Biographical history

Of Loyalist descent, Lewis Fisher was born 11 February 1827 to Henry Fisher (1780-1855) and his second wife, Rebecca (Brown) Lawrence (1793/94-1867). He married Elizabeth Moore, and they had no fewer than 4 children: Margaret Elizabeth (Fletcher, d. 1893), Emily, Frances Edith, and Alice (Greer). The Fishers lived in New Maryland, York County, where Lewis Fisher farmed and operated a general store. He was a parish councillor for a number of years and, in 1871, served as postmaster. In later years, he held the office of accessor of rates and taxes. Lewis Fisher died on 18 March 1897 and was buried in St. Mary The Virgin Anglican Church Cemetery in New Maryland.
