History/Biography
Ann Eliza (Annie) was born in August of 1861. After marrying R. Croucher, Ann moved her family to British Columbia in 1907. Their daughter Rose Croucher was born in January of 1895 and studied geometrical drawing using Blair’s Canadian Drawing Series workbooks. On on February 21, 1914, Rose Croucher and James Oakes Bancroft married in Vancouver. Together they had three children; James A. in 1916 or 1917, Rosie, then George E. in August of 1927. The Bancroft family were poultry farmers throughout the early 1900s, transporting their farmed eggs from Burnaby to the Hudson’s Bay Company Vancouver using the British Columbia Electric Railway system. Rose Bancroft also served as Secretary-Treasurer of the Central Park Poultry Co-op Association in the 1920s until her husband's death in 1930 at the age of 42. In the late thirties and early forties, while James A. Bancroft was stationed in Calgary with the Royal Canadian Air Force, his younger siblings lived together with their mother and grandmother at 1963 21st Avenue in Burnaby. Young Rosie Bancroft studied French and England’s history in Social Studies in 1937 and her brother George studied the seasons in General Science II in 1942. Grandmother Ann died in 1962 at the age of 99. Her daughter Rose died three years later at the age of 76.
