Biographical history

Thomas Percival Harbottle was born in Lancashire, England on October 10th, 1878 to William Heffle Harbottle and Jessie Helen Harbottle (née Henderson). In 1902 he joined the South African Constabulary as an engineer, and was awarded the Queen’s South Africa Medal with clasps for Cape Colony, Orange Free State, and Transvaal. He left the SAC in early 1903 with the intention of living in Pretoria. In August, 1905, he received admittance to the Freemason lodge of the Transvaal in Johannesburg.

In 1910 he immigrated to Canada and moved to North Vancouver. In 1912 he married Jane Baynes, who he had brought over from England the year previous. In 1914 the couple had their only child, a son, Jeffery Percival Harbottle. Thomas died on October 30th, 1972, at the age of 94. He was predeceased by his wife by one year.

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. Throughout his life Thomas was involved in many civic organisations in North Vancouver; including the Free Masons, the North Vancouver City and District Property Owners Association, and the City of North Vancouver (he was elected alderman for the City of North Vancouver in 1933.)
