Scope and content

William Headridge (1887-1959) was an attendant at Essondale Hospital and became the chief steward in 1940. William was born in Alloa, Scotland and immigrated to Canada in 1913. He started at Essondale Hosptial that year. He married Ida May Healey (1896-1978) in 1915 and they lived in likely Cottage 118 on Essondale grounds. They had three children, May Jean (Billie) Headridge (1916-1962), John Morris (Jack) Headridge (1919-1989) and Gordon McKay Headridge (1920-2000). After William became chief steward, the family moved into Cottage 110.

This file contains Headridge's diary, correspondence, and military, pension and financial records. Notably it includes photographs of the Headridge family and Essondale Hospital, and also contains a photo album labelled "Headridge album 194-?". These photographs depict Ida May's extended Healey family (originally from Manitoba), vacations to Revelstoke, B. C., the Headridges wearing their army uniforms in preparation of the Second World War, as well as many unknown friends and family to the Headridges. A series of photographs depict the children of Billie Headridge, namely Brian Bovet, and likely the unnamed daughter of Gordon Headridge.

General note

Many of the printed photographs were originally a part of the photograph album but fell out prior to transfer to the archives. The archivist supplied much of the identifying information by cross-referencing the individuals found in the prints and negatives to to the album. The archivist completed some genealogical research to determine the individuals to the best of their ability; however many individuals undoubtedly remain unnamed.
