Notes for Jacob Farrand Pringle from Fantan Fraser:
"On the 6th of October 1857, Jacob Farrand Pringle of Cornwall was elected Counties Clerk, a position he held for nine years. His father, James Pringle, was a soldier in the Regular British Army serving in Canada during the War of 1812-14. One morning, he [James] and two soldiers stopped at the home of Joseph Anderson, and were invited to stay for breakfast. There he met Ann Margaret, Mr. Anderson's daughter. It was evidently a case of love at first sight for in two weeks they were married. After the war was over, he returned with his Company to England and he then went to France, his wife accompanying him. While they were at Valciennes, Jacob Farrand was born on the 27th of June 1816. Soon afterwards, they returned to Canada and located at Cornwall. Their son was educated at the local Grammer School, mostly under Dr. Urquhart, studied law in the office of George S. Jarvis, was called to the Bar and admitted as an Attorney in 1838. He was in partnership with Mr. Jarvis for two years and then opened an office of his own account and continued practice until 1866. He was Mayor of Cornwall in 1855 and 1856, and became Crown Attorney and Clerk of the Peace in 1858. In November 1866, he was appointed Junior Judge and in April 1878, on the death of Judge Jarvis, was named Judge. He had married Isabella Fraser, third daughter of Colonel the Honourable Alexander Fraser, by whom he had ten children. Unfortunately, there is no descendant living here now which seems to be true of so many of the old Cornwall families. Judge Pringle died in 1901. A grandson, James Farrand Pringle, son of the late R.A. Pringle, K.C., is Acting General Manager of the Canadian National Railway (Central Division) at Toronto and was recently made a Vice-President of the Company."
