Description

After last year's success, Wentworth Villa is offering a repeat of the Martha B. Ella and Wentworth Villa: the Life of a Victoria Pioneer lecture.

Martha Ella lived in Wentworth Villa from 1863-1911. Built in 1863 for Captain Henry Bailey Ella, his wife Martha Beeton Ella (née Cheney), and Ann Blinkhorn (Martha's aunt), the Villa is a Victoria designated Heritage House and one of the oldest wooden residential buildings in British Columbia. These pioneers were amongst the earliest arrivals at Fort Victoria; Ella in 1847 as 2nd Mate on the Hudson's Bay Company vessel Mary Dare, Martha Cheney and the Blinkhorns in 1851 aboard the Tory.

Mark and Michael Hawkes, great, great grandsons of the Ellas, will present a personal account of this pioneer Victoria family with selected historical information, old and recent images, and family stories.

You may book your seats online, emailing us at info@wentworthvilla.com or by calling 250-598-0760.
