By signing this, you agree that Cornwall City Council should recognize Judge Jacob Farrand Pringle by naming the next new street after him. Honouring local historical characters such as Pringle assist in preserving Cornwall’s heritage, while showing the world that we have great pride in our past. Here are some of Justice Pringle’s accomplishments demonstrating his historical significance:
* 1837 - Judge Pringle served as a Private in the Rebellion of 1837. (He occupied the Old Fort at Coteau Du Lac, Quebec.)
* December 1838 - Pringle served as a Private, Corporal, and Sergeant in a company of artillery that his father had been authorized to raise. It disbanded in May 1839.
* Autumn of 1862 - Judge Pringle created and served as Captain in the Cornwall Volunteer Infantry Company. He kept this position until he was appointed Judge in 1866.
* He was mayor of Cornwall in 1855 and 1856.
* November of 1857 - Judge Pringle became Clerk of the County Council for Cornwall. (Which he held until 1866.)
* January 1858 - Judge Pringle became Clerk of the Peace & County Crown Attorney for Cornwall. (Which he held until 1866.)
* 1866 until 1878 - Juniour County Court Judge for modern day Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry.
* December 1870 - Judge Pringle was appointed Local Master of the Court of Chancery for Cornwall.
* 1878 - Judge Pringle was appointed Surrogate Judge of the Maritime Court.
* June 1878 - Judge Pringle was appointed Judge of the County Court for modern day Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry.
* Judge Pringle was also Cornwall's first historian. He wrote the first historical account of Cornwall and some surrounding areas, "Lunenburg or the Old Eastern District."
I believe the next time Cornwall is in need of a Street name, they should consider calling it “JF Pringle Street.”
