    • Probate: Will 19 Sept 1846 Book 18 Folio 342

      Teacher at the Carrville Public School

      On the building committee with Rev. Peter for St. Pauls Presbyterian Vaughan

      According to Volume A of the Abstract Index to Deed Titles for Vaught Township, the Crown patent for the west half of Lot 19, originally comprised of 100 acres, was granted to George McBride in May of 1801. In June of 1835, the lot was sold to John Velie, who immediately resold the property to Donald McNaughton in November of 1835.

      The 1851-52 census of Vaughan Township provided additional information about Lot 19, Concession 5. The agricultural returns for 1851 indicated that Donald McNaughton farmed 100 acres on Lot 19, 60 of which were under cultivation. The produce from the farm included butter, cheese, barrels of pork, wool, 39 yards of flannel, wheat, peas, oats, and potatoes. Donald, aged 42 years old and his wife, Isobel, aged 37 years old, were both born in Scotland. Their children had all been born in Canada, including the oldest, Ann, aged 16 years old. The family occupied a one storey log house according to the census. In 1861, the family still occupied Lot 19 according to the 1860-1861 census, however, their dwelling had changed to a one and one half storey frame house, and an additional ten acres had been cleared.

      By 1871, McNaughton had acquired 500 acres, five dwelling houses and five barns and stables in Vaughan Township according to Schedule 3 of the 1871 census. His home farm remained on Lot 19 however, and in 1895, his son James was granted title of the property for the sum of $1.00. The map of Vaughan Township in the 1878 Historical Atlas of the County of York illustrated a structure on the west half of Lot 19 close to Weston Road, west of the archaeological site A1Gv-165. As the material from the archaeological site is characteristic of the early nineteenth-century, it is suggested at that 1878 Atlas structure on Lot 19 marks the location of the frame house listed in the 1861 census. The archaeological site, therefore, marks the location of the earlier log cabin noted in the 1851 census. [13, 19]
