Pioneers of Hibbert

The 1879 atlas mentions the following: Arthur COLQUHOUN and John MILLER, both arrived in 1848. Another MILLER, George, arrived in 1849. William Johnson says that the first settler was "probably" Robert DONKIN, who had a tavern. Johnson also mentions these folks: Thomas FOX, Thomas McGOEY, David OUGHTON, and William MAUGHAN.

Huron County Library has put online many assessment rolls for 1842. This is basically a list of residents of the area in 1842; it tells you who was living there and how much land they owned. Read their introduction first and then go to their Hibbert Township page.

See also the new Perth County Pioneers page for visitors' submissions of their pioneer info.
