Township including the portion of the City of London south of the Thames River.

 
Ontario, Canada

The Province of Upper Canada was separated from the Province of Quebec in 1791 to create a colony that was subject to English law and the protestant Church of England as opposed to the remainder, which became the Province of Lower Canada, subject to French civil law and with an extablished Roman Catholic church.

As a result of the revolts in 1837 against the established administrations in both Lower and Upper Canada the two colonies were merged in 1841 by the Act of Union (1840).  Formally the western province was Canada West, although most people continued to refer to it as Upper Canada.

This entry is used retrospectively for events occuring in the colony of Upper Canada from its founding in 1791 to its merger into the Colony of Canada as Canada West in 1841, and for events occuring in Canada West from 1841 to Confederation in 1867 when it became the province of Ontario within the Dominion of Canada. This is consistent with the way that events are described in official documents such as censuses recorded after 1867.

Cause: influenzal broncho-Pneumonia, 8 days

"Influenza" is an acute respiratory disease caused by a virus. The word entered the English language from Spanish as a result of military secrecy during World War I. Soldiers on both sides of the conflict were affected in epidemic numbers but this was not revealed to the public. Only in Spain, which was a non-combatant, was the epidemic reported, so it became known by its Spanish name. Previously the symptoms would have been reported as "cattarh" or "la Grippe".
