Amos Edwin Botsford
Birth: Sep. 25, 1804
Death: Mar. 19, 1894

Political Figure. The Hon. Amos Edwin Botsford was Speaker of the Senate of Canada. His grandfather, father and brother represented Westmoreland in the New Brunswick House of Assembly, each serving in turn as Speaker. Mr. Botsford was born in Saint John and educated in Sackville where he settled and took up farming. In 1833, he was appointed to the Legislative Council where he sat until Confederation. He served as senior Judge of Common Pleas for Westmoreland and held the rank of lieutenant colonel in the 2nd Battalion Westmoreland Militia. Senator Botsford, who had declined a request to form a government, was called to the Senate in 1867. Senator Botsford carried on the family tradition by serving the Senate on two occasions as Speaker, in 1872 to replace Speaker Cauchon and in 1880 to replace Speaker Macpherson. On 30 May 1881, he was appointed a member of the Privy Council. (bio by: RK)
