  • Note*: November 1853; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; “Early in 1853 the West End had hopes of having a road near that part of the village which would lead to the Bay. Already for some years Railroad Street and the old Percy Road had existed, but they desired an opening to the bay similar to the Presqu’Ile Gravel road then under construction. By November, this Gravel Road had only reached as far north as the pond of G. Gillett but by 1856, it had reached Mallory’s Corners.” The Tobey Book, ChapterX (1853), pg. 250
  • Note: circa 1860; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; "In 1853 the road shown as the gravel road, running from Brighton north through the township, was surveyed by Josiah Proctor and a contract for construction of the south part was let to Pat Terrill and was built under the foremanship of Wm. Drake. When it became known that this new highway was to come into being, people began building in centres on the new road. Thus we hve the new Hilton, Newcomb'sMills and Codrington. These villages grew up and there was opportunity in them for doing and of making things required by the people. Kankerville had in it at one time a flour mill, then north the old Davidson saw mill, the Geo. Davidson sash and door factory (turning lathe), the Richmond saw and plaster mill, Johnson match factory, the Geo. Gillett stave mill and cooiper works, the Dan Tompkins cooper and wood works, the Tom Faucet cooper works and the Potter Weavers, a store and toll gate operated by J. M. Maybee and boasted of a population of 200. Thence to Wade's Corners." This piece was written by F. O. Wade and appeared in the Brighton Ensign under the title "Origin, Early History of Brighton Township". It is now contained in a small booklet at Brighton Public Library.
