USSHER, Brandram Boileau, Canadian R. E. bishop, born in Dublin, Ireland, 6 August, 1845. He was educated at Delgany college, Wicklow, and in private schools. He early conceived a love for the study of medicine, but his father encountered financial losses and his studies came to an abrupt close. He was sent to New York, where he abandoned business at the end of a year and began the study of medicine in Washington and subsequently at the University of Michigan. Ten years were passed in Aurora, Illinois, where he practised his profession. Hearing a sermon by Dwight L. Moody, he determined to study for the ministry, and on 9 June, 1874, he was ordained deacon in Christ church, Chicago, by Bishop Cheney, of the Reformed Episcopal church. Two years later he became presbyter in Emmanuel church, Ottawa, Canada. In Canada he has held pastorates in Toronto and Montreal, where he has had charge of St. Bartholomew's church since 1878. He and his congregation withdrew from the jurisdiction of the Reformed Episcopal church in the United States and united their fortunes with the English branch of that body, otherwise called the Reformed church of England. The general synod in England elected Dr. Ussher to the episcopate, but he declined. Two years later he was re-elected, the Canadian synod choosing him as their bishop. On 19 June, 1882, he was consecrated in Trinity church, Southend, by Bishop Gregg and seven presbyters. He returned to Canada and assumed the duties of his large diocese, which includes Newfoundland.
