Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Andrew Trew Wood was a Canadian businessman and parliamentarian. Born in Mountnorris, County Armagh, Ireland, the son of David Wood, a merchant, and Frances Bigham Trew, he emigrated to Canada sometime before 1846. He found employment at James Shepard Ryan's hardware store in Toronto in that year; in 1848, he was put in charge of the branch in Hamilton. In 1856, he opened his own business. Wood was a founding director of the Hamilton and Lake Erie Railway Company in 1869 and the Ontario Cotton Mills Company in 1881. In 1893, he became one of the owners of the Hamilton Blast Furnace Company; when it merged with the Ontario Rolling Mills Company to form the Hamilton Steel and Iron Company in 1899, Wood served as its first president.
