Description From Owner:

  • Pop. 132,772. City in the Reg. Mun. of Halton at the end of L. Ontario on the QEW and C. Rd. 1, directly N across the bay from Hamilton.
  • In 1669, explorer Rene Robert Cavelier, Sieur de LaSalle, left Montreal on the first of several voyages of exploration, seeking a passage to the Far East.
  • He was accompanied by the Sulpician missionaries Francois Dollier de Casson and Rene Francois de Brehan de Galinee. They reached Burlington Bay, travelled inland for a time, and then returned to Montreal.
  • The city grew from what started as Brant's Block, a tract of 3,450 acres (1,397 ha) given to Iroquois Chief Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) by King George III for services during the American Revolutionary War.
  • The first settler was August Bates, who arrived in 1800. In 1807 James Gage purchased 338 acres (136.89 ha) from Brant's widow and laid out a village site which he called Wellington Square, honouring the Duke of Wellington.
  • In 1873 the hamlets of Wellington Square and Port Nelson amalgamated and became Burlington, believed to be a corruption of Bridlington, a resort town in Yorkshire, England.
  • In 1954, William Breckon of Burlington became the first Ontario farmer to win the World Wheat Championship at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair with his Genesee grain.
  • From Ontario Place Names 2007 David E. Scott Ph. 866 471 4123 or 905 680 7884
