1811 - 1887

English:
Born in Charlottetown, a Father of Confederation, Gray served in the Imperial cavalry (1831-52) before entering politics. Elected in 1858 to represent Queen's County, he served as Premier of the province (1863-65) and played a prominent role in the Confederation debates. An ardent confederate, he presided over the Charlottetown Conference and attended the Quebec Conference. When the Island legislature rejected the Quebec Resolutions he left politics and reverted to military life. Adjutant General of the island Militia in 1867, he became, in 1873, Deputy Adjutant General of the 12th Military District. He died at Charlottetown.
