Pedlar is a fictional character from the 1985 film The Bride.
Pedlar is a term used in Canadian history to refer to English-speaking independent fur traders from Montreal who competed with the Hudson's Bay Company in western Canada from about 1770 to 1803. After 1779 they were mostly absorbed by the North West Company. The name was first used by the Hudson's Bay Company to refer French coureurs des bois who travelled inland to trade with the Indians as opposed to the HBC policy of building posts on Hudson Bay and waiting for the Indians to bring furs to them.
