Memorable Manitobans: Frederick Ladlay “Fred” Bousfield (1865-1957)

Educator.

Born in England on 3 March 1865, he married Hannah Lloyd (c1968-1943) of Brewwood, Staffordshire, England. The couple had eight children: Stafford Ladlay “Staff” Bousfield (c1893-1925), Frederick Percival “Percy” Bousfield (1896-1916), Reginald Harker Bousfield (c1900-?), Constance Lowther “Connie” Bousfield (1903-2007, wife of Harold Crossin, daughter-in-law of A. L. Crossin), Lawrence Hodgson Bousfield (1907-1971), Freda Lloyd Bousfield (?-1937, wife of George Frederick Clare), Victoria L. Bousfield (wife of Douglas Wallace), and Doris Anne Bousfield (wife of Dr. Harold Frederick Thorlakson).

In 1912, the family moved to Canada in 1912 and settled at 844 Home Street in Winnipeg. He worked as an educator and taught in rural Manitoba schools, including Wycliffe School (c1915), Valley River School (c1918), Sifton School (1920-1921), Dand School (1921-1922), North Plympton School (1922-1923), Laurier School (1923-1924), and Ardal School (1924-1925). A long-time property owner at Winnipeg Beach, where he served as Chairman and Honourary Life President of the Winnipeg Beach Taxpayers Association, he returned to Winnipeg in the 1950s.

He died at Winnipeg Beach on 19 June 1957 and was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
