Memorable Manitobans: Samuel Pritchard (1827-1913)


He was born at Kildonan and baptized at St. John’s church, 17 June 1827, the son of John Pritchard and Catherine MacLean Pritchard. He married Johanna Bannerman at Middlechurch on 25 May 1864. Pritchard taught in the school founded by his father, John, and moved it from Middlechurch in 1866 to make it an integral part of St. John’s College when that institution was revived. He served as an English master. He was ordained by Bishop Machray in 1866. He died at his home in Hibbing, Minnesota in 1913.
