Lambton County, Ontario Canada Names and Places -R-

Ravenswood
A post office first opened at lot 61, L. R. E., Bosanquet, in 1853 John Rawlings being the first postmaster. Later it was removed to lot 55, L. R. E. It was named after a place mentioned in Sir Walter Scott's poems, yet an old settler states this post office was named from the fact that in the days when this shore line was densely wooded with pine the crows and ravens infested these woods, feeding on the carrion fish in the bay, and the woods was then known as Crow's Wood or Ravenswood. It may be this was the source of the name.

Rock Glen
The name borne by one of the beauty spots of Lambton County, situate on the Aux Sauble River near Arkona.
The river at this point winds its way between high hills densely wooded with its primeval growth of timber and with the waters rushing over the dam constructed here lends a scene many tourists go miles to gaze upon.

At this point Hydro power is developed and lights the adjoining village and furnishes power to the mills and plants in, the vicinity.

Rokeby
A post office opened in 1890 at lot twenty-five, concession nine, Broke Township, with Archibald Campbell as first postmaster. Mr. Campbell died in 1891 and his wife, Mrs. Margaret Campbell, became post mistress and remained as such until with rural mail service the post office was closed. Named after one of Sir Walter Scott's poems, "Rokeby."

Rutherford
Originally called Dawn Center, named after a Scotch Clergyman, Samuel Rutherford. It is a small village at the junction of 15 side road and the 7th concession of Dawn. The Township Hall is located there, as well as two stores, a mill, two churches and many comfortable homes.
