Benjamin Belcher

Benjamin Belcher (July 17 1743 – May 14 1802) was a merchant and political figure in Nova Scotia. He represented Cornwallis township from 1785 to 1793 and King's County from 1793 to 1799 in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly.

He was born in Gibraltar and came to Nova Scotia around 1760, settling at Cornwallis four years later. In 1764, he married Sarah Post. Belcher operated a general store and was involved in the trade with the West Indies. He also served as lieutenant in the local militia. Belcher died at Cornwallis at the age of 58.

His grandson Clement Horton Belcher was a publisher and book seller in Halifax.
