Name of creator
Martyn's (Martin's) mill and dam was situated between Hilliard's Dam and Dickson's Dam on the Otonabee River immediately north of Judge Denistoun's Inverlea estate on the west side of the River. It was very close to the Otonabee and Smith Townships border. Beside the dam was a grist mill. A number of maps and plans were drawn up of the dam when a chancery case, Martyn vs. Nicholls, took place December 22, 1874. In the 1870/71 County of Peterborough Directory, published by J.C. Connor, three Martyns: John, M. and Richard are listed as millers.
Scope and content
This fonds consists of four maps dated between 1875 and 1905:: Martyn's Mill on the Otonabee River; land flooded by the Otonabee River in Smith Township; the Otonabee River between Dickson's and Martyn's Dams; and the acreage between Catchacoma Lake and Gull Lake.
