  • Notes 
    • History of Scarboro. Published 1898

      We get a quaint little peep of life in the bush from the records of the Walton family, John Walton, born in Cumberland, England, in 1799, emigrated to Canada, with his parents, in 1818. Having worked in the lead mines in England, he turned his knowledge to account by sinking wells. Many of those in the neighbourhood of Gooderham and Worts' distillery were sunk by John Walton. In 1823 he settled in Scarboro, on Lot 35, Concession 2, and Lot 35, Concession 3, for which he paid $1 an acre. He afterwards sold the north half to Robert Oliver, and lived on the south half. He married Mary Thomson, third daughter of the first settler in Scarboro.

      Mrs. Walton carried her butter and eggs to York market, a distance of ten miles, by a footpath through the woods. She received four pence a pound for her butter, or one York-shilling for two pounds, and the same for her eggs per dozen, taking groceries and other necessaries instead of cash. One takes an interest in learning that at the tend of three years the family fortunes had prospered well enough to provide the worthy daughter of a brave mother with a mare called Kate and a side-saddle on which she might ride to market.

      After two years more, the industrious couple procured a second steed, and, with ingenious fingers, fashioned for the team a set of harness, from strips of basswood bark.
