Scarborough Twp. in historical YORK Co.

Organized in 1792 and named from the English watering-place by Mrs. Simcoe, because the clay banks on the Lake front resemble the Scarborough cliffs in England. First settler David Thomson, a Scottish stonemason.

The names on these maps are not transcribed, nor will they be included in our project. However, our databases do include transcriptions of names from early Grant/Patent RECORDS (those issued prior to 1826).

Maps at McGill University’s Digital Atlas Project cover the Post-Confederation period (late for the scope of this project). The identified lots, concessions and boundaries can be compared to earlier surveys. Names of land-owners are transcribed at McGill’s site.
