Hart, Aaron

   English settler in Canada. Aaron Hart emigrated to New York from London in about 1752, and in 1760 served with the British troops as a commissary officer. He settled in Three Rivers, north-west of Montreal, where he acquired property and developed commercial interests. He played a leading role in the public life of the region, becoming postmaster of the second post office in British Canada, and raising a local militia to protect British interests against the French. His commercial initiatives helped Three Rivers develop into an important trading and commercial centre, and for more than a century his descendants remained associated with the town. On his death he was reputed to be the wealthiest man in British Canada.
