Lambton County, Ontario Canada Names and Places, Introductory 

In submitting this history of the names and places in Lambton County it would be unfair to not place the credit for the original idea of recording and perpetuating the story of Lambton County where it belongs.
Early in the year of 1920 the late Daniel Fraser McWatt, the then Senior Judge of Lambton County had gathered much of the data of the records in this book contained, but before he had an opportunity of compiling it, he was called by death. Since that time the writer has gradually gathered together the information on the remaining places, and I now give it to the public for what it is worth.

The reader will appreciate the difficulty of getting authentic data regarding many places, and if in some instances it differs from the knowledge you already have, you will know that reports of our correspondents vary somewhat, and in each case the most strongly supported report has been accepted.

The main object of these chronicles is to preserve the story of the names and places in Lambton County, many of which places have even now ceased to exist and in a few years, as the present residents pass away will be entirely forgotten.

The research work evolved in securing the required information for this history has been extremely interesting and while it has been somewhat imperfectly compiled, yet we trust it will recall many pleasant memories to the older people, and be a source of information to the rising generation.
