History

Andrew Mather and his wife, Ann Patterson, came from Belford, Northumberland County, England to Canada in the 1820's. They brought with them their family of four sons and three daughters. Andrew Mather acquired 400 acres of land, Lots 8 and 9, Concession 9, in Otonabee Township, Upper Canada. The Mather family established a farm on the land which they named "Belford Farm" in honour of their former place of residence in England. Andrew's son, Thomas P. moved several miles north of Belford Farm and built his home on the southwest corner of a cross road. The location is now known as Mather's Corners. (Taken from: Nelson, D. Gayle. Forest to Farm: Early Days in Otonabee. Keene: The Keene, Otonabee 150th Anniversary Committee, 1975.)
