History / Biographical
From "St. Thomas and Its Men of Affairs" (1914): Born at Kingsbridge, South Devon, England, May 7th, 1820. His father was a dissenting minister and emigrated to Canada in 1832, settling at Montreal, where he died shortly afterward. The fatherless boy was adopted by Mr. Gideon Ackland, a lawyer, who lived in Perth, but owing to a change in Mr. Ackland's circumstances, Mr. Hughes then entered the employ of the Hon. Malcolm Cameron in the publication of the Bathurst Courier. In 1835, he removed to the London district where he was adopted by his brother-in-law, the late Hon. John Wilson, the leading lawyer of the western circuit. Here he received his education in the London grammar schools and afterwards as a student in Mr. Wilson's law office. Mr. Hughes was called to the Bar in Michaelmas term in 1842; settled at Woodstock and practiced his profession there until 1847, when he entered partnership with the Hon. John Wilson, remaining in London until October 1853. He was appointed Judge of Elgin County upon its separation from Middlesex in the year 1853 and was retired by Act of Parliament on account of age in 1903. Judge Hughes ranks as probably the oldest distinguished resident of St. Thomas. ;He was present at the laying of the corner stone of the St. Thomas court house in 1852 and held the first court of the new county in the old town hall, and the first court in the new court house in 1854. He is a protestant to the backbone and in politics a Baldwin Reformer. ;Residence: 114 Metcalfe street.
