William Ferriman Salsbury (1847-1938) was a native of Surrey, England. He came to Canada in 1870 and was involved in the management of the Grand Trunk Railway of Canada until 1881, when he joined the financial staff of the Canadian Pacific Railway. He came west to Port Moody and served as treasurer of the Pacific Division of the CPR from 1886 to 1912. In Vancouver he served as alderman for Ward I, in 1893-1894, and was involved in many community projects. His son, Frederick Thurston Salsbury (1880-1953) served as manager of the Bank of British North America in Dawson, Yukon, for many years. After his return to Vancouver, Frederick Salsbury took an active interest in sports, especially cricket and rowing.
