Holding local office as a magistrate was almost essential for further prominence, but holding a commission in the militia was equally if not more important. Anglicanism was an enormous advantage in achieving prominence. In addition, national origin was also an important political divider: the number of prominent Scots was even greater than historians have previously suspected while there was a consistent under-representation of native-born Canadians in the group studied.
