Categories: Lincoln County, Upper Canada


Thorold Township in Lincoln County, Ontario, was originally settled by veterans of Butler's Rangers in 1784. At the time, the township had no name; it was simply labelled Township No. 9. It wasn’t until 1793 that John Graves Simcoe, the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, named the township after Sir John Thorold, an English baronet and Member of Parliament for Lincolnshire from 1779 to 1796.
