Title
Montreal’s Scottish Community, 1835-65: A Preliminary Study
Abstract
An examination of Montreal's Scottish Presbyterian churches and the Saint Andrew's Society. The author points out that most of the available literature reinforces the popular perception of the Scots in Montreal in the nineteenth century as a prosperous group of merchants and businessmen, but in reality very little is known about the Scottish community in Montreal. Because there is little information available to the contrary, one might assume by implication that this group of successful Scots was more or less united by common values, religious beliefs, and ideals. This was certainly true of a select group within the community but, the author argues, does not describe the majority of this ethnic population.
