Ontario Ancestors Essex Branch Webinar - The Rising Village: An Early History of the Town of Essex


October 18, 2023    
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Essex County Branch of Ontario Ancestors presents a free Zoom webinar “The Rising Village: An Early History of  Essex, Ontario”, with Laurie Brett.

Laurie notes in her book:
Before it was a town, before it was a village, before the Canada Southern Railway became the defining landmark of a small settlement  called Essex Centre, there was a primitive road following a high ridge through the middle of Essex County. The Rising Village begins on that high ridge. It chronicles the arrival of the first settler families of Talbot Road West in the early 19th century, traces the rapid development of a small metropolis, and introduces a colourful cast of influential and extraordinary individuals.”
