Biographical history

Annie Robinson was born Annie Bull in 1901 in a house off Cherry Tree Bend in Saanich. In 1907, she moved with her family to the Manor House, a fieldstone house on Quadra and Beckwith, where her father Josiah Bull had a dairy farm. She attended the old Royal Oak School and later the Quadra Street School. In October 1917 she began working for the District of Saanich, as a "scribe" for the Tax Department at a salary of $65 per month. After 9 years she left to get married. In 1949, at the request of the Assessor Stan Green, she returned to work in the Waterworks Department and in Accounting. Annie Bull Robinson was employed by Saanich for over 21 years. She died in 1990.
