Memorable Manitobans: Harold Sidney Parker Edwards (1876-1964)
Born at Richmond, England on 24 February 1876, he emigrated to Canada in 1893 and homesteaded in Manitoba for five years before enlisting in the first Canadian military contingent to serve, for two years, during the Boer War in South Africa. Returning to Winnipeg, he became involved in real estate transactions, in 1907 becoming secretary of the Hugo Ross Realty Company. On 20 October 1902, he married Amy W. Patterson, daughter of George Patterson. They had two children: Richard S. P. Edwards and Frances A. Edwards. He was a member of the Adanac Club, St. Charles Country Club, and Winnipeg Golf Club. He later moved to British Columbia where he died at Vancouver on 2 September 1964.
