CONNER & COLTSON'S
THE COUNTY OF ONTARIO
In issuing this the first edition of the COUNTY OF ONTARIO
DIRECTORY for 1869/7O; the Publishers desire to return their
thanks to those gentlemen who have assisted them in procuring
the information it contains, as well as to those who have
favored them with their patronage as adverttsers or subscribers;
and thus enabled them to complete the undertaking upon which they
embarked, to produce as perfect a Directory as could be compiled.
In that respect they have satisfaction in believing they have
been successful, and that the public will thereby be willing to
extend to them the favor of their patronage in the future.

In laying this volume before the public it would perhaps, be too
presumptuous to assert that it is wholly free from errors. This could
scarcely be safely said of any work of the kind ever published. The
compilers content themselves with the statement that no pains or trouble
have been spared on their part to secure accuracy, and that whatever
errors (if any) may be discovered in the work they will turn out of a
trivial and immaterial character.
The county of Ontario is situated in nearly the centre of the Province.
It is a long narrow strip only two townships wide, and is remarkable
on the map for its extreme length compared with so small a frontage.
It extends from Whitby Harbour on Lake Ontario, on the
South, to the Severn River, bounding the township of Rama on the
North,a distance of about 80 miles, part of its Eastern and Western
boundaries skirting the margin of lakes Scugog, Simcoe, and Couchiching.
On its Eastern boundary it has the counties of Durham and
Victoria and on the West the rich County of York. Ontario is divided
into two Ridings, the North and the South-for Parliamentary
purposes, and each of these comprise the following Municipalities:
North Ontraio, embraces the townships of Reach, Scugog Island, Brock,
Uxbridge, Scott, Thorah, Mara, and Rama. South Ontario, the townships
of Whitby, East Whitby, and Pickering, and the Corporations of
the town of Whitby and Villige of Oshawa. The whole formed part
of what was formerly known as the United Counties of Ontario, York
and Peel until Ontario was set off in 1853 as a separate county. Each
Riding is represented in the House of Commons and Legislature of the
Province of Ontario by one member. The Municipal government of
the county consists of twenty four members elected by the different
Municipalities and composing the body known as the County Council.
Ontario is justly regarded as one of the first Agricultural counties in
tbe Province. Of its area estimated at 360,000 acres there are upwards
of 210,000 acres cleared and under cultivation, about 150,000
acres being under crop and the remainder devoted to pasture. The
soil is rich and fertile; and very productive. Large quantities
of Wheat and Barley are raised annually, and the superior quality of
the grain commands the highest market prices. It is perhaps on this
account, as well as owing to the superiority of its excellent Harbour and
superior shipping facilities, that the town of Whitby is noted as a grain
market, where, during the past few years, higher prices have been paid
for wheat and Barley than in that of even the City of Toronto. The
bulk of the population, numbering about 45,000, are Agriculturists.
There are, however, a large number of manufacturers, merchants and
traders. The principal manufactures are flour and lumber but there
are also a large number of woollen mills scattered over the couuty in
which a large business is carried on. The splendid Joseph Hall Foundry
and Agricultural Works at Oshawa, and the Foundry and Agricultural Works
of Brown & Patterson, at Whitby, each giving employment to a large number
of men, the number of hands employed in the former being over 200, and
the works are the most extensive of the kind in the Province. Whiting's
Agricultural Implement Manufactory is also situated in Oshawa. Ontario
possesses a large number of churches of various denominations; large sums
are devoted by the different municipalities to the interests of education,
and the county possesses some of the best Grammar and Common Schools in
the Dominion. There are five newspapers published within the county, two
at Whitby, and one in each of the villages of Oshawa, Port Perry and
Prince Albert. The county of Ontario is also remarkable for the number
of thriving villages scattered in every direction throughout its length
and breadth, and the almost total absence of outrage and crime within
One great means which must serve most beneficially in the future development
of the resources of the county, and advancing its material prospects is
the construction of the contemplated lines of Railway, for which charters
have been obtained. From Whitby Harbour, and the Grand Trunk, which passes
over the Southern extremity of the country, the Whitby and Port Perry line
is designed to run northerly through the centre of the township of Whitby,
turnin east to Port Perry, with a branch to Uxbridge, the line to be
constructed to Beaverton, on Lake Simcoe. The portion of the line to
Port Perry is already under contract, and the work partially commenced.
And $10,000 have been granted as a bonus by the township of Reach for the
branch to Uxbridge.
The next is the Toronto and Nipissing line which is designed to cross
the township of Uxbridge to Uxbridge village thence in a north-easterly
direction through Brock. Uxbridge has voted a bonus of $50,000
towards the construction of this line.
The third is the continuation of the Port Hope line from
Lindsay to Beaverton, which will enter Thorah on the east side
passing north-westerly through it, to Beaverton. Already
work has been commenced on this extension. With these
advantages, and aids to the development of its resources and
trade, the people of the county of Ontario-its Agricultural and
enterprising merchants, have good reason to look proud and
hopefully to the brilliant future of their fair county.

One of the smartest and most enterprising Inland Villages in the Province,
is situated in the township of the same name, and surrounded by an excellent
farming country. It is about 22 miles north-west of Whitby, to which place
it is connected by daily stage, and upon the completion of the Toronto and
Nipissing Railway, it will be one of its most important stations. With these
various advantages, combined with its excellent water power, it is destined
at no distant day to be a place of great importance to the North Riding of
Ontario Co. It was first settled about the year 1817 or 1818 by Mr. Thomas
Hilborne and Mr. Joseph Collins, the latter of whom, shortly after, built a
grist-mill which, in those days, was an undertaking requiring both energy
and enterprise. The first store was opened by Mr. Carlton Lynde, about the
year 1830, and the first Postmaster was Mr. Joseph Bascom, sen. With its
flour, grist and saw mills, woolen factory, steam cabinet works, sash and
door factories, foundry, tannery, and several large general stores, hotels,
&c., constantly giving employment to a large number of hands, besides
furnishing an excellent market for the surrounding farmers. A person of
twenty years ago would be loath to believe it was the same place today, or
that so much could have been done in so short a time. But nevertheless
here they are, forming, as they do, a monument to the liberal enterprise
and energy of the men of north Ontario. The civil societies are represented
by a Sons of Temperance Division, No. 139, and the military spirit is shown
by a Volunteer Infantry Co., No. 7 Ontario Battalion, Capt. Robert Spears,
and the musical talent is developed by an excellent Brass Band, under
the able leadership of Mr. A. D. Weeks. There are also a number Churches,
viz: One Church of England, built of wood in 1852, at the cost of about
$1,000; one Roman Catholic, built of brick in 1866, at the cost of about
$1,400; one Methodist Episcopal of wood, erected in 1867, at the cost of
about $1,000; one Wesleyan Methodist, also of wood, erected in 1854, and
greatly enlarged in 1867, entire cost about $2,200; one Regular Baptist,
built of wood in 1861, at the cost of about $1,200; one Bible Christian of
wood, erected in 1862, at the cost of about $800. The Presbyterian body
are about to build, but at present, they hold service in the Ontario Hall,
a fine large Public Hall recently built of wood, at the probable cost of
$1000. The education of the young is not neglected, as there is a
Grammar and three Common Schools, employing 4 teachers. Daily Mail.
Population about 1000.
