Memorable Manitobans: Robert A. Scott (1869-?)

Farmer, real estate agent.

Born at Galt, Ontario on 22 January 1869, son of Andrew Scott and Christina Clark, he was educated at the Galt Collegiate Institute until, at the age of 13, he came to Manitoba with his brother J. J. Scott, and farmed at Darlingford for 14 years. In 1902 the brothers moved to Winnipeg and went into the real estate business while continuing to farm near Darlingford. In January 1910, the firm of Scott, Hill & Company was established to deal with real estate and home construction. He was also a director of the Darlingford Elevator Company and the Western Canada City and Town Lots Limited. On 14 December 1903, he married Willmott Ching at Darlingford. They had three children: Douglas Gordon Scott (b 1904), Jessie Louise Scott (b 1906), and Stuart John Scott. He was a member of the Canadian Order of Foresters, the Woodmen of the World, and St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church.
