The land surrounding the western end of Lake Ontario
Rich in history and heritage

 

Come join us at the Holiday Inn, Burlington to discover the heroic stories of the early people of The Head of the Lake and to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Stoney Creek.

Our Loyalist monument was donated to the City of Hamilton by Stanley Mills and unveiled by his wife on May 24, 1929. It is located in front of the old Wentworth County Court House (now the McMaster University Continuing Education Centre) on Main Street East in the downtown core. Each year, we celebrate Loyalist Day on June 19th at the monument with a service of honour and remembrance. For more details contact this website:

 2007 UEL Conference

Bicentennial Branch (Southwestern Ontario)

About the Bicentennial Branch

The Bicentennial Branch is the meeting place of the descendants of those families who relocated to Essex-Kent Counties of South Western Ontario or the adjacent United States as a result of their loyalty to the British Crown during the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783).

About the Loyalists who settled here 

Following the American Revolutionary War, Lieutenant Colonel William Caldwell obtained by treaty with the Indians 97 lots along the north shore of Lake Erie as settlement lots for Loyalists. The native deed for their properties was granted in 1784. The New Settlement came to be inhabited by a mixture of soldiers and religious pacifists held together by their common loyalty to the British Crown.

The commitment that the New Settlement pioneers made to their new homes was an absolute one - one that would become apparent not only in the land itself, but in the social and cultural evolution of the area.

Most of the members of the Bicentennial Branch are descendants of the numerous refugees who arrived in the Detroit to Amherstburg area from the states of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland and New York between 1783 and 1790.
