Armand-Francois-Marie De Charbonnel
Birth: Dec. 1, 1802
Death: Mar. 29, 1891

Religious Leader. A native of Monistrol-sur-Loire, France, de Charbonnel served as the Archbishop of Toronto, Ontario, from 1850 until he resigned in 1860. A member of a noted French noble family, he was the first French and non-English priest to hold that post. Ordained a Priest of the Order of friars Minor Capuchin in 1825, de Charbonnel immigrated to Canada in 1839. He served as a priest in Montreal soon after arriving, but then went to Toronto in 1847. After his resignation in 1860, de Charbonnel returned to his native France as a member of the Capuchin Order, and served there as the Titular Bishop of Sozopolis Haemimonto (1869 to 1880). Shortly before his death, in Crest, France, he was given the title of Bishop Emeritus of Toronto. Some of his achievements include helping to establish St. Michael's College in Toronto, the House of Shelter for the sick, aged, and orphaned persons, instituting the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Toronto, and establishing the Toronto Savings Bank. (bio by: K)
