In the 1891 census a James Fitzsimmons (b about 1864) was living in Naniamo with his wife Catherine (nee Norris) (b about 1872). He was born in the USA to Irish parents. She was born in Wales. They were married on the 2 April 1890. In the 1901 census they were living in Burrard and his occupation is listed as a minor. They have 3 children: Gladys N (b 10 Mar 1891 ), Arieta (b 1 Jul 1893) and James A (b 7 Jul 1897).
