Early York Settlers Project

York Region Branch  is compiling a database of all early pioneer settlers to our Region.   We hope to include in this list basic information on the original pioneer settler, such as place of origin; date of arrival in the Region; place of settlement, i.e. township, lot and concession number, if known; name of wife, if known; if accompanied by family; if part of a group migration such as a Berczy settler, Quaker group, etc. 

Please submit your entries to the Branch via mail, attention Doris Bourrie, or by email to   If the information is taken from a published source, please include a complete citation for the published material, so that it can be listed as a source for possible further research.  It is not necessary that there be any ancestral connection to the settler.

    Good Idea, I believe there are other groups doing this also, Lambton and Kawartha?? All branches should do this. I am doing a Twp and I bet there are more than a few others doing this
