Biographical history

John Irvine was recruited in Orkney, Scotland in 1850 by the Hudson's Bay Company as a labourer for the Company's operations on Vancouver Island. He and his wife Jessie arrived in Victoria in 1851 aboard the HBC ship Tory. John Irvine worked at Craigflower Farm and later purchased land in the Cedar Hill area of Saanich where the family established a farm, Rose Bank. John and Jessie Irvine had six children: William (1851), Mary Anne (1853-1892), Jessie (1855), Christine (1858), John Irvine Jr. (1862-1948, Long Gun Jack) and Margaret (1865-1955).
