Biographical history

Jacob Hunter Todd (1829-1899) was born in Brampton, Ontario. He came to British Columbia in 1862 and opened a grocery business in Barkerville. He later purchased a number of fish canneries. He married Rosanna Wigley in 1873, and their family included two daughters, Mary Anne (d. 1950) and Rose (1885-1980). These sisters married, respectively, John Hebden Gillespie (1879-1929), a soldier and businessman, and Alexander Gillespie (1881-1948), a noted local rugby player and businessman. The Gillespie brothers formed their own real estate and insurance business, Gillespie, Hart and Todd, with their brother-in-law, Ernest Dain Todd, in 1911.
