  • Pop. 33,232. In the Reg. Mun. of Hamilton- Wentworth on Hwy 403, 8 km W of Hamilton.
  • In 1790 Jean-Baptiste Rousseaux and James Wilson settled the site, and Wilson built a mill. The place was called Wilson's Mills until 1794 when Rousseaux bought the mill.
  • Around 1800 Rousseaux Mills, as it had come to be known, was named Ancaster after a village in Lincolnshire, England. In 1814, 19 men charged with treason during the War of 1812 stood trial in George Rousseaux's log hotel.
  • Fifteen were convicted and eight were hanged, drawn, and quartered at nearby Burlington Heights. The remainder were exiled. The trial is known as 'The Bloody Assize' of Ancaster.
