Dates of existence


William Abraham Pridmore immigrated to Quebec from England in 1870 and later came to Victoria. He found work as a tallyman at Sayward Mill and received 100 acres off Burnside Road. Unable to show that he had made sufficient improvements to it, he lost the land but later regained it after becoming a champion race walker and winning enough cash to buy it back. In 1879, he married Hannah Atkins and they had six children. Their son, William Richard Pridmore married Hansina Bugslag in 1911, and the couple had 4 children. William Richard did various hauling work with his team of horses and was later Road Foreman of Ward 4 for Saanich. William Richard Pridmore died in 1948, and Hansina Pridmore died in 1950.
