James McGill Strachan was the son of Bishop Strachan and born at Cornwall, Upper Canada. He studied at the Royal Military College at Sandhurst, England, and during the Rebellion of 1837-38 he was the military secretary to Lieut-Governor Sir Francis Bond Head. He was called to the bar in 1838 and went into partnership with John Hillyard Cameron in Toronto. Later, around 1847, their partnership failed and Strachan spent the rest of his days tending to his land and pursuing leisurely sportsman’s activities. (D.C.B. Vol. IX).
