As part of our Vancouver Island Masonic History Project, with its sections on Vancouver Island Cemeteries – Masonic Interments and Deceased Brethren, here is a page on Charles E. Stallard, a Past Master of Vancouver & Quadra Lodge, No.2, who is buried in Ross Bay Cemetery, Victoria, B.C.
At present we have little information on Worshipful Brother Charles E. Stallard. We know he was born in London, U.K. and that he came to Victoria about 1885, aged about 23. In Victoria he worked as a plumber. This information was in his obituary (see below).
He was a member of Vancouver Quadra Lodge, No. 2 and had served as Worshipful Master of that Lodge.
We will post more information about Wor. Brother Stallard as we uncover it.
Here is some information on Wor. Brother Charles Stallard taken from his obituary in the local newspaper:
“Death of C.E. Stallard – Charles E. Stallard died at an early hour yesterday morning, as the result of an acute attack of inflammatory rheumatism. He was a native of London, Eng., aged 38 years, and had resided here for 15 years, working as a plumber. The funeral will take place at 2:30 this afternoon from the Masonic Temple, the deceased having been a past master of Vancouver-Quadra Lodge, No. 2.”
