A county in Ontario, on the St. Lawrence. Named after the
famous glen in Inverness, Scotland. Many Scottish Highlanders left their
native country after the battle of Culloden in 1746, and emigrated to
America. They were all intensely loyal, and when the Revolution broke
out many moved north into Canada, settling on the Niagara frontier, the
bay of Quinte, and the banks of the St. Lawrence. From the latter
settlement sprang the present Glengarry County. In 1804-1805 Bishop
McDonell obtained several grants of land in the district for the
Highlanders of the disbanded Scottish Glengarry Regiment, and for
twenty-five years promoted the interests of the colonists. He raised, in
1812, the Glengarry Fencibles Regiment, which rendered valuable service
during the war. =Bib.=: Macdonell, Sketches Illustrating the Early
Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada.
