- In 1805, area native peoples gave up land on the north shore of Lake Ontario in what is now Oakville, Ontario. They kept the land surrounding the lower reaches of the Twelve and Sixteen Mile Creeks.
Samuel Street Wilmot surveyed the area and laid out two concessions north of Dundas Street and four concessions south of Dundas, with numbering going north and south from Dundas. Lot numbers go east to west. The names on the survey are names of those who received the original land grants resulting in a deed or patent.
According to the Wikipedia entry linked here, Trafalgar Township was one of the three townships surveyed by Samuel S. Wilmot.
