Allan Sir Hugh 1810-1882 Founder Of The Allan Line Of Steamships
Came to Canada from Scotland, 1826, and in 1831 entered the shipbuilding
firm of James Millar & Co., Montreal, of which he became a partner in
1835. In 1853 his firm began building iron screw steamships, and their
first vessel, the Canadian, made its first voyage in 1855. The
following year, with a fleet of four vessels, a regular service was
opened between Canada and England, with fortnightly sailings. In 1859
the fleet was increased to eight steamers, and a weekly service opened.
From these small beginnings, the Allan Line has risen to a foremost
place in transatlantic transportation. =Index=: (Sir John A Macdonald era) President of the
