Memorable Manitobans: Thomas Lusted (1841-1904)

Baker, Click to enlargeMLA (1878-79).

Born in Kent County, England on 23 May 1841, he was described in 1872 as a carriage maker. He was Manitoba’s first baker.

In 1869 he was one of the most active of the Canadian Party in Winnipeg, and was taken prisoner when those inside John Schultz’s house surrendered to Louis Riel in December. He was incarcerated in Upper Fort Garry until February 1870 and upon his release was forced to leave the country. When he returned to Manitoba later that year, he was one of the ex-prisoner group who, with a few of the Ontario volunteers, actively sought revenge for past mistreatment by persecuting the Métis.

On 22 June 1863, he married Hester Emma Hadskis (1837-1907). They had ten children: Charles Weber Lusted (1864-1876), Laura May Lusted (b 1866), David Hugh Lusted (b 1867), Lenora Lusted (b 1869), Annie Lusted (b 1871), Joseph Thomas Lusted (1872-1876), Lizzie Emma Lusted (b 1875), Nettie Marion Lusted (b 1877), Thomas Charles Lusted (b 1880), and Walter Norman Lusted (b 1881).

He died at his home near Stonewall on 12 March 1904. He is commemorated by Lusted Street in Winnipeg.
