  • Note:
    There is a record that he visited or worked in the following places: in 1 926, Ozzie was in Nassau, Bahamas; Ozzie and Jean returned to or visite d Vancouver from San Juan, Puerto Rico in October 1952. Edward H.O. cho se banking as his career and in 1918 entered Royal Bank at Vancouver's C ordova Branch. He remained within the bank's B.C. branch network until 1 922 when he was moved to Nassau, Bahamas. For several years after he se rved at branches in the Dominican Republic and New York agency finally m oving on to Head Office in Montreal. From 1934 to 1939 he was assistant m anager at Port of Spain, Trinidad and returned to New York in 1940 as a ssistant agent (manager). In 1946, he was appointed assistant manager a t San Juan, Puerto Rico. He died August 3, 1955.

    The Thorne family has enjoyed a long history both with the Union Bank o f Halifax. Edward Lefferts Thorne (born April 23, 1854) joined the Unio n Bank as a junior on June 17, 1872 at Halifax. He was appointed accoun tant of the Halifax office on October 26, 1882 and cashier on March 11, 1 886. The title of cashier was changed to general manager on March 12, 1 899 and Thorne continued in that position until the Union Bank merged w ith Royal Bank on November 1, 1910. After the merger, he was appointed R oyal Bank's supervisor of branches for the Maritimes where he remained u ntil his retirement in June 1912, as a result of ill health. He died on N ovember 11, 1933 at the age of 79. I am uncertain of the family relatio nship between Edward L. Thorne and Edward H.O. Thorne but am almost cer tain that there was some link.
