- Born 28 November 1796, fourth son to John MUNROE of Kirkton, Captain in the Sutherland Militia; entered the army in 1811, as an Ensign in the 89th Regiment; 1813 promoted to Lieutenant in the 49th Regiment and carried the colours at Chryslers Farm for which he received a medal and was wounded. He was also present at Plattsburg and Lundys Lane. He was placed on half-pay on the 25th of March, 1817, from the 103rd Regiment, but on the 25th of December, 1838, was again placed on full pay as Lieutenant in the Royal Newfoundland Veterans, and when the Royal Canadian Rifles were formed he obtained a company in 1846. He soon after exchanged into the 2nd Regiment of Foot, or Queens, and retired by sale of his commission in 1848. In 1859 he was appointed Surveyor of Customs at Galt, Ontario, an office which he held for the remainder of his life. He was for several years President of the Galt and Hamilton Highland Societies, and it was largely owing to his patriotic exertions that the fine and striking monument, on which his name appears as hon. secretary, was erected at Queenston to the memory of Sir Isaac Brock; 1st marriage to Marjory GEDDES, (2 children); 3d marriage to Margaret RAMSAY (daughter of John CROOKS, Niagara, Canada) (no children); died at Galt, Ontario, 12 February, 1868, aged 71 years, where his widow, now deceased, survived him for several years.
