Born in Martinique, West Indies where his Irish father was serving in the Royal Artillery, Robert Charles Archibald McLean was a physician and one of the most popular men in Kingston. Only mayor for a few months, McLean’s term expired when Kingston became a city on 13 June, 1846. Although it was expected he would run again, he did not, and within a few years retired to Ernestown (west of Kingston).
