Francis Longworth Haszard (1849–1938) was the 10th Premier of P.E.I. Haszard's family had been United Empire Loyalists moving to the island from the United States after the American Revolution in the 18th century. Haszard was born at Bellevue, Lot 49. He studied law, eventually, setting up a practice in Charlottetown. He was elected to the legislature for the first time in 1904 as a Liberal. He became premier after the death of Arthur Peters. Haszard left politics in 1911 to accept an appointment to the province's Supreme Court. He retired from the bench in 1930.
