"Prime Minister" in Moncton? Mystery visitor

Surnames: Elliott
A family history written by a deceased great uncle reports that the Prime Minister of Canada was a regular visitor in the Elliott home in Moncton in the early 1860's and that it was he who suggested the name Ontario for the new daughter (born in 1865). Unfortunately there was no prime minister until after 1867. Any guess as to who this prominent visitor would have been? I believe the basic story. William Elliott received the "title" esquire though I believe he was a merchant (I don't see evidence that he was a justice of the peace.)
