Frederick Ernest Burnham
He was born in Peterborough, Ontario, the son of Elias Burnham and Ann Whitney. Burnham was called to the Ontario bar in 1868 and practised law in Peterborough. In 1869, he married Ellen Eliza Cluxton. He ran unsuccessfully for a seat in the Manitoba assembly in 1879. By 1881, he was practising law in Emerson, Manitoba. His election in 1883 was overturned due to bribery and Burnham was defeated by Charles Douglas in the by-election that followed later that year.
