Norfolk County, on the north shore of Lake Erie in Ontario, Canada,
first known as the Long Point Settlement of Upper Canada. Its earliest
settlers arrived in the 1790s.
This web site provides resources for family historians, including:
-- transcriptions of local historical documents,
-- data about founding settlers and their descendants,
-- maps, historical perceptions, and visitors' queries,
much of it based on original research and exclusive to this site.
In particular, we would draw your attention to four site features:
our primary effort: the Births-Marriages-Death Etc.
Contributions and Group Photos.
Norfolk County originally consisted of seven townships: Charlotteville, Houghton, Middleton, Townsend, Walsingham,
Woodhouse (and until 1820, Rainham and Walpole, which are now
part of neighboring Haldimand County).
