Biographical history

Charles Morse, KC, was born in 1860 in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, to Margaret and Charles Morse, Judge of Probate for Queen's County. He was educated at Liverpool Academy, Dalhousie University (LLB, 1885; LLD, 1908), and Trinity College, Toronto (DCL, 1900). He was called to the bar in Nova Scotia in 1885 and made a KC in 1908. Morse became Registrar of the Exchequer Court of Ottawa in 1912, from which he retired in 1932 to enter private practice.

In 1885 Morse married Susan M. Peters, with whom he had two sons and one daughter. He died c. 1945.
