NotesThe printing and publishing firm of Andrew H. Armour and Company was formed in May 1831 by Robert Armour (1781-1857), a businessman and owner of the Montreal Gazette, and his son Andrew Harvie (1809-1859). The partnership was terminated in 1835 when Andrew Harvie founded the Montreal-based firm of Armour and Ramsay with his brother-in-law, bookseller and publisher Hew Ramsay.
