First Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada 1791-1796

Here at Niagara on September 17, 1792
he presided over the first
representative assembly
of this province.

His genius foresaw the greatness of
this country and he threw himself
into its building with ardour and
enthusiasm. By his exalted aims, his
conspicuous integrity, his tireless
industry and unflagging fortitude
he brought courage to the hearts
of the early settlers and led them
to carve a civilization out of a
wilderness. In all this he was
unfailingly helped by his wife

Elizabeth Posthuma Gwillim

who like her husband has left the
impress of her spirit and her
name on the letters and locations
of this province. Her diaries and
drawings give an authentic record
of the life of the period and the
aspect of the land
