Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 2,883. In Turnberry T., Huron C., at the confluence of the North and South branches of the Maitland R. and C. Rds. 4 & 86, 112 km N of London.
  • Wingham's first settler came from Owen Sound to try his luck in the northern part of Huron C., which had just been opened in the late 1850s.
  • Wingham is only 80 km S of Owen Sound, but to get here in 1858, Edward Farley and his family had to take a roundabout route with all their possessions.
  • From Owen Sound they went by boat to Collingwood, and from there by the Northern RaIlway te Toronto. From there they took the Grand Trunk Railway to Stratford.
  • There Farley hired teams and wagons, but the roads were so bad the teams left the family at Blyth and turned back. Farley then rounded up two teams of oxen and got as far as Bodwin in Morris T., where the road ended.
  • he built a huge raft on which the family piled its possessions and floated downstream to the site of presentd-day Wingham, which Farley named Lower Wingham after Wingham in Kent, England
  • When the post office was established in 1862, the name was shortened to Wingham.
