Notice biographique

Thomas William Hall and Maude Hall (nee Edmundson) were born in West Hartlepool, County Durham, England in 1883 and 1882, respectively. They received their teaching certificates in England. Thomas Hall immigrated to Canada in 1911 with Maude following in 1912. They were married on November 9, 1912 in St. Mary’s Church in Vancouver. The Halls moved to Prince Rupert before settling on Vancouver Island in 1913. Their first home in Saanich was “Queen’s Grove” at 144 Loenholm Road. Thomas Hall served overseas during WWI with the 103rd Battalion “The Timberwolves” and was injured in Flanders. Upon his return to Canada, Thomas Hall became the Principal of George Jay School and was later the Saanich Inspector of Schools. Maude Hall was active in both the I.O.D.E and the Red Cross. In the 1930s, the Halls purchased land at 1248 Burnside Road West and built Stranton Lodge, designed by local architect Hubert Savage. They developed a showpiece garden in the wooded 8.07 acres with the assistance of local nurseryman and designer Arthur Lahmer. Thomas Hall died in 1961. Maude Hall continued to live at Stranton Lodge until 1973 when she sold the property to the Municipality of Saanich. Maude Hall died in 1985 at the age of 103 at the James Bay Lodge nursing home in Victoria. The Stranton Lodge property was added to the 10-acre Knockan Hill Park. In 1992, the building and grounds were given heritage designation. The home and gardens are managed by the Saanich Heritage Foundation in cooperation with the Friends of Knockan Hill Park Society.
