CHURCH, Levi Ruggles, Canadian statesman, born in Aylmer, 26 May, 1836. He is a grandson of Jonathan Mills Church, who, at the beginning of the Revolutionary war, espoused the royalist side, and was taken prisoner in 1777. Subsequently he effected his escape to Canada, and ultimately settled at Brockville. Levi Ruggles Church was educated at Victoria University, Cobourg, graduated in medicine at Albany medical College, and at McGill University, where he took primary, final, and thesis prizes. He afterward studied law, was admitted to the bar of Lower Canada, and was appointed queen's counsel in 1874. On 22 September, 1874, he was appointed a member of the executive council of Lower Canada, and was attorney general from that date until transferred to the treasurership on 27 January, 1876. He held the latter office until the ministry was dismissed by the lieutenant governor, Lue Letellier de St. Just, in 1878. During the summer of 1876 he visited England on financial business, and successfully negotiated a large provincial loan. He is a member of the law firm of Fleming, Church & Kenney, Aylmer, and is a conservative in politics.
