History

Thomas Percival Harbottle married Jane Baynes in North Vancouver in 1912, after immigrating to Canada in 1910/11. In 1914 they had their first and only child, a son, Jeffery Percival, who was born on January 20, 1914. Thomas’s brother Arthur also lived in North Vancouver, he died in 1948. Jane Harbottle died in 1971, and Thomas died just over a year later in 1972. Jeffery didn't marry, and had no children, he died in 2009.

Thomas (or Tom) was involved in the community for most of his life, taking part in a variety of civic activities and even serving as an alderman for the City of North Vancouver in the 1930s. Thomas Harbottle owned and operated Harbottle's Jersey Products, the North Shore’s first milk delivery service, until the sale of the business in 1942. Jeffery also worked for the family business for 8 years, until 1940.

Jeffery traveled extensively and was self-employed for most of life, owning a logging company, a fishing boat, a steamship, and commercial rental properties. Jeffery was fascinated with mechanical equipment, and between his love of steamships, railways, and classic automobiles he was constantly involved in working with or restoring various pieces of equipment. After the sale and repowering of the M.V. Reliant he received the L6 Union engine in pieces and rebuilt it to working condition. He also discovered and restored a Diamond T truck he had driven for the family dairy business in the late thirties. Both items were donated to the NVMA.
