Memorable Manitobans: Robert Longmoor (?-?)

Fur trader.

Probably born in Edinburgh, Scotland, he joined the Hudson's Bay Company in 1771. He moved inland in 1774 and helped establish the trading posts on the Saskatchewan River. From 1787 to 1792 Longmoor was second-in-command at Churchill, and in 1793 he became superintendent at York. He later acted as master of the Swan River District, and he retired in 1810. He died on his farm near Montreal.
