Memorable Manitobans: Horace Arthur Aylwin (1868-1932)


Born at Port Hope, Ontario on 27 May 1868, son of Horace Aylwin and Fanny Tracey, in 1884 he commenced a banking career as a junior clerk for the Bank of Hamilton. He came to Manitoba in 1897. By 1911, he was superintendent of western branches for the bank, based at Winnipeg. On 1 January 1902, he married Frances Charlotte Boyce (?-?) of Carman and they had three children: Horace Edwin Tracey Aylwin (1902-?), Frances Ethel Aylwin (1903-?), and Beatrice Marion Aylwin (1911-1915). In 1911, the family lived at 522 River Avenue, Winnipeg. He was a member of the Manitoba Club, Carleton Club, and Anglican church, and he enjoyed motoring. He died at Hamilton, Ontario on 3 July 1932 and was buried in the Hamilton Cemetery.
