Memorable Manitobans: Alvey Morden (1813-1891)

Pioneer, farmer.

Born 1813 in Prince Edward County, Ontario of United Empire Loyalist stock, his family was one of the area’s earliest settlers, clearing the forest and establishing farms. He brought his family to Manitoba in 1874, leaving Walkerton, Ontario on 1 May and arriving in Winnipeg on 12 July. They left Winnipeg on the Hudson Bay trail and took up a homestead on Section 5, Township 3, Range 5, where the Town of Morden now stands. He was married to Francis Hutchinson. They had several children, including Wilmot Freeman Morden.
