Dates of existence


A. H. Lynch-Staunton, 1860?-1932, born in Hamilton, Ontario, was a member of the North West Mounted Police (NWMP) detachment sent to establish a horse breeding farm at Pincher Creek, Alberta in 1878. He took his discharge from the NWMP in 1880, and established the first cattle ranch in the district. Among the enterprises associated with his ranch was a butcher shop which supplied meat to the mining communities of the Crowsnest Pass. His descendants have continued to be active in ranching and political life in Alberta.
