3. Brantford Township, Ontario History
BRANT COUNTY, ONTARIO BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES. Brantford Township History.These Township Histories have been transcribed by Bill Bowman
Brantford Township History
These Township Histories have been transcribed by Bill Bowman from Warner and Beers History of Brant County 1883. They are being posted as Bill completes them. A big thank you to Bill for his hard work! Please use your browser's Find feature to make sure you don't miss your surname, which might be buried inside a different surname biography. BRANTFORD TOWNSHIP Page 361 The settlement of this township dates from the commencement of the present century. The first white settler was Mr. John File, who found the entire region covered with forest, oak, pine and maple, and used as a hunting ground by the Six Nation Indians of the Iroquois tribe, who considered the whole region on each side of the Grand River as their indefeasible property. Bottom Page 361-362 Bottom Page 362-365 When the last verdict had been rendered and the court closed, the ox-team was hitched up and the two days' drive through the woods was resumed. Well was it when the wolves, hunger-driven through the oak forest, failed to over take the slow-moving equipage. As late as 1830 the entire area of what is now Brantford Township remained in the possession of the Six Nations Indians, but at that date the town plot of Brantford and the north part of the township of the same name were deeded away, and further surrenders were made from time to time until the whole township was ceded and settled. When a subdivision was effected of the four original districts into which the Province of Upper Canada was divided, this township was made a part of the Gore District, and was incorporated in the County of Wentworth, until it was attached to the new County of Brant on the formation of the latter in the year 1852.

x MAIN SUBSCRIBE VIEW INDEX Our journal Ontario History began in 1899 as the annual Papers and Records of the Ontario Historical Society. Its name was changed to Ontario History in 1947 and it became a quarterly in 1949. More recently, in 1998, it moved to publish twice yearly. The journal's mandate is to disseminate sound research, good writing, and interesting ideas on Ontario’s past while adhering to high scholarly standards, supporting catholicity of viewpoints, and encouraging a variety of forms of historical discourse. It differs from other similar journals in Canada in its Ontario focus and in its inclusiveness. From the early years of the century it has published work by women as well as men, amateur as well as professional historians, and beginning as well as established scholars. In addition to the publication of political, military, and constitutional history; it has been early to recognize First Nations’ history, women’s history, immigration and ethnic history, labour history, and other recently developed areas of the discipline. After a two-year hiatus, the journal has succeeded in its re-application to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for a grant to assist in its publication.

Our Unlikely Name
In a region 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 our town should be named for a now-forgotten Mexican general. Almonte went through a number of name changes in the early days, from Shepherd's Falls to Shipman's Mills, Ramsayville, and by about 1855, Waterford; but the federal post office pointed out there was already a Waterford in the west of the province, and told townsfolk the name would have to change yet again. At the time relations between Canada and the United States were at a low ebb, especially here in Ontario. The province's first major wave of settlers, after all, had been Loyalists, Americans whose sympathies for England prompted them to flee northward during and after the Revolution; and the suspicion lingered in many Canadian minds that the US still intended a settling of accounts. American invasions of Canada around 1812 didn't help matters, nor did US military incursions into Mexico during the 1840s. Which is where General Juan Almonte enters the picture. The border skirmishes between Mexcio and America during this time were seen by Mexcians as a naked and unprovoked land-grab, and by worried Canadians as a cautionary tale proof positive that the American republic was ready and willing to use force against its neighbours to achieve its territorial aims.

Real Estate

is one of California's first planned communities. Known as "The Model Colony", Ontario is a leader in transportation and other fields. Today with a population of about 150,000, Ontario continues to lead the Inland Empire thru the 21st century, yet it retains a sense of tradition and small town charm.
Over $1 Billion worth of construction activity is now taking place in Ontario. Projects such as the Ontario Mills Mall, the Ontario Convention Center, and the expansion of the Ontario International Airport will continue to help support Ontario's diverse and growing economy. The Edwards 53 screen theater by Ontario Mills creates the largest and one of the busiest cinema attractions in the world.The development of the 8,200 acre Agricultural Preserve will allow Ontario to ontinue to provide high quality housing to all economic sectors of the population for years to come.
Ontario's location in the sun-belt assures mild, Mediterranean weather with brisk winters and pleasantly cool summer nights. Temperatures vary during the seasons, typically falling between 45 degrees and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. With an elevation of 925 feet, Ontario averages 312 days of sunshine per year. The mild weather allows residents to enjoy Ontario's many parks as well as the nearby Orange County and San Diego attractions including Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm and Sea World. Close to the San Bernardino Mountains, residents can also enjoy world-class skiing at Big Bear during the winter months.

April 1941 - Hollywood Comes Calling
The Sea Wolf offers a bonanza of London connections
The Capitol Theatre in downtown London hosts the Canadian premier of the harrowing maritime drama, The Sea Wolf - and for good reason. Featured actors Alexander Knox and Gene Lockhart and studio head Jack Warner were either born or educated in London while the novel the film is based on was written by - wait for it - Jack London. None of those luminaries are present at the event, though Knox's mother does amble by to check out the festivities. Local theatre manager Bill Trudell organized the event.
March 1923 - KKK Tests the Waters
William L. Higgett of Georgia, past Grand Serpent of the Ku Klux Klan, stopped over in London and shared his views with the media. He urged a confederacy of North American Anglo-Saxons to exclude Asians and prevent the dumping of immigrants. Three years later local klan members held a funeral service at a local cemetery in full regalia. Londoners welcomed their hooded visitors with folded arms. February 1853 - Thomas Talbot dies
As the official promoter of settlement in the London District, Colonel Thomas Talbot oversaw the development of 29 townships in Southern Ontario. His two greatest accomplishments were the construction of a vital road system and the development of London, Ontario. Never the most social person - he drank heavily and a settler once knocked him to the ground - Talbot left behind few friends when he died in London at the age of 80.

    Motto: Ut Incepit Fidelis Sic Permanet (Loyal it began, Loyal it remains) The Province of Ontario was created at the time of confederation, 1 July 1867, before then it was known as Canada West, and before 1841 as Upper Canada The name, Ontario, comes from an Iroquoian word that is sometimes translated as meaning "beautiful lake", "beautiful water" or "handsome lake". In 1862 Dr. Henry Scadding suggested that Ontario might have come from the name that the Seneca Indians used for themselves "Entouhonorous" (the people) Indian settlement began in prehistoric times. Inhabitants by 100 AD were the Algonquin tribes of Ojibwa, Cree and Algonquin, and the Iroquoian tribes of Iroquois, Huron, Petun, Neutral, Erie and Susquehannock. The first European settlement was St. Marie Among The Huron's in 1639.

    17. Sublimating Ontario History: Gary Kulesha's New Opera At The University Of Toron

    Volume 2 Number 2 (Winter 2000) Sublimating Ontario History: Gary Kulesha's new opera at the University of Toronto
    by Jiri Smrz
    As its first offering of the 2000-2001 season, the Opera Division at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music presented four performances of Gary Kulesha's latest work, The Last Duel , between November 2 and 5, 2000. The plot is based on an 1833 incident in Perth, involving the schoolteacher Elizabeth Hughes and her two suitors, John Wilson and Henri Lelièvre, which resulted in a death and a legislation banning duels by pistols in Upper Canada. The opera's final scene, its longest, was also its most successful. Kulesha developed a more sustained musical argument here, and related it closely to the dramatic situation. He composed a large-scale passacaglia, which subsumed Elizabeth's music in its inexorable momentum, trapping her tightly in the obligation to "follow the path of duty" by marrying the man who provoked the duel "on her behalf". Raffi Armenian kept things moving with his no-nonsense conducting, but could not always prevent the orchestra from overwhelming the singers. The cast of November 5 was remarkably even, and was challenged by the new score into giving concentrated performances. Colin Ainsworth [Henri Lelièvre] stood out because of his elegantly produced voice and sensitive phrasing. Tina Winter [Elizabeth Hughes] helped to increase the effect of the last scene with her committed acting, while Michael Sproule [John Wilson] never allowed others to overshadow his more prosaic character.

    Opera performance in the Hamilton area began in the 1960's with the "Hamilton Opera Company", an amateur company led by Marty Coughan and Giuseppe Macina, which performed at the Mohawk College Auditorium for approximately 10 years. The next step was taken in 1975 with the creation of "Festitalia" - a festival designed to celebrate Hamilton's Italian community and to encourage Italian trade and culture in Hamilton. Opera productions from Catiana in Sicily were imported to the festival in 1977 and 1978.
    Scarpia (Alan Monk) and Tosca (Lisa Houben) in Tosca 1998
    Violetta (Frances Ginzer) in La Traviata 1990 In 1979, Festitalia took the bold step of mounting its very own production of Puccini's LaBohème - an effort that was praised by both critics and audiences alike. The positive community response to these efforts led to a study to determine the best future options for operatic productions in Hamilton. Importing Canadian Opera Company productions from Toronto was a scenario seriously considered. However, it was felt that a professional opera company in Hamilton was a viable and more desirable alternative.
