Farmer, hotelier.

Born in County Wexford, Ireland on 31 January 1830, son of John and Elizabeth Beaubier. The family emigrated to Canada in 1842 and settled in Leeds County, Ontario. He farmed in the area, and also near St. Marys, Ontario, for thirty years and operated a hotel at Park Hill for six years. He came to Manitoba in 1880 and, two years later, opened the Beaubier House at Brandon. He conducted the business until 1891.

On 26 October 1854, he married Elizabeth Jane Cathcart (1834-1932) and they had eleven children: three boys and eight girls, including David Wilson Beaubier. He was father-in-law of William J. Young.

He died at Brandon on 24 March 1915 and was buried in the Brandon Cemetery.
