PETER HUNTER: British soldier, b. in Scotland in 1746, d. in Quebec 21 August, 1805. He entered the army, and had attained the rank of Lieutenant-General when he was appointed in 1799 to administer the government of Upper Canada, succeeding Lord Semcoe, and made Commander in Chief of the forces in Canada. He was eminently successful in his administrations, and to his policy Canada is indebted for many proofs that probably it would otherwise never be known. His brother John (the celebrated anatomist) erected a monument to him in the England Cathedral of Quebec.
