Notice biographique

Lewis Peter Fisher was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, in 1820. He was the son of Peter Fisher and Susanna Williams and the grandson of Lewis Fisher, a Loyalist, who arrived in New Brunswick with L.P. Fisher's father in 1783. Lewis Peter Fisher read law in the office of the Honourable L.A. Wilmot and later his brother Charles. In 1841, Fisher was admitted to the bar and in 1845, he moved to Woodstock where he formed a partnership with R. K. Jones. This partnership continued until 1875 when Fisher joined Allison Barlow Connell. They remained partners until Fisher's death in 1905.

Lewis Peter Fisher was elected as Woodstock's first mayor in 1856, after the town's incorporation, and held this position for 21 years. Fisher was also a superintendent of the Methodist Sunday School for 25 years.

L.P. Fisher married Mary C. de Mille (b. 1826), daughter of Rufus de Mille of Hampton, Kings County in 1850. L.P. Fisher died in 1905 leaving a will that provided for the construction of a high school, library, vocational school, and hospital, to be built in Woodstock only after his wife's death. Mary Fisher died in 1910.
