Biographical history

Fred and William Quick were born in New Zealand, immigrating to Vancouver Island in 1889. They were involved in the dairy business and owned the first purebred herd of Jersey cows. They bought 150 acres at West Saanich and Wilkinson Roads, and farmed for 35 years. Frederick became very involved in the public sector, becoming Reeve of Saanich in 1908, 1909 and 1913. Both brothers were instrumental in building the Municipal Hall at 4512 West Saanich Road. In 1909, William married Esther Carmichael, Esther was a founding member of the Royal Oak Women's Institute.
