    Administrative history

    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.
