Memorable Manitobans: Peter Pangman (1744-1819)

Fur trader.

Born in New Jersey, he was active in the fur trade out of Michilimackinac by 1767. In 1773 he came to York Factory to seek a shipping route to England but was sent packing by the Hudson's Bay Company. He subsequently moved to the Saskatchewan River, where he spent most of his fur-trading career before retiring from the North West Company in 1793. He died on his seigneury in Mascouche, Lower Canada.
