Biographical history

Mercy Ann Coles, daughter of George Coles, was born on Prince Edward Island sometime between 1830 and 1850. Her father, a merchant and businessman, was also active in local politics, sitting first as a Tory and then as a reformer in the Prince Edward Island House of Assembly. Between 1851 and 1868, he served as the Island's first premier. Both he and his daughter Mercy attended the Quebec Conference in 1864.
