Abstract
Originally from Ireland, John McCord (1711-1793) and his family emigrated to Quebec in 1760s. One of his sons, Thomas (1750-1824), established himself as a merchant in Montreal in 1791. He had two sons, John Samuel (1801-1865) and William King (1803-1858). John Samuel McCord was a lawyer and a circuit judge. He was also a lieutenant-colonel in the militia and the commander of the Montreal Volunteers during the Rebellions of 1837-1838. William King McCord served as a magistrate in Montreal and the superintendant and inspector of police in Quebec City. John Samuel married Anne Ross, a daughter of David Ross (1770-1837). Their son, David Ross McCord (1844-1930), a graduate of McGill University, was a lawyer and alderman in Montreal. He married Letitia Chambers (1841-1928). In 1919, David Ross McCord presented his extensive collection of artifacts to McGill University and in 1921 the McCord Museum was opened to house the collection.
