Robert Brodie

"Laird" Robert Brodie

  • b- May 31, 1809 , on the banks of the Chateauguay River, in Montreal, Ile De Montreal, Quebec
  • d- May 13, 1886 ,

Robert Brodie had a relative named Jane Brodie, b- ca 1819. Both Hugh and Jane were living with Robert and Mary,

In 1881, in Notre-Dame-De-Grace West, Hochelaga, Quebec. Robert inherited the estate of Kilbirnie, in Ayrshire, Scotland, and with it the title of “Laird”. He was ordained in the Presbyterian Church Nov 19, 1871. Founder of the firm Harvie & Brodie Flour Merchants. Resided at Coteau St. Pierre, Quebec.

Found reference to Parkyn & Brodie Flour Mills, Cote St. Paul. Recipes etc on the net today for Brodie Flour, probably still in operation today. Found an obituary June 21, 1890, for Mary Campbell Davison, wife of Thomas Brodie, of the firm W. & R. Brodie, flour merchants, Lower Town, age 48. Another article says W.R. Brodie flour. Turns out I think this is a different Brodie family. All Descendants of Charles Brodie. William and Robert the W.R.
