Howell Fleming Law Firm fonds. -- 1817-1966. -- 4 m of textual records and other materials.

Biography / History

The law firm of Howell Fleming originated in the law practice of Stafford Frederick Kirkpatrick, a native of Ireland. Kirkpatrick emigrated to Canada and started practicing law in Cobourg, Ontario but since most of his clients were in Peterborough he established a practice in Peterborough in 1857. Kirkpatrick was the first full-time lawyer to establish a law firm in Peterborough. His first partner was Edward Armour Peck, Q.C. who joined the firm in 1881 and who played a major role in all levels of government in the area and the province. The next partner was Francis Dean Kerr, from Cobourg, who joined the firm in 1895. The firm was then called Kirkpatrick, Peck & Kerr. By 1912 the firm was called Peck, Kerr & McElderry. The firm continued to grow and change partners as some of the partners moved into other positions in the legal world. In 1941 Walter Harold Howell joined the firm of Peck, Kerr, McElderry & Howell. In January 1951 Alexander Fleming added his name to the practice's title. The name of the law practice changed frequently as partners were added to or left the firm. In 1965 Carol M. Huddart became the first female lawyer in the firm. The names of Howell and Fleming remained with the firm since 1941 when Walter Harold Howell joined the firm. In 1987 the firm changed its name to Howell, Fleming and in 1996 it is still known as thus. The law firm started by Kirkpatrick has always offered a full range of legal services to the residents of Peterborough and the community.
