Saturday, April 13
The English in Early Montreal  (Lectures)
10:30 am
Briarwood Presbyterian Church Hall, 70 Beaconsfield Blvd, Beaconsfield
Speaker: Gillian Leitch, Historian and Genealogist
 
Although the English have always been a large percentage of Montreal’s English speaking population, the city’s English have been little studied and little understood. Since the Conquest, the English have played a crucial role in the city development. They created very English institutions that preserved their sense of belonging to both Montreal, England and the Empire.
 
This talk will discuss the English in Montreal through their institutions such as the Anglican Church, the St. George’s Society and other uniquely English Associations through the nineteenth century and into the twentieth century.
