Berczy Toronto Assignment Of Deed

Appendix A. Settlers

A community is a group of people living in the same locality, with its own identity of character, and possibly sharing an organized political, municipal, and social system. Without people, there is no community.

Richmond Hill's first people were the native Indians. Throughout the pre-European history of this area, there were Indian villages, hunting camps, and travel routes, only now being identified through archaeological studies.

With the arrival of the European settlers, the Indian population declined and until recently, their former presence has been forgotten or ignored.

European settlement of the Richmond Hill area began with the development of Yonge Street and the coming of William Berczy and his settlers, mainly of German origin, from the United States in 1794. As Yonge Street was opened, land became available for the Loyalists and the British, from 1795 on. In 1797, a small group of French �migr�s settled on the lands in the north part of the community.

Land Settlement in Richmond Hill

Although many of the original land title holders sold their properties soon after taking out their patents, a list of the patent holders and the basis of their grants is always of interest.
