Col. Lionel Grimston Fawkes

1850 - August 25 1931

Island Arts and Crafts Society
Vancouver Exhibition
Provincial Exhibition

Col. Lionel Grimston Fawkes exhibited in the 1925 and 1926 annual art exhibitions held at the Vancouver Exhibition at Hastings Park. In 1928 he showed one watercolour in the Provincial Exhibition in New Westminster. The exhibition catalogue noted that he was a resident of Mayne Island, B.C.

An article in British Columbia History notes "then in 1925 Lord and Lady Fawkes moved to Mayne Island buying a 35 acre waterfront property with a fine building built by Warburton Pike." They renamed the building Culzean, after Lady Fawkes' childhood home in Scotland.

He also exhibited with the Island Arts and Crafts Society between 1924 and 1931.

He died on Mayne Island in 1931 at the age of 82, according to B.C. Vital Statistics on-line.
