Memorable Manitobans: Ezekiel Evans (1856-1930)

Horse dealer, private banker, municipal official, Mayor of Brandon (1897-1898).

Born near Bowmanville, Ontario on 8 May 1856, he had his early education in public schools and married Elizabeth Little in 1879. The couple moved to Brandon, Manitoba in 1881, setting up a home in the Grand Valley area until flooding on the Assiniboine River forced them to move into Brandon. He was a city clerk from 1886 to 1890, when he became a private banker. He was a member of Brandon’s first city council, and a city alderman from 1892 to 1896. He was Brandon’s mayor from 1897 to 1898. He passed away in Summerland, BC on 15 May 1930.
