PREFACE

In September, 1850, Mr. John Lovell of St. Nicholas Street,Montreal , commenced publishing the Canada Directory of subscribers,towns, and villages in British North America.

When the Directory was projected, it was intended that Villageshaving a population of less than four to five hundred, should notbe included in its pages, and it was supposed that returns twohundred and fifty to three hundred places, at most, would be given.There were over over five hundred and fifty localities in theDirectory.

In the course of his tour through the Province, while collectingthe materials for the present work, the Editor, Robert W.S. MacKay,I ound that a very strong desire existed I or "A General Gazeteer ofthe British North American Provinces" and many of the mostimf luential gentlemen in every section of the Country that hevisited, pledged him their co-operation and support in such anundertaking .

In this extraction, we have taken the place names and lists o.Iprofessionals and trades of Brant County contained within theCanada Directory. Tuscarora Township, one of the six townships ofBrant County, was not included in the Directory.
