Scope note(s)

  • Port Hope, located in the United Counties of Northumberland and Durham, on the shore of Lake Ontario in Hope Township, was informally established in 1819. Previously Port Hope had been known by the name of Smith's Creek, and between 1815 and 1817, the town was also called Toronto. Due to the confusion caused by the use of both names, the name Port Hope, put forth by G.S. Bolton, was settled on in a public meeting in 1819. The name Port Hope was formally confirmed by the Legislature of Upper Canada on March 6, 1834.
