LAWRENCE, Charles, British general, died in Halifax, Nova Scotia, 19 October, 1760. He was a major in the British army when he was appointed, 19 October, 1749, a member of the council of Nova Scotia. The following spring he led a force against the Preach at Chigneeto, but they withdrew into the woods after burning their town. In the summer he returned, and built Fort Lawrence at the head of the Bay of Fundy. He administered the government after the retirement of Governor Hopson in 1753, and was appointed lieutenant-governor in 1754, and governor in 1756.
