The Settlement of the County of Grenville. - 1901(Ontario, Canada) by: Mrs. Burritt


Cat No.:   CAG097:

Content Description: The county of Grenville lies on the north shore of the St Lawrence river, due south of Ottawa. The author explores what was known of the pre-european settler occupation of the area before moving along to describe the surveying of five townships and the distribution of 200 acre lots to United Empire Loyalists. This attempt to occupy and develop the land in the late 1700s and early 1800s met with success and became the basis for this part of the current United counties of Leeds and Grenville.

Contains some detailed descriptions of early settlement experiences and the establishment of early grist mills. The paper ends with a short discussion of the presence of slaves in the county and in exploring some of the more influential settlers whose names are still recognizable in the county.
