|Description:||Simcoe was the First Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Upper Canada 1792-96.
Simcoe (1752-1806) an English army officer served during the American Revolution, convalesced in England and was elected to the British House of Commons in 1790 and on the passage of the Constitutional Act was appointed first lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada. Noted for his farsighted efforts in road building and encouraging immigration, Simcoe, however, sowed the seeds for future trouble with his strict views of church and state and his failure to allow the new forces in Upper Canada to operate freely.
