Name of creator
Henry "Harry" Charles David Banister (1849-1898) ran hotels in Manitoba. He was born in Wales, and died in Carberry, Manitoba. He moved to Trois Rivières, Québec with his father as a boy. He married Amy Amelia Ward on an unknown date and they had at least one child, William. At thirteen he had returned to England, on the death of his mother. In circa 1868 Banister returned to Canada, and engaged with his father in railroading. He visited Manitoba in the early construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and was road-master for many years. He left the railways and entered the hotel business, opening the Brittania Hotel in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He later moved to Minnedosa and Portage la Prairie, both in Manitoba, conducting hostelries. In , he came to Carberry and took over Dufferin House hotel.
William Alfred Banister (1875-1956) was a businessman, Town Councilor (1904-1905), and Mayor (1921-1927) of Carberry, Manitoba. He was born in Newcastle, New Brunswick to Amy Amelia Ward and Henry Charles Banister. He married Florence Anna Carey (1878-1948) in 1898 and they had children Henry Charles David, Ethel, and Hazel Ivy Pearl (1903-1966). Upon the death of his father in 1899, Banister took over the family hotel business. Since 1912, Banister owned the Western Hotel, Ford Dealership, and Imperial Oil, all in Carberry.
Records have been transferred to the Carberry Plains Archives in 1988 from the Carberry Plains Museum, which had received the material from the Banister family.
