Samuel Wentworth Monk

Monk, Samuel Wentworth (1792-1865), prothonotary of the court of Queen's Bench, Montreal (1815-65), was born at Windsor, Nova Scotia , on May 3, 1792, the third son of Major Monk and his wife, Elizabeth Wentworth, and the nephew of Sir James Monk. He was called to the bar of Nova Scotia in 1813; but in 1815 he was appointed, through the influence of his uncle, prothonotary of the court of King's Bench, Montreal, and this post he occupied until his death, at Montreal, on March 13, 1865, fifty years later.
