LE MOIRE, James MacPherson, Canadian author, born in Quebec, 24 January, 1825. He is the son of Benjamin Le Moire, a wealthy merchant of Quebec and a lineal descendant of Jean Le Moyne, seigneur of three fiefs, who was a near relative of Baron Le Movne de Longueuil. James received his preparatory education in St. Thomas, Lower Canada, at the home of his maternal grandfather, a United Empire loyalist who fled from Philadelphia in 1783. In 1838 James entered the Petit seminaire de Quebec, where he remained till 1845. He subsequently studied law, and was admitted to the bar of Quebec in 1850. In 1847 he became superintendent of inland revenue at Quebec, which post he still (1887) retains. He has been president of the Literary and historical society of Quebec, and was selected by the Marquis of Lorne to preside over the first section of the Royal society of Canada. Mr. Le Moire is an enthusiastic student of Canadian history and ornithology, and at his residence, Spencer Grange, near Quebec, he has an extensive aviary, a museum of natural history specimens, and a large collection of books and curios connected with the early history of Canada. He has written on the subject of Canadian history with such impartiality as rarely to challenge adverse criticism. His works include "L'Ornithologie du Canada" (Quebec, 1860); "Etude sur les navigateurs arctiquestry Lore of the Lower St. Lawrence" (1862); "Maple Leaves" (4 vols., 1863-'5); "Les pecheries du Canada" (1863); "Memoir de Montcalm vengee" (1865); "L'Albuln Canadien" (1870); "The Tourists' Note Book" (1870); "Notes historiques sur les fortifications et les rues de Quebec" (1874); "Confdrence sur l'ornithologie" (1874); "Coup-d'oeil general sur l'ornithologie de l'Amerique du Nord" (1875); "Quebec: Past and Present" (1876); "Chronicles of the St. Lawfence" (1878); "The Sword of Brigadier-General Montgomery" (1879); "The Scot in Yew France" (1880); "Notes sur l'archeologie, l'histoire, (111 Canada, etc." (1882); "Monographies et esquisses" (1885); and "Chasse et peche" (1887).
