Grey County had been open to prospective settlers for about twenty years. There was still crown land available and the prospects for successful venture looked good.
    Asa applied for and received a land grant in St. Vincent Township. The grant had been obtained through his efforts at Toronto. The crown had granted him the east half of lots 7 and 8 in the XIIth Concessions. We think Asa had visited the land in 1858. He probably travelled by rail to Collingwood, and by steamship to Meaford. For the rest of the trip he may have rented a horse and wagon in Meaford and driven to his property. The 15, 16 sideroad, and the Xith line road and possibly part of 9, 10 sideroad would have been passable at that time."

    In 1862 Johnson's son owned Lot 6, conc 12 and the NW corner of Lot 5, and Johnson owned the east part of Lot 5 and the west part of Lots 7,8. John Marsh went there in 1843 (see account of trip at John Marsh)" per GEDCOM of Kevin Handy, Mar 18 2007.6
  • Residence*: 1859; Conc 12 Lots 7 & 8, St. Vincent Twp., Grey Co., Canada West; "Asa and his family moved to St. Vincent Twp., Grey County, Ontario in 1859." per "Descendants of Thomas Dorman Sanford" sent to me via email from Linda Smith, Dec. 19, 2004.
    Also: "Asa had become unhappy with conditions in Carrying Place and Brighton, and had been looking for opportunities that might come along. Grey County had been open to prospective settlers for about twenty years. There was still crown land available and the prospects for successful venture looked good. Asa applied for and received a land grant in St. Vincent Township. The grant had been obtained through his efforts at Toronto. The crown had granted him the east half of lots 7 and 8 in the XIIth Concessions. We think Asa had visited the land in 1858. He probably travelled by rail to Collingwood, and by steamship to Meaford. For the rest of the trip he may have rented a horse and wagon in Meaford and driven to his property. The 15, 16 sideroad, and the Xith line road and possibly part of 9, 10 sideroad would have been passable at that time." Exerpt from the "Weller Family History," Volume 2 by Burton Weller Eagles.4
