Brockville free pdf Excerpt from Brockville: Illustrated- 1894 Brockville, The Island City, which derives its name from Sir Isaac Brock, occupies one of the most picturesque locations which the lavish hand of nature has carved out for the habitation of mankind. There is in connection with the naming of Brockville quite an amount of spicy history, and the older settlers often entertain the younger portion of the community, by recalling the events which led up to the period when the collection of houses and vacant lots situated at the foot of the Thousand Islands, was first called by its present name. About the year 1785, William Buell, a U. E. Loyalist, came from the Republic owing to the complications then with Great Britain, and settled on the site of the present town of Brockville. He was followed shortly after by Charles Jones, who "took up land" just east of that occupied by the first arrival. In a short time it became quite an important post, and having outgrown such ordinary names as Elizabethtown and Buell's Bay, the residents decided on rechristening the hamlet. Mr. Buell and his friends insisted on calling it Williamstown, after the first settler, William Buell, while Mr. Jones and his friends were equally positive that Charleston or Charlestown was the proper cognomen. The feeling which rose over the selection of a name became so bitter that the place was for quite a time called Snarlingtown. In 1812 during the heat of the controversy, the Governor, Sir Isaac Brock, visited the hamlet and was appealed to for a solution of the difficulty. He complied with the request, using his own name, and the place was called Brockville, by which it has since been known. The first act of incorporation of the town was in 1834, when it was divided into two wards. In 1840 a new act of incorporation was passed.
