OGS Toronto Branch Presentation: The Trial of William Brass

At 7:30 pm on Monday, Toronto Branch’s May presentation, The Trial of William Brass, is presented by Carol Ufford in person and online.

In 1837, Carol Ufford’s third great-uncle, William Brass, was charged with raping a young girl. His defense attorney was young John A. Macdonald. Using documents from the Haldimand collection, the Upper Canada Sundries, and contemporary newspapers, Carol will tell William’s story—his early life, what lead up to the trial, the trial, and the aftermath.
