Last Name:

This database represents a growing collection of transcriptions of names and other information from a variety of nineteenth-century directories. The directories frequently have a much larger scope than Halton county, but only the local names have been extracted. Not every Community has been entered yet. The entries are typically for local businessmen, but the later directories also include many farm owners.

Where appropriate, copies of business advertisements have been scanned and linked to the record. Information from the following directories is currently in the database:

  • Canada Directory of Professional and Business Men, Montreal: John Lovell, 1851
  • Canada Directory of Professional and Business Men, Montreal: John Lovell, 1857
  • Fuller's counties of Peel and Halton Directory for 1866 & 1867, Blackburn's City Steam Press, Toronto, 1866
