Also see . . .  Sir William Fenwick Williams - Dictionary of Canadian Biography. Williams was an interesting example of a colonial-born son of a British military family. He had been a good soldier, with something of a colonial’s self-reliance and willingness to take on responsibility. He was firm as a rock when it came to duty, but he was never a slave-driver. However, one must not assume that, in the conventional phrase of the time, he lived and died “a gallant old soldier.” (Submitted on November 6, 2014, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
