Ancestors of Cedric and Brendan


Charles William Buchanan Dr. [Parents] 1 was born 2 on 23 Feb 1810 in Omagh, County Tyrone, Ireland. He died 3 on 25 Oct 1876 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He married Margaret Gowan in 1836. Charles was employed as Medical Doctor.

The following is an extract from W.P. Buchanan's 1931 family publication "Archibald Buchanan (1748-1836) Bears and Forbears":-

Chas. Wm. Buchanan, M.D., 1810-1876, was the only one of the four brothers that reached a profession. Was also reputed to have more of the milk of human kindness than the majority of the family. His older sisters idolized him. His wife was a sister of Col. Ogle R. Gowan, possessed of courage and fidelity, and a most suitable partner for a young doctor in a new country. He was admitted on examination to membership, Royal College of Surgeons, London, July 15, 1831, and on Augt. 1, 1832, received his M.D from Glasgow University. He was assistant for a time in the Omagh Hospital, and had an attack of Cholera (then epidemic) Decr. 25, 1832, but a strong and healthy body helped by active measures, enabled him to make a quick recovery. He had, however, a longing for the Colonies, prompted possibly by correspondence with his brother Robert, so finally set out for Canada, remained for a time in Quebec, next Brockville, Ont., and finally Toronto, Ont. where he spent the remainder of his life. He stood high professionally, and enjoyed a large practice in the city of his adoption, of which he was also City Coroner for many years. His brother Robert and he corresponded at intervals during his entire life, and his daughters told the writer of the esteem he always had for this brother. Physically he was considerably taller than any of his three brothers. He rounded out a useful life, but unfortunately died comparatively early-twenty years short of the record of his brother Robert.

Dr. Buchanan died May 20, 1922.

The obituary in part, from the Toronto Daily Star, of May 20, 1922 is as follows

"Toronto has lost an honoured citizen, a prominent Orangeman, one of her oldest practising physicians, and a great gentleman, in the person of Dr. Charles William Buchanan, who died early this morning at his residence, 715 Bloor Street West. The late Dr. Buchanan came to Toronto with his father, also Dr. C. W. Buchanan, seventy-six years ago. He was then seven years old, being born in 1839, in Brockville, Ontario, in the home of his distinguished uncle Ogle Gowan, founder of the Orange Order in Canada. Fifty seven years ago, with the class of 1865, the late Dr. Buchanan, graduated in medicine from the University of Toronto. He was also a graduate of Royal Military College, then established in Toronto, and was selected as military instructor at the time of the Fenian Raid. His half century of unselfish devotion to his fellows leaves him now mourned by a host of friends and admirers with a sincerity which only great qualities can inspire.

The deceased has long been prominent in Orange circles being a member of L. 0. L. 2018 and of King Solomon Royal Black Preceptory 344. He has had the unique distinction that his mother's brother fought as a lieutenant at the battle of Waterloo.

Dr. Buchanan returned to Toronto in 1909 and has lived here quietly since then. He is survived by his widow, Margaret Jane Willoughby; three daughters: Mrs. G. T. Somers, Mrs. F. L. Somers, and Mrs. H. A. Halbert, all of Toronto; one son, C. W. Buchanan, of McLean's Magazine; and one sister, Mrs. Wm. Dineen Senr.

The funeral service will take place on Monday afternoon at two o'clock to Forest Lawn Mausoleum."
