Memorable Manitobans: Stuart Scott (1851-1941)

Businessman, municipal official.

Born at Roxburghshire, Scotland on 20 May 1851, son of Charles Scott and Ellen Oliver, the family emigrated to Canada in 1866 and settled at Middlesex County, Ontario. He came to Winnipeg during the spring of 1881 and, in partnership with John Gilchrist, worked as a builder, architect, and draughtsman until the spring of 1885 when he moved to Morden and continued the same line of work until 1891. At that time he entered the furniture and undertaking business, while also doing occasional design work, being responsible for the Morden-Stanley War Memorial in 1921.

On 22 April 1890, he married Annie McIntyre (1862-?) of Winnipeg. They had seven sons: Charles Scott (b 1891), Andrew Scott, Stuart McIntyre Scott (b 1893), Allan Scott (b 1898), Harry Scott (b 1900), Donald Scott (b 1902), and Hugh Scott (b 1903). He served on the Morden town council for two years and, in 1904, was elected Mayor of Morden. He was a member of the AF & AM (Belmont Lodge No. 13).

He died at Morden on 23 December 1941.
