Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 19,262. In the Reg. Mun. of Niagara, on the S shore of L. Ontario at Forty Mile Cr. and the QEW, 26 km. SE of Hamilton.
  • United Empire Loyalists began a settlement in 1783 when the place was known as The Forty because of its location at the mouth of Forty Mile Cr.
  • It was also called Butlersburg for Col. John Butler, a United Empire Loyalist whose troops were early settlers.
  • A town meeting held on April 5, 1790, at present-day Grimsby, which was then called Township # 6, marked the beginning of local self government in what is now Ontario.
  • Such matters as the height of fences and the registration of livestock brands were discussed at the meeting.
  • St. Andrews Anglican Church, completed in 1825, was the third church built on the site by a congregation formed almost 40 years earlier.
  • The post office was established as Grimsby in 1816, named after a town in Lincolnshire, England, now in Humberside.
