Biographical history

John and Florence Vantreight emigrated from Dublin to Saanich in 1884 and settled in the northeast corner of Gordon Head. When John died in 1896, the eldest son Geoffrey took on the responsibility for the family and farm. Geoffrey Vantreight and his brothers Sydney and Edgar grew strawberries. In 1914 Geoffrey Vantreight married Maud Bartholomew. Geoffrey Vantreight obtained daffodil bulbs from W.T. Edwards in ca. 1915, the beginning of the crop for which the Vantreight family would become known.
