Westminster, Middlesex, ON, CA

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

 
Dorchester Station, Dorchester North, Middlesex, ON, CA

This village is on the Great Western Railway main line on the north bank of the Thames River South Branch, across from the Village of Dorchester.

 
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.

Township.  In 1851 when the county boundaries became effective as a result of the implementation of the Durham Report the township of Dorchester was divided between the new Elgin and Middlesex counties.
