ST. REAL, Joseph Remi Vallieres de, Canadian jurist, born in Markham, Upper Canada (or, according to some accounts, in Quebec), 1 October, 1787; died in Montreal, 17 February, 1847. He went to reside with an uncle in Quebec, where his aptitude for learning attracted the attention of Bishop Plessis, who took the boy to reside with him, and personally superintended his education. He afterward studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1812, and began practice in Quebec. In 1813 he was elected to the assembly for the county of China-plain, and at once allied himself with the Canadian party in the house, then engaged in a struggle for what they regarded as constitutional liberty. During the absence of M. Papineau on a mission in England, he was chosen speaker of the assembly, and during the administration of Sir James Kempt, in 1828, was appointed judge of the district of Three Rivers, where he remained for several years. Sir Charles Bagot appointed him chief justice of Montreal in 1842. From that time until his death he was infirm in health. In 1839 the governor of Canada, Sir John Colborne, had requested Judge De St. Real to grant a writ of habeas corpus in the case of Judges Panet and Bedard, suspended by Sir John some time before. Judge De St. Item refused, and was in consequence suspended from office, and suffered much loss.
