  • Residence: 1869; Conc 7, Lot 3, Brighton Twp., Newcombs Mills, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "The village of Orland was first known as Newcombs Mills. In 1869 there was a grist mill built on the site of the present mill by James and Joseph Newcomb, the former living where Hazelwoods and the latter where Raycrafts live now. " (first paragraph of story entitled "Log of S.S. No. 20, Brighton; Orland School - Tweedsmuir Histories, Reel 2)
    Note: This confirms what otherwise seems evident by the Land Registry Records (first transaction in 1871) that the mill at Orland was not built until 1869 (or so) - 16 years after the Breakaway. This puts in doubt the often-repeated story of the mill concession at Orland by the Newcomb's coming into play soon after the Breakaway in 1853. The question remains: When was the dam built at Newcombs Mills to carry the highway straight north to Codrington??? At the same time, likely, which means the Percy Road and the various side routes into the villages of Newcombs Mills and Codrington were in use well into the 1870's.12

A few years ago it was only woods, but now through the energy of the Messrs. Newcomb in erecting their excellent grist mill, there is springing up a nice little village. Mr. C. T.
