Daniel, possibly the son of Daniel and Lydia Mun of Massachusetts, may have been born in 1781.
Daniel Munn emigrated to Upper Canada and in 1806 secured a crown grant as a settler on land located at the corner of the Sixth Line and Dundas Highway, Trafalgar Township. The crossroads became known as Munn's Corners. Daniel and his wife Millicent opened a tavern and stage house on the southeast corner at some point before 1814. At around this time Daniel also became Trafalgar's first town clerk.
During the War of 1812 Daniel served as a private in the 2nd York Militia with his brother-in-law, Ezekiel Post. From November 6 to 10, 1813, Daniel served in Captain William Thompson’s Company of the 2nd York Militia. 
On February 26, 1814, Daniel’s tavern licence was renewed. 
From September 25 to October 1, 1814, Daniel served in Captain Thomas Merrigold’s Company of the 2nd York Militia. 
Munn's Tavern was the site of an affray in which John Holliday, a gunner with Captain Alexander Cameron's Company, was killed.
The 1816 Trafalgar Township Assessment recorded him owning 400 acres. 
On November 27, 1817, Daniel and 15 other men from the township attended a meeting in his inn to draft a reply to Mr. Gourlay’s questions. 
As the little community grew, a log cabin school was erected on the Munns' property. It doubled as a church on Sunday. Daniel also sold the land for a cemetery (Munn's United Church Cemetery) to a group of local men whose names appear on the deed dated November 5, 1820 (it was not registered in the Halton County Registry Office until July 27, 1822).
In 1822, Daniel died and was buried in Munn’s Pioneer Cemetery. 
The Estate of Daniel Munn sold land to his son Jordan in 1841.
