Notes on the History of the District of Niagara 1791 - 1793 provides insight into the activities and people of the Niagara area using first hand accounts from correspondence, reports, diary entries, and various proceedings.

Many early settlers are mentioned by name, as are conditions of roads, infrastructure, agriculture, and industry. The book concludes with a listing of local mills and details about each. Comments about individuals often include information about their relationships with others.

The first hand accounts in particular give the reader a sense of the community and its European, Loyalist, 'Indian' (Mohawks, Cherokees, Tuskarous, and Missassagoes) and 'half-blood' inhabitants from a European point of view. Many are mentioned by name with details of homes, meals, pass-times and traditions.

This book will be of great interest to those who are researching family history and/or the history of the settlement of the Niagara region.

Dedication
The publisher extends recognition and thanks to Esther Summers for loaning her original copy of this rare book for use in publishing this historical reprint. The original book is now in the Maholme Foundation Genealogical and Historical Centre library in St. Catharines, Ontario. Mrs. Summers often made margin notes and/or underlined words in her reference books. We've digitally removed those marks where it could be done without damaging the text of the book -- others remain.
