Undoubtedly there were a few who were squatters living on land marked by themselves and not by a surveyor. Therefore these people are not mentioned in the Ontario Registry."
    Note: An example of "squatters" would be Alexander Chisholm who built mills on the creek where Spring Valley is now. He came in expecting to get the Crown Reserve granted to him but his wife Nancy and step-son John Singleton did not own the land until the 1820's.5

Lots 5 and 6 on the 2nd Concession were then sold to Mrs. Singleton's father, James Canniff of Ernestown. The Singleton's went to pioneer at Little Lake in Cramahe Township, near Brighton, where George and his son, Abraham, eventually had a saw-mill and lumber business. Mrs. Margaret Singleton lived until 1860." pg. 6, The Story of the Singletons, The Rambling River: History of Thurlow Township by Mary G. Plumpton
