acres in Section 34, Township 10, Range 20 near Brandon. On 9 August 1905, he married Cassie Durnin. They had four children: George A. Stott, Stanley D. Stott, Francis P. Stott, and Evelyn H. Stott.
