Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 907. In Bayham T., Elgin C., on C. Rds. 19 & 38,15 km SW of Tillsonburg. Originally known as Sandy town, the name was changed to Straffordville when the post office was established in 1851.
  • Local miller Robert James McNaughton had wanted the place to be named McNaughtonville after him, but other residents objected to his conceit.
  • McNaughton then proposed Straffordville after Sir John Byng, Earl of Strafford. Byng had served in Spain's Peninsular War 1811-1814 and was commander-in-chief of Ireland 1828-1831.

How exciting! I have always wondered how my home town was named, and I have finally found out from the information on this web site. There is a man by the name of Strafford here in Calgary, and, he,too, was interested in the origin of the name of our town. Now I can find out if there is any connection. Thanks a bunch.
