The Hon. Frederick William Torrance, M.A., Judge of the Quebec Superior
Court, is son of a Scotsman, who was a merchant at Montreal. Judge Torrance
was born in that city in July, 1823. His preliminary education was received
at Nicolet, but he early repaired to Edinburgh, where he took his degree of
M.A., in 1844, with honours both in classics and in mathematics. He had
previously attended courses of lectures at Paris, with the apparent design
of practising medicine. He returned to Canada, however, and studied law
under Messrs. Fisher & Smith‹the latter of whom was subsequently
Attorney-General for Lower Canada. Having been called to the bar in 1848,
Mr. Torrance practised his profession in Montreal or its vicinity for twenty
years, and was made Queen¹s Counsel in 1867. Judge Torrance had also to do
with the establishment of the Lower Canada Jurist, and was its manager
during the first four years. In addition to that, Mr. Torrance was lecturer
on Roman Law at McGill University. He is a most industrious and careful
teacher, and enjoys the thorough respect of the profession. He has never
entered the political arena, and has always worked either on the bench or at
the bar, purely as a member of the profession. The degree of B. C. L. was
conferred upon him in 1856, by McGill University, and since 1870, he has
been one of its Governors. In 1865, he undertook the important duty of
enquiring into the raid at St. Alban¹s, which resulted in the payment to the
Americans of the money plundered from the Vermont Bank. Mr. Torrance was
appointed a Judge of the Superior Court in August, 1868. Frederick William Torrance married Laura Genevieve Hensley, daughter of Alexander Culbertson Hensley. Frederick William Torrance was born in 1823 at Montreal, Canada.
