About Andrew Belcher

Andrew Belcher (July 22, 1763 – November 17, 1841) was a merchant, politician and justice of the peace from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Belcher's father, Jonathan Belcher was Nova Scotia’s chief justice from 1754 to 1776. He died when Andrew was young and his life was influenced by Alexander Brymer[1], a prominent Scottish-born businessman located in Halifax.

Belcher had many years as an important part of the Nova Scotia business and political community. After retiring to England he suffered serious financial setbacks due to some questionable investments and a recession. He died nearly destitute in Boulogne-sur-Mer, France.

One son, Edward Belcher brought some positive recognition to the family name as leader of an Arctic expedition to search for Sir John Franklin.
