Name of creator
In 1792, the United Counties of Northumberland and Durham were officially created in a proclamation made by Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe. The proclamation divided Upper Canada in 19 Counties for representation purposes. The United Counties are bounded by Lake Ontario in the south, Hastings County in the east, Ontario County in the west and Peterborough and Victoria Counties in the north.
Item was in the custody of Hugh Bedford-Jones before being passed to his estate. Item was in the custody of Bill Goodwin, son-in-law, before being donated to Trent University Archives in 2002.
Scope and content
Item includes a collection of signatures, notes, and documents pasted into a copy of the "Annual Report on Normal, Model, Grammar and Common Schools...," 1857.
