Andrew Haydon sheds much light on the settlement and development of the "old" Bathurst District.

In the earliest days of Upper Canada, (later, named Canada West, then Ontario) administrative authority for local affairs including local roads, courts, land, etc was at the District level. There were county boundaries -- however, counties had no administrative function until they were formally established by statute in 1849. Prior to 1849 the District system prevailed -- the transition was not immediate in some areas.

The District of Bathurst included most of Lanark, Renfrew and Carleton Counties in present-day Ontario. From the world events that set the scene for settlement of the 'upper' province, to specific information about individuals who came to call Bathurst District their home, this book is a treasure.

The author has included many first hand accounts of those who experienced the hardships and opportunities of settlement in a new land. Includes many references to the early fmailies and individuals in the region.
