    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: He started with J.L. Browne in 1891. The 1894 Vancouver directory listed him residing in that city at a hotel. Between 1892-1901 he was based in New Westminster as Welsh and Company. The 1899 directory also listed a C. Welsh in the Curtis-Armstrong Block, which may or may not be the same person. H.M. was married on 24 Nov 1897 to Annie Martin in New Westminster.

      In 1901, former career military officer John C. Cornish likely went to work for Welsh and probably assumed the business in 1903.
