Ogilvie in Canada: Pioneer Millers, 1801-1951
Abstract
A history of the Ogilvie family and the development of the Ogilvie Flour Mills Company in Montreal. Archibald Ogilvie immigrated to Montreal from Scotland in 1800. Archibald's son, Alexander, erected a grist mill at Jacques Cartier, Quebec in 1801, moving in 1811 to Montreal where he established a new milling venture. Alexander's sons, Alexander Walker and John, took over, and the company name was changed to A. W. Ogilvie & Company in 1855. A third son, William Watson Ogilvie, joined them in 1860, completing a triumvirate that was to administer the family enterprise for 40 years.
