Lambton County, Ontario Canada Names and Places -I-J-K

Inwood
The only surviving village in Lambton County that sprung up as a result of the lumbering and stave mills. It is now the center of a good agriculture district and is a fairly busy village. Contrary to the accepted belief that it obtained its name by reason of being built up in the center of a dense wooded district, it was really named by C. H. Moore, one of the members of the stave mill firm, after a pretty town on the Hudson River, New York State.

Ipperwash
The name given to the Beach lying along the shore of Lake Huron between Kettle Point and Stoney Point. Many cottages of the summer colony are here, and in summer months presents a gala scene. The drive on the sands of the beach at this point can be followed for some miles and is one of the most pleasant to be found anywhere. As far as can be ascertained the name has no historic meaning, but means "upper wash."

Jericho
A post office located on Lot 14, Concession 8, Township of Bosanquet, and bears its name from the Bible reference to the place near Jerusalem. It is about 2 miles south and west of Thedford, and was expected to be the station point on the Grand Trunk Railway instead of Thedford, it being on a high ridge, but difficulty over securing the land for the station site, was located where Thedford now stands.

Jura
A post office opened at Lot 4, Con. 8, Bosanquet Township, in 1866, with James McCordic as first postmaster, and called after one of the Hebride Islands.

Kertch
At one time a post office on Lot 26, Con. 5 (London Road), but has not operated for some time. This post office was opened shortly after the close of the Crimean war and was no doubt called after Kertch, a strait separating Crimea from the mainland.

Kettle Point
A point seven miles almost due north from Forest on Lake Huron, and so named from the peculiar formation of stone found imbedded in the shale. These stones are perfectly rounded, varying in size from probably a foot in diameter to many times that size. Geologists and scientists have so far failed to explain this seeming freak of nature.

Another peculiar formation on the shore line at this place is the appearance of the shale which forms the banks. Its regularity in shapes of long oblong blocks, give it the appearance of modern mason work.
The Kettle Point Reservation occupies the land lying along this portion of the lake, covering an area of two thousand one hundred acres.

Kimball
A post office and station on the M. C. R., Moore Township, named after James Kimball, the first postmaster, and proprietor of the store, when the Canada Southern Railway was built. It has at the present writing, two stores and is a thrifty hamlet.

Kinnaird
A post office opened at Lot 12, Concession 11, Bosanquet, and named after a village near Dundee in Scotland, of the same name, and means "at the head of the height." It operated for a number of years but is now closed.

Kingscourt
Arthur J. Kingston, County Longford, Ireland, was the owner of a large tract of land in Warwick. Township, developing what is known as the Ellarton Salt Plant, and later constructed a tram way to intersect the then Grand Trunk Railway. Mr. Kingston's Estate in Ireland, was known as Kingscourt and the Railroad in compliment to him, gave the Junction the name.
