Leeds County, Ontario, Canada was first surveyed in 1792 in preparation for the United Empire Loyalists settlers. In 1850, Leeds County merged with Grenville to create the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville.

Lemuel Mallory was born in 1771. He was the son of Nathaniel Mallory and Abiah Beardsley.

He married Amy Patterson.

In May, 1790 Lemuel petitioned for land and was granted 200 acres.

In 1800 he filed a claim for the west half of lot 21 and the east half of lot 22 on the Broken Front in Yonge Township. The property had previously been granted to Ephraim Eyers.

In 1803 Lemuel filed another claim for the east half of Lot 20 front, the west half of the north end of lots 21 and 22 front, and Lot 25 in concession 2.

Lemuel was assessed in Yonge Township in 1805.

In 1820, Lemuel's son Price bought parts of Lot 23 and 24 in the Broken Front of Yonge from William Larue. He transferred the property to his father Lemuel and when his father died, he transferred it to his brother Archibald who had lived there

In 1832, Lemuel applied for a patent for his property.

On February 5, 1833, Lemuel Mallory and a son and a stranger from Jones Mills, Ontario attempted to cross the river near Hammond. The son and the stranger fell through the ice near Grenadier Island and drowned. Lemuel hung onto the ice and shouted for help, but finally let go and drowned too.


His son, Price, inherited the property and sold it to William Andress.

After his death, Amy married ...Beach.

The first European settlements in Ontario were after the American Revolution when 5,000 loyalists left the new United States.
