Memorable Manitobans: Henry Edward Chaplin (1876-1935)

Educator.

Born at Rumford, England on 19 January 1876, he came to Canada around 1883 and settled at Westbourne. Two years later, he began a life-long career as a teacher, working at Stonewall and several other places. He served as Principal of Headingley School (1903-1905), Roland School (1905-1908), and Stony Mountain School (1908-1910). He retired to Winnipeg in 1926. On 27 November 1888, he married Alice Jane Garrioch at Westbourne. They had two daughters. He died at his Winnipeg home, 398 Charles Street, on 11 December 1935 and was buried in St. John’s Cemetery.
