Christopher Plummer came from quite a remarkable family. His great great great grandfather, John Bethune from the Isle of Sky, was a Presbyterian minister who served in North Carolina, Nova Scotia, Montreal (established the first Presb. congregation there), then moved to Glengarry County and ministered to the Gaelic speaking immigrants. His great grandfather was Sir John Abbott, the first native born Canadian Prime Minister. John Bethune was also the gr gr grandfather of Dr Norman Bethune, a famous/infamous Canadian Communist surgeon who served in the Spanish Civil war and in the China of Mao Tse-tung.
