Filled to the brim with detailed biographical accounts of individuals and early families of the County of Essex in Ontario, the work also includes portraits of many of those whose stories fill its pages.

The original publisher of this tome created similar volumes for only four Ontario counties before the series ended. Fortunately for those interested in the early families of Essex County, the Commemorative Biographical Record of the County of Essex, Ontario was completed prior to discontinuing production of commemorative biographical records of the remaining counties of Ontario by the J. H Beers & Company.
