Further Information

This historic plan of the town of York ,which after the war of 1812 became Toronto.It was drawn by Joseph Bouchette, the Admiralty surveyor of the Great Lakes.At the time when it was already the capital of Upper Canada, as designated by John Grave Simcoe, the then Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada.Prior to the establishment of York as the Capital the British had controlled their provincial operations from Niagara but that had proven vulnerable to attack from the Americans.


York was initially little more than a military outpost, although there had been settlement here for many years, ever since the land had been purchased from the indigeonous indians, the Mississaugas of the New Credit.
