ANGLIN, Timothy Warren, Canadian statesman, born in Clonakilty County, Cork, Ireland, 31 August 1822. Emigrated to St. John, New Brunswick, in 1849, where the same year he established the "Weekly Freeman." He established the " Morning Freeman," a tri-weekly paper, liberal in politics, the organ of the Roman Catholics of New Brunswick, in 1851, and was its editor and proprietor until 1877. On the government permitting a prohibitory liquor bill to pass, Mr. Anglin went into opposition, and he has since been a conservative. In 1860 he was elected to the New Brunswick house of assembly by the city and county of St. John, which he represented until 1866, being the first Roman Catholic to represent that constituency. He was a leader of the opponents of confederation. In 1867 he was elected to the Dominion House of Commons for Gloucester County, and on 26 March 1874, was elected speaker of the house. He retained this office until the end of the session of 1877, when he resigned, his seat having been declared vacant through a breach of the independence of parliament act. He was reelected speaker 7 February 1878, and held the place till parliament was dissolved.
