Memorable Manitobans: John Suckling (1865-?)


Born in England on 7 September 1865, he emigrated to Canada in 1873 and arrived in Winnipeg in 1882. He was associated with the Stovel printing firm for many years. While visiting London, England in 1912, he and his wife Grace narrowly avoided passage on the maiden voyage of the Titanic. They moved to eastern Canada in 1916.
