BOOK - A Collection of Lanark County, Ontario Marriage Records 1817-1967
By Peter Andersen
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2015
Nearly three decades ago, Peter Andersen extracted and recorded marriage records from the church registers of a long list of Lanark County churches of various faiths. He also compiled lists of Strays -- marriages of Lanark County natives who married outside of the county, or in other churches. Extracts of marriage notifications published in the Lanark Observer newspaper (Lanark Village) have been included in this collection. These seven hundred pages of marriage records have been built into a single searchable digital file that is bookmarked by the name of the source and date range of records contained within each section. (e.g. Perth Presbyterian Church 1817-1857). Being able to search through all 41 sets of records with a single search is especially helpful when you are not sure of where, when, or in which church that a marriage was solemnized. The collection includes about 84,000 individual names of brides, grooms, and named witnesses who participated in solemnizing approximately 14,000 marriages between 1817 and 1967.

BOOK - Pioneer History of the County of Lanark
By J. S. McGill
At the close of the war of 1812-14, the British government was faced with two major problems. Unemployment and industrial depressions at home, and an uneasy peace with the Americans abroad. Upper Canada was still vulnerable to invasion and it was thought the interior should be settled as a second line of defense against further hostilities. In Britain work had to be found for unemployed tradesmen and discharged soldiers. An emigration scheme was put into action to settle the great wilderness north and west of the Rideau River which flows into the Ottawa. From Scotland came soldiers and their families in 1815 to found the Perth military settlement, followed by tradesmen and their families. The subsequent years brought more Scots, followed by Peter Robinson's Irish Immigrants in 1823. The land was part of the Precambrian Shield, oldest rock in the world, and only some of it was fit for agriculture. The remainder grew timber but much was swamp and rocky hillock. This book is the story of the strong-willed pioneers who loved this land and did their best with it. The author has has included much family history as well as some early ship passenger lists. After more than forty years since it was originally written, this humble little book remains the best published history of Lanark County. ISBN 0-9690087-1-6    More information

By Duncan (Darby) MacDonald
Origianlly published by MacDonald Research Centre as two separate volumes, Brockville, 1985, 1988
Published by MacDonald Research, Milton, 2015
*MacDonald Research is an imprint of GlobalGenealogy.com Inc.

Reverend John MacDonald served as teh Roman Catholic Priest at Perth, Upper Canada (Ontario) from 1823 to 1837. This book contains two previously published volumes of extracts from Rev. MacDonald's diaries from 1823 to 1836. Additionally, extracts from the 1868-1912 almanacs of Peter Ferguson of Sherbrook Township, and an 1836 Census of "Catholic Souls" residing in Lanark County.

BOOKS - The Lanark Era - Births, Marriages and Deaths, In Three Volumes
By Peter E. Andersen
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 1998-2003
These three volumes contain transcriptions of births, marriages and deaths taken from original newspapers and microfilm of surviving issues of The Lanark Era from 1895 to 1936. Also includes transcriptions regarding returning WWI soldiers, and many who did not. The Lanark Era did an exceptional job of publishing useful information about early local families and also information about those who left Lanark. When volumes one and two were compiled, there were missing issues. Some years later, copies of the "missing issues" were discovered in a private collection. That enabled the third book in the series -- The Missing Years. The combined 3 volumes contain information on more than 45,000 individuals.     More information including indexes

BOOK - Historic Hastings - Volume One with New Introduction and Expanded Index
By Gerald E. Boyce
First edition published by Hastings County Council, Belleville, 1967
This second edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2013

Originally published in 1967 to document the settlement and local history of Hastings County in Ontario, Canada up to 1966, this fine work has been long out of print. Author, Author Gerry Boyce writes "With 8,000 copies in circulation, one could presume that there would be no need for a reprint. Such is not the case. The book has been out of print for several years, but prices for used copies (sometimes in poor condition) have risen dramatically". Historic Hastings has stood the test of time -- as highly regarded today as when originally published. Readers and family history researchers will appreciate the new and expanded index in this edition. Larry McQuoid and the Quinte Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society contributed an improved and greatly expanded index to which the author has added additional entries for the new content in this edition. The original index in the 1967 edition excluded many family names listed in the chapters on individual municipalities, the new index includes all these names. This certainly will benefit genealogists. Generously illustrated with period photographs and maps. ISBN 978-0-9809110-8-4 (hardcover) More information (including the new index)

BOOK - Sketches Illustrating The Early Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada
By J. A. MacDonell
Originally published Wm Foster, Brown & Co., Montreal, 1893
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2010

J. A. MacDonell recognized that much had been written on the subject of United Empire Loyalist settlement in Ontario, the War of 1812-14, and the Rebellion of 1837-8, but expressed concern that there was little mention made of the part that the Highlanders of Glengarry played in those conflicts. He corrects that oversight within the 29 chapters that comprise this formitable text. This book is an fine source of information for those interested in early settlement of the Highlanders in Glengarry and surrounding counties, and the role that they played in the American Revolution, United Empire Loyalist migration and settlement, War of 1812, and the Rebellion of 1837-38.

BOOK - Births, Marriages and Deaths from Morrisburg (Ontario) Newspapers, 1874-1877
By Jack Schecter & Robert Whitteker
This publication is a transcription of births, marriages and deaths from surviving Morrisburg newspapers, largely from 1874 to 1877 plus a few transcriptions from 1879. Morrisburg is the largest community in Dundas County, Ontario and is located on the St. Lawrence River in Williamsburg Township, thirty miles from Cornwall. Newspapers in nineteenth century Ontario were characterized by frequent changes of names and ownership including the Morrisburg papers. The Morrisburg Banner, founded in 1859 and published in Prescott, was the first newspaper in Morrisburg but it lasted only a short time. The next newspaper published in the community, was The Dundas Courier, which ran from February 24, 1863 to November 24, 1899. Another Morrisburg newspaper was The Herald and St. Lawrence Reporter. The Courier whose starting date is unknown may have lasted until 1889. Documented evidence of the exact date of the final issue remains elusive. The successor to The Courier was The Morrisburg Leader which is still published today. The transcriptions in this book were recorded from original copies of two of the Morrisburg newspapers - The Dundas Herald and St. Lawrence Reporter and The Courier. These appear to be the only surviving "run" of newspapers from Dundas County before the 1890's period.     More information

BOOK - History of the Settlement of Upper Canada, With Special Reference to The Bay of Quinte [Ontario]
By William Canniff
Originally published by Dudley & Burns, Ontario, 1869
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2008, 2011 (CD 2011)

This book grew from modest beginnings into a comprehensive history. The author originally accepted the responsibility to assemble a paper on the topic of the settlement of the Bay of Quinte Region. The "paper grew into a book which went far beyond the history of the settlement of the Bay of Quinte Region. As the work proceeded, Canniff soon realized that in order to prepare a book about the settlement of the Bay of Quinte Region, one had to discuss many topics that concerned the entire province. The final result was this substantial and highly regarded book, which provides an informed insight into the history of the entire province as it was known in 1869 with a focus on the the Bay of Quinte region.

Midland District Marriage Register
    To date no one has been able to locate the original Midland District Marriage Register. The district was originally bounded to the east by a line running north from the mouth of the Gananoque River and to the west by a line running north from the mouth of the Trent River. The district town was Kingston. In 1798, the district was reorganized to consist of the counties of Addington, Frontenac, Hastings, Lennox, and Prince Edward. In 1831, Prince Edward County was separated from Midland District to form Prince Edward District. In 1837, Hastings County was split off to form Victoria District. In 1849, the district was replaced by Frontenac and Lennox and Addington counties.

    When searching for marriages recorded in District Marriage Registers keep in mind that many returns were submitted by ministers who were circuit riders who often performed marriages at great distance from their home bases. Circuit riders reported marriages in the register of the District where they lived which was not necessarily in the same District where the marriage took place. That said, those with ancestors who resided in the Midland District would be well advised to check the Indexes for the District Marriage Registes for the bordering districts: Johnstown District and the Bathurst District. Be sure to also check the parish registers for the churches that were in the area at the time that your ancestor resided there.

BOOKs - Genealogical Abstracts from the Perth Courier and Bathurst Courier Newspapers 1834-1929
By Louise I. Hope
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2013
Louise Hope compiled the records in this eight volume series to create a comprehensive source for extracts of births, marriages, deaths and other genealogical records that were published in The Perth Courier newspaper. Volumes are organized by date range. They are available individually or as a set. The extraction work began in 1974 and was completed 15 years later. She included comprehensive indexes so that specific records are easy to find. Though these books include detailed extracts, they can also serve as a valuable finding aid to help researchers locate the exact issue where an event was reported when looking for an original entry in physical, microfilmed and digitized copies of The Perth Courier. Available in three formats: Printed books in coilbound format; Books-on-CD in searchable pdf format; and Pdf-via-email (also searchable).      More information including indexes



BOOKS - The Lanark Era - Births, Marriages and Deaths, In Three Volumes
By Peter E. Andersen
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 1998-2003
These three volumes contain transcriptions of births, marriages and deaths taken from original newspapers and microfilm of surviving issues of The Lanark Era from 1895 to 1936. Also includes transcriptions regarding returning WWI soldiers, and many who did not. The Lanark Era did an exceptional job of publishing useful information about early local families and also information about those who left Lanark. When volumes one and two were compiled, there were missing issues. Some years later, copies of the "missing issues" were discovered in a private collection. That enabled the third book in the series -- The Missing Years. The combined 3 volumes contain information on more than 45,000 individuals.     More information including indexes

BOOK - Births, Marriages and Deaths from Morrisburg (Ontario) Newspapers, 1874-1877
By Jack Schecter & Robert Whitteker
This publication is a transcription of births, marriages and deaths from surviving Morrisburg newspapers, largely from 1874 to 1877 plus a few transcriptions from 1879. Morrisburg is the largest community in Dundas County, Ontario and is located on the St. Lawrence River in Williamsburg Township, thirty miles from Cornwall. Newspapers in nineteenth century Ontario were characterized by frequent changes of names and ownership including the Morrisburg papers. The Morrisburg Banner, founded in 1859 and published in Prescott, was the first newspaper in Morrisburg but it lasted only a short time. The next newspaper published in the community, was The Dundas Courier, which ran from February 24, 1863 to November 24, 1899. Another Morrisburg newspaper was The Herald and St. Lawrence Reporter. The Courier whose starting date is unknown may have lasted until 1889. Documented evidence of the exact date of the final issue remains elusive. The successor to The Courier was The Morrisburg Leader which is still published today. The transcriptions in this book were recorded from original copies of two of the Morrisburg newspapers - The Dundas Herald and St. Lawrence Reporter and The Courier. These appear to be the only surviving "run" of newspapers from Dundas County before the 1890's period.     More information

BOOK - The People of Glengarry: Highlanders in Transition 1745 - 1820
by Marianne McLean
Published by McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal/Kingston, 1993
Beginning in the middle of the 18th century, the Highlands of Scotland underwent radical social and economic change. The economic transformation - from a quasi-feudal community to a society ordered by modern capitalist forces - led to declining status for clansmen and the disruption of traditional social organizations. Using a wide array of published and unpublished sources, McLean examines in detail nine group emigrations that left western Inverness between 1785 and 1802 for Glengarry County in Upper Canada (now Ontario). She describes how, once in North America, they built a new Highland community in an attempt to ensure each family's access to the land. By revealing the pattern of Highland emigration to Glengarry County - families and friends leaving and/or settling together - McLean confirms Bernard Bailyn's notion of a "provincial emigrant stream," and offers a convincing explanation for the development of one of Canada's "limited identities."     More information

BOOK - Away Back in Clarendon and Miller [township] (Frontenac County, Ontario)
By Charles A. Armstrong
The townships of Clarendon and Miller, within the present day Municipality of North Frontenac, two hours west of Ottawa, are the subject of this fascinating local history by Charles A. Armstrong.

The book has become an invaluable reference guide for local residents of the area as well as far-flung descendants across the continent. Period photos, records and maps bring it all vividly to life.

BOOKS - Letters from the New Canada Mission 1843-1852   [Jesuit missions in early Ontario]
Edited with commentaries and annotations by Lorenzo Cadieux, S. J., 1973 (Part 1), 1982 (Part 2)
Translated by William Lonc, S.J. and George Topp, S.J.
Published by William Lonc for the The Canadian Institute of Jesuit Studies, Toronto, 2001, revised 2004 (Part 1), 2007 (Part 2) (Reprinted 2013)
For many years, several Jesuit historians have been using these authentic documents, and it is now time to share them with other researchers: historians, sociologists, economists, indiologists, folklorists, etc. The university community as well as the public at large will find in these documents a veritable gold-mine of information for their scientific studies because the letters contain precious data from Canada as it was in the 1840's. The letters describe the mores of the society, its economic and material life, the cultural and spiritual values of Canadians at the time of the Union of the two Canadas: Quebec and Ontario. Ontario is the dominant venue for these letters. The authors describe their endeavors in Kingston, Toronto, Chatham, Sandwich (today's Windsor), and then among the Natives of Walpole Island, Manitoulin Island, Sault-SainteMarie, Thunder Bay, etc. The accounts are larded with uncensored episodes, reflection on the Native civilization, and fascinating descriptions, worthy to be included in Canadian anthologies. In short, these letters are documents of choice and contribute to the enrichment of our history.

BOOK - Imperial Immigrants, Scottish Settlers in the Upper Ottawa Valley, 1815–1840
By Michael E. Vance
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2012
Between 1815 and 1832, Great Britain settled more than 3,500 individuals, mostly from the Scottish Lowlands, in the Ottawa Valley. Seeking to transform their lives and their society, early Scots settlers crossed the Atlantic for their own purposes. Although they did not blindly serve the interests of empire builders, their settlement led to the dispossession of the original First Nation inhabitants, thus supporting the British imperial government’s strategic military goals. The bulk of the content of this book focuses on Scottish settlement in Lanark County (mostly) and Renfrew County in what is now Eastern Ontario -- as well as the places where the 1815-1840 Scottish settlers originated.

By Frank Cosentino
In Lanark County, Ontario where the early settlers' Irish, English and Scottish origins are prominent in the names of the communities they founded -- Lanark, Corkery, Glen Isle, Scotch Corners, Tatlock and the like -- it seems more than a little odd that the thriving town of Almonte should be named for a now-forgotten Mexican general. This book is the story of that Mexican General, and of the naming of the town.

BOOK - Montague, A Social History of an Irish Ontario Township 1783-1980
By Glenn J. Lockwood.
When Montague was surveyed in the 1790s, it was intended to accommodate Loyalists and post-Loyalist settlers, to continue settlement started in the 1780s by the first caucasian settler on the Rideau, Roger Stevens. Montague's proximity to the military settlements at Perth, Beckwith, and Richmond attracted additional settlers inthe post 1812 decades; however it was the shock of mass Irish immigration during the 1830s through to the 1850s which gave the township its distinctive character by mid century. Lockwood employs extensive municipal records, archival material, family documents, newspapers, personal interviews and printed census data to explore the character of a township which has remained largely Irish in composition.

BOOK - Scugog Carrying Place, A Frontier Pathway
By Grant Karcich
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2013
The story of Scugog Carrying Place, the ancient aboriginal trails connecting Lake Ontario with Lakes Scugog and Simcoe and the Kawartha lakes is a multifaceted one. In tracing its documented history from the 1790s to the 1850s, author Grant Karcich unravels mysteries; explores the lifestyles of early First Nations; provides background on local archaeological sites; and introduces the intrepid early surveyors, fur traders, missionaries, colourful characters, and entrepreneurial immigrant settlers from both the newly formed United States and the United Kingdom. In their wake come the demon whiskey, devastating plagues, competing world views, saddlebag preachers, and ultimately the marginalization of the First Nations people. The Scugog Trail assumes a significant role in the transition of the land, from forest to agriculture to villages, towns, and industrial centres. Long-forgotten cabins, cemeteries, and a cartographic mystery involving the infamous Cabane de Plomb add to the mystique. The trail bore witness to the development of communities, such as Oshawa, Harmony, Columbus, Prince Albert, Port Perry, Seagrave, Cannington, and Beaverton, whose stories also unfold. Scugog Carrying Place is a must read for history buffs, genealogists, archaeologists, and anyone with roots in this part of Ontario. ISBN 978-1459707-50-4 More information

BOOK - The Kerry Chain, The Limerick Link [Renfrew County, Ontario]
By Carol Bennett McCauig
Published by Juniper Books, Renfrew, 2003
Between the years 1823 and 1875 a large number of families from Ireland's County Kerry and County Limerick, many of them inter-related, arrived in Renfrew County, Ontario. Many of them had first lived in the Ontario counties of Lanark and Carleton to the south, before making the move to join compatriots and relatives in the newly opened townships. These chain migrations involved both Catholics and Protestants. The Catholics took up land in a wide radius of Mount St Patrick, encouraged to settle by the pioneer priest there. The Protestants, many of whom were Palatines, chose new locations in the eastern part of the county. This book, which is the result of a giant jigsaw puzzle on the author's part, involving many years of research, brings together material which will be invaluable to the family researcher.This book will be of interest to both the family historian and those engaged in Irish immigration studies.

This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2013

A comprehensive source for names of the claimants and their losses during the Rebellion of 1837-38 in Upper Canada including subsequent restitution amounts or rejection of claims in whole or in part. Some years ago we purchased a forty eight page document originally printed in 1849, that lists the individual claimants by their name, the amount of their claim in currency (sums claimed), the amount paid (sums allowed) or denied (rejected altogether) and the District in which the claimant resided. The Johnstown District claims include "Nature of Claim" and "remarks". Those entries shine much light on which side of the conflict that the claimants sympathized with along with details of ownership or personal information. More information

BOOK - The Pioneers of Old Ontario
By W. L. Smith
Originally published by George N. Morang, Toronto, 1923
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2006 (CD 2010)

In 1897 Smith began a series of trips through rural Ontario with to obtaining first-hand settlement information from its residents. He found a "warehouse" of information was carried in the memories of men and women - memories that went back to the days of the virgin forest, of log cabins surrounded by blackened stumps in the midst of scanty clearings, of bush trails and corduroy roads over which settlers toiled with their grists to distant mills, of old-time logging bees, and of the circuit riders who carried the Gospel message to those real heroes. This book is the result of that effort. ISBN: 1-897210-90-6 (Hardcover)   More information

By William Canniff
Originally published by Dudley & Burns, Ontario, 1869
This edition by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2008, 2011 (CD 2011)

The "paper grew into a book which went far beyond the history of the settlement of the Bay of Quinte Region. As the work proceeded, Canniff soon realized that in order to prepare a book about the settlement of the Bay of Quinte Region, one had to discuss many topics that concerned the entire province. The final result was this substantial and highly regarded book, which provides an informed insight into the history of the entire province as it was known in 1869 with a focus on the the Bay of Quinte region.

BOOKS - District Marriage Registers and District Vital Records of Upper Canada, 1786-1870
By Dan Walker and Fawne Stratford-Devai
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton
During the early period of settlement in Upper Canada and Canada West (the province of Ontario), all ministers who performed marriages with the exception of Anglican and Roman Catholic ministers were required to send in returns to the Clerk of the Peace for the District. That said, plenty of Anglicans and Catholics were married by nonconformist ministers for reasons explained further on. The majority of returns begin in the 1830s with a few Districts containing earlier marriage returns. The Clerk of the Peace then recorded the returns in a District register kept in the District office. Most of the original District Registers survive and have been reliably transcribed and indexed into a series of books. It is important to keep in mind that the Register is a copy made by the District Clerk. The returns themselves are the closest record to the original parish record that exists. For some Districts the individual original marriage returns from Ministers have also survived and in some instances contain lists of baptisms and burials performed by the minister. Though the 1849 date for conversion to the county system was precise, some clerks continued to add to the District Marriage Registers for decades after the conversion resulting in some District Marriage Register entries being made as late as 1870. Available in printed and digital formats. More Information...

BOOKS - Surrogate Court Index of Ontario, Canada, 1859-1900 ( Wills)- Second Edition
Compiled by June Gibson, Indexed by Elizabeth Hancocks, C. G. & Shannon Hancocks
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton
Wills and the documents that contribute to the process of distributing the estate of an individual can be a wonderful source of information about the deceased, their family and those who survived. The books in the Surrogate Court Index of Ontario, Canada 1859-1900 series are designed to assist researchers in finding death and estate information for those who died in Ontario from the middle to the end of the nineteenth century. Specifically, this index covers Estate Files dated between 1859-1900. The death may have occurred months or even years before the date that the estate was finalized. Many times the estate of the deceased may not have been settled until the death of a spouse. Estate Files are of great interest because of the bounty of detailed information that they contain about the deceased, and about those who survive. The Surrogate Court used the documents in order to disperse the deceased's estate, whether he/she died with (testate) or without (intestate) a Will. Available in printed and digital formats.

BOOKS - Ontario Photographers Lists, Vol 1 & 2
By Glenn Phillips

Invaluable guides to help you identify the place and date when a photograph was taken. Many family history researchers have boxes of photographs, but do not know who is depicted in the photo nor when or where it was taken. These books list individual photographers, where they worked and when. That means that if you have a photograph that includes a photographer's stamp or other identification you can easily find out when and where that picture was taken. Oftentimes that will help you to identify who is in the picture. Both volumes are organized alphabetically by municipality. However, a comprehensive index is also included. Historical place names have been kept. More information

BOOK - In Duty Bound, Men, Women, and the State in Upper Canada, 1783-1841 [Ontario]
By J. K. Johnson
Published by McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal, 2014
An unprecedented look at Upper Canada's forgotten people and the ways in which their lives were by necessity bound in a mutual relationship of duty and obligation to the Upper Canadian state. This neglected area of Canada's history has been preserved, in part, in the form of personal petitions submitted to the lieutenant-governor and legislature for land, government jobs, pensions, pardons and the lessening of court sentences, for compensation for damages done by, or work done for, the state, and for relief. Using these and other previously unexamined government records, J.K. Johnson illustrates that, popular knowledge aside, Upper Canada was not simply a land of self-sufficient farmers and artisans and that many had to turn to and rely on the state for their livelihoods. The major themes of Upper Canada's history, from war and rebellion to immigration and settlement, are well-documented. This book fleshes out the lives of ordinary people in Upper Canada and clarifies how several branches of government worked for, or against, the interests of the population.

BOOK - The Trail of the Black Walnut
By George Elmore Reaman
Published by Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, 1957, 1993
Reprinted by Clearfield Company, Baltimore, 2012

This is a superb piece of research on the little-known Pennsylvania-German connection in the founding of Upper Canada. Starting soon after the outbreak of the American Revolution, numerous Pennsylvania-German families and so-called "Plain Folk" (i.e. Mennonites, Dunkards, Moravians, Amish, Hutterites, etc.) migrated to Canada in successive waves. Together, in cultural and religious groups and in kinship groups, they settled in five main areas: Niagara (1776), Essex (1780), Eastern Ontario (1784), York County (1793), and Waterloo (1800). In this work, the author of The Trail of the Huguenots recounts the story of this settlement of Ontario and lists the names of the first recorded settlers, giving their township and county of residence, date of settlement, nationality, and religion.

BOOK - Inheritance in Ontario, Wills and Other Records for Family Historians

Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2013
Whether your ancestor left hundreds of acres of land, money, or a few modest belongings, the records created when those legacies were distributed can provide valuable clues to family connections, relationships, and just how your ancestors lived. Inheritance in Ontario will help you determine whether your relative's will was proved in the Court of Probate, surrogate courts, or another court, and navigate the finding aids to locate surviving estate files and other complementary records at the Archives of Ontario, local courthouse or archives, or through FamilySearch.org. Not every Ontario estate was handled by a court, however, and land records, newspapers, and manuscript collections can also help you discover "who got what".

BOOK - Ontario People: 1796-1803
By Keith Fitzgerald, with Introduction and Index by Norman K. Crowder
Published by Genealogical Publishing Comany, Baltimore, 1993 (reprinted 1998)
After the American Revolution, several thousand families came to settle in the western part of Quebec, later called Upper Canada, then Canada West and today Ontario. These settlers were former members of American Loyalist regiments, discharged British and German servicemen, and some civilians and refugees. They were offered grants of 200 acres of land on condition that they take an oath of allegiance and remain loyal to the British regime. The military and Loyalist arrivals who had come earlier received larger grants, generally in relation to their services to the Crown, their rank or status, and family size. Some entries show, for example, relationships, deaths, military service, maiden names of married women, and remarriage of widows.

BOOK - William Wye Smith: Recollections of a Nineteenth Century Scottish Canadian
Edited by Scott A. McLean and Michael E. Vance
Many writers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries emphasised the virtues of early rural pioneers and life on the land as a general criticism of what they perceived to be the negative, alienating influence of Ontario's rapid urban and industrial expansion. William Wye Smith, a popular nineteenth century Upper Canadian (Ontario) poet, was no exception. This fully annotated version of Smith's unpublished manuscript highlights Smith's unwitting testimony to the social life of the province, his relationship to the construction and maintenance of Scottish and Canadian identity, as well as his position in literary history.

BOOK - The Irish in Ontario: A Study in Rural History
By Donald Harman Akenson
Published by McGill Queens Press, Toronto, 1999
Hailed as one of the most important books on social sciences of the last fifty years by the Social Sciences Federation of Canada. For most of the nineteenth century, the Irish formed the largest non-French ethnic group in central Canada and their presence was particularly significant in Ontario. This study presents a general discussion of the Irish in Ontario during the nineteenth century and a close analysis of the process of settlement and adaptation by the Irish in Leeds and Lansdowne township. While Akenson is careful not to over-generalize his findings, he contends that the case of Ontario seriously calls into question conventional beliefs about the cultural limitations of the Irish Catholics not only in Canada but throughout North America.
