About the beginnings of Richmond, and the Presbyterian cemetery:
    "By late November, 1818 some four hundred heads of families had located in the vicinity of Richmond to mark the beginnings of a second military settlement (the first being Perth in 1816) under Lieut. Colonel Francis COCKBURN, Deputy Quarter-Master-General in Canada at that time. Joseph FORTUNE, a meticulous surveyor, was appointed by COCKBURN to lay out a townsite for Richmond, and FORTUNE's detailed plan of 1825 remains the basis for the municipal plan of to-day. With VICTORIA, Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and Charles Theophilus, Baron METCALFE of Fernhill in the County of Berkshire acting as Her Most Honorable Privy Council Governor General of British North American and Captain General and Governor in Chief in and over the Provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Island of Prince Edward, an Order in Council was read before Charles METCALFE, Bart. G.C.B. Gov't General on 3 September 1844 for provision of a Presbyterian Burying Ground in Richmond. The terms of this Crown Grant of land were duly prepared at Montreal on 27 February, 1845 in the eighth year of VICTORIA's Reign and conveyed "unto the Reverend David EVANS of the Town of Richmond in the County of Carleton in the District of Dalhousie, Clerk, Anthony PHILIP of the same place Esquire, and William GORDON, the Elder, of the Township of Goulbourn in the County and District aforesaid, Yeoman, their Heirs and Assigns forever All that Parcel or Tract of Land situated in the Town of Richmond in the County of Carleton in the District of Dalhousie of Our said Province containing by admeasurement Two Acres, be the same or or less, Being composed of Lot Numbered Eleven on the East side of Fortune Street and Lot Numbered Eleven on the West side of Maitland Street in the said Town of Richmond.""
