Memorable Manitobans: Anthony Beale (c1664-1731)

Hudson’s Bay Company Governor.

Beale first joined the HBC in 1678 as an apprentice, and he returned in 1687. He was captured and imprisoned by the French on several occasions over the next few years. He rose gradually through the ranks at Albany Fort, becoming governor in 1705. His contract expired in 1714, and he was subsequently hired for lesser positions after 1718 until his death.
