Quebec City

July 3, 1608 is the date on which Quebec City, in the province of Quebec, Canada was founded by Samuel de Champlain.  Buried in the cemetery of St. Matthew’s Anglican Church is Sir Walter Scott’s brother Thomas, who died in 1823.  As reported in John Colombo’s “Canadian Literary Landmarks”, Walter Scott said his brother Thomas was “a man of infinite humour and excellent parts, but he was unfortunate.”
