Biographical history

Thomas Chandler Haliburton, author, judge, politician (b at Windsor, NS 17 Dec 1796; d at Isleworth, Eng 27 Aug 1865). Haliburton was a born Tory, whose father and grandfather had been lawyers and judges. An Anglican, he was educated at King's Collegiate School and King's College, Windsor, NS. Following graduation in 1815 he studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1820. Gregarious and ambitious, he soon founded a law practice in Annapolis Royal and established a sufficient local reputation to become an MLA in 1826. Three years later he was elevated to the bench. In 1854 he was appointed to the NS Supreme Court but retired 2 years later because of ill health. While a judge, and in addition to his family and social life and his writing, Haliburton was an active businessman. He relinquished direct participation in his business endeavours when he moved to England following his retirement from the bench. There Haliburton settled at Isleworth and in 1859 became the Tory MP for Launceston. He retired from politics in England in 1865.
