Military Grantees of Kent Parish

Carleton County

 
Submitted by Bill Flynn

In 1822, the Parish of Kent was in York County and its upper boundary was not well defined. It later became part of Carleton County. By 1851, some of the families listed in the following table can be found as far north as Perth Parish, Victoria County.

This list shows the military settlers of a large tract of land which includes Woodstock, Hartland, Perth/Andover, Medford and the Tilley area. The latter, called the Ranger Settlement is where the Royal West India Rangers settled. These made a major contribution to the settlement of that area and many of their relatives still live there.


There are many Irish names on this list.
