Biographical history

Hugh Buxton Lyall was born in Sutton West, Ontario in 1877, a third generation Canadian of Scottish descent. At the age of thirteen, he went to Regina, Saskatchewan and obtained employment with a grain company. In 1900 he came to Winnipeg and commenced a machine and foundry business which ultimately became Manitoba Bridge & Iron Works Ltd. His business interests included Dominion Tanners and Midwest Glass. He became a director of many companies and a member of the Canadian Committee of the Hudson's Bay Company. On moving to Little Britain, north of Winnipeg, in 1913, he became a warden of St. Thomas, Lockport, and superintendent of its Sunday School, positions he retained for over thirty years. He was active in the affairs of the Diocese of Rupert's Land as well. He died March 12, 1948 while chairing a meeting of the Vestry of St. Thomas in its Rectory.
