1809 - 1889

Born in Charlottetown and called to the bar in 1831, Palmer was a member of the legislature (1835-60), and of the Legislative Council (1860-73). Between 1848 and 1873 he held several cabinet posts, including that of President of the Council (1859-63). A delegate to the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences, he opposed Confederation at the outset but, in 1873, threw his support behind the Union movement. Appointed Judge of the Queen's County Court in 1873, he became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Province in the following year. He died at Charlottetown.

Avocat et Père de la Confédération, Palmer est né à Charlottetown et fut admis au Barreau en 1831. Il fut député à l'Assemblée législative (1835- 1860) et conseiller législatif (1860-1873). Entre 1848 et 1873, il occupa plusieurs postes au sein du Cabinet, notamment celui de président du Conseil (1859-1863). Délégué aux Conférences de Charlottetown et de Québec, il s'opposa à la Confédération. En 1873, il révisa ses positions. Nommé juge à la Cour du comté de Queen's cette année-là, il devint juge en chef de la Cour suprême de la Province l'année suivante. Il mourut à Charlottetown.
