Charles Fisher was the Premier of New Brunswick, 1854-1861, a Father of Confederation, and a Member of Parliament of the first House of Commons of the Dominion of Canada. First elected to the New Brunswick legislature in 1837, he led the movement for responsible government in the 1840s and 1850s which succeeded in 1854 when he became premier. He participated in the Quebec conference of 1864 on Confederation and the London conference of 1866 where he helped to frame the British North America Act, Canada's constitution. He retired from politics in 1868 to become a Judge of the Supreme Court of New Brunswick. Charles Fisher was born in 1808 and died in 1880.

Charles Connell (1810-1873) and Anne Fisher (1810-1895) of Woodstock

Charles Connell stamp, 1860Anne Fisher, the daughter of Peter Fisher and Susannah Williams, married Charles Connell in 1835, a leading merchant of Woodstock. Connell was elected to the Legislative Assembly in 1846 and became Postmaster-General in Charles Fisher's government in 1858. Connell had the audacity to substitute his own likeness for that of Queen Victoria on a new issue of five-cent stamps in 1860 and had to resign from office in the ensuing uproar. The stamps are now a rare collectors' item. The voters of Carleton County did not hold it against Connell, re-electing him in 1864, 1865, and 1866 as a supporter of Confederation, and he briefly served in the colonial cabinet as Surveyor-General. He stood for election to the first Parliament of Canada in 1867 and won Carleton County "by acclamation". Connell was acclaimed again in 1872 but died the following year.

Matriarchs - Connell family womenConnell family "matriarchs", most likely successive generations of Connell family women. The elder woman on the right is quite possibly Anne Fisher (1809-1895), the wife of Charles Connell. If so, then the two younger women are possibly her two unmarried daughters Ella Sophia (b. 1849) and Annabella Alice (b. 1851). They do bear a resemblance to the pictures of Ella and Alice in the book A View of Woodstock: Historic Homes of the Nineteenth Century on pages 20 and 67, though the photographs are from a distance that makes this identification less than definitive. That leaves the young girl as a mystery since neither Ella or Annabella married before their mother's death in 1895. Anne Connell did have granddaughters through her three sons.

Lewis Peter Fisher (1821-1905) of Woodstock

L. P. FisherLewis Peter Fisher was the son of Peter Fisher and Susannah Williams. He studied law in the office of his older brother Charles, and was called to the bar in 1843, whereupon he removed to Woodstock to establish his own law practice. He was elected the first mayor of Woodstock in 1856 and held this office consecutively for twenty-four years. He was also appointed a Judge of Probate in 1865 and made Queen's Counsel in 1873. L. P. Fisher amassed a large fortune during his life, close to half a million dollars, and in his will he left $208,000 to establish a hospital, a public library, and two public schools in Woodstock. This ranked at the time as "the largest individual benefaction to any community in New Brunswick". He had married Mary Catherine DeMill in 1850.
