Biographical history

John and Alice Wenman came to Victoria in 1912. They bought ten acres of land in the Gordon Head area of Saanich where they grew strawberries and daffodils. They had two sons who were notable local cricketers. Their son William Reginald Gower Wenman (Reg) married Evelyn Margaret Lytton, daughter of Claude and Ethel Lytton. The family home on Wenman Drive is on the Saanich heritage inventory.
