In San Francisco.
Volney Valllancourt Ashtord was
born at Port Hope, Ontario, Canada.
His ancestors were of fighting stock
dating back to the Anglo-Saxon con

vice as a volunteer In Cunada. When
jo left Canuda for iluwnil In 1884 he
.-nnked on the nrmy list as captain and
jrevet major of cavalry.
In Honolulu V. V. Ashford associated
almsclt in law practice with his
younger brother Clau-uce W. When

formed in the winter ot 1880-7, V. V.
Ashford succeeded Win. Aldlrch In

against royal prerogative under that

Morson ot Ashfoid. The Cabinet ad

4lalmed tho personal appointing power
over thnt office. Tlicio wero days of
icnso anxiety over tho liability of on

Colonel Ashford was later cast aside
by tho party that had mado so much

he was banished from the Islands and
had lived In San Fiaucisco ever since
