Samuel Smith MacDonell Esq

    SAMUEL SMITH MacDONELL

    Was District Clerk in 1850 and 1851, and was Reeve of the Village of Windsor from 1854 to 1857, and elected the first Mayor of Windsor in 1858, and again in the years 1864, 1865, 1866 and 1867; Warden of the County of Essex for the years 1855 and 1856. In 1871 he was appointed Crown Attorney and Clerk of the Peace. He died during the month of April, 1907.

Oddly there are many streets around town that bear the names of prominent early residents, Curry, Crawford, Prince, Dougall, etc… but strangely there is no MacDonell street in Windsor… Seems strange that there is nothing honouring the first Mayor…

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
