Memorable Manitobans: Robert Munroe (c1822-1891)

Farmer.

Born in Scotland, he came to Canada with his parents George Munroe and Anne Matheson at the age of 10, settling on a farm on lot 36 at Kildonan. He married Christina Fraser, sister of William Fraser, in 1856 and four years later moved to his own farm on lot 89. They had nine children: George Fraser Munroe, James Munroe, Donald Munroe, Alexander Munroe, John W. Munroe (?-1883), Ann Munroe (wife of John Henderson), Marion Munroe (?-1854), Marion Munroe (wife of James Penrose), and Barbara Munroe (?-1910, wife of F. A. Allardyce). He died at his home at Kildonan on 7 February 1891.
