Thomas Chandler Haliburton

Author Code: OTCH

Born: Dec. 17, 1796 - Windsor, Nova Scotia

Died: Aug. 27, 1865 - Isleworth, London, England

Educated at University King's College, Windsor, Haliburton graduated in 1814 and traveled to England in 1816. There he married Louisa Neville and they returned shortly thereafter to Nova Scotia. In 1819, Haliburton was admitted to the bar and in 1821 moved to Annapolis Royal where he practiced law until 1830. In 1823, he published General Description of Nova Scotia. From 1826 to 1829, he was a member of the assembly in Halifax , representing Annapolis County. In 1829, he published Historical and Statistical Account of Nova Scotia, a much-praised work. On his father's death, he took his place as Judge of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas for the Middle Division of Nova Scotia. Haliburton gained international fame for his Clockmaker series and the character of Sam Slick. Published in 1836, 1838 and 1840, these works of a highly satirical nature were extremely popular throughout the English-speaking world. In 1856, Haliburton retired and moved to England and, having lost his first wife in 1840, married Sarah Williams. In 1859, he was elected to Parliament as the Tory representative for Launceston in Cornwall and held the position until the year of his death. His other works include The Bubbles of Canada (1839), The Attache: or Sam Slick in England (1843-44), The Old Judge, or Life in a Colony (1849), The English in America (1851), Rule and Misrule in English America (1851), Sam Slick's Wise Saws and Modern Instances (1853) and Nature and Human Nature (1855).
