  • Note: 1815; Cramahe Twp., The Corners, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "'Old Joe', a Loyalist from Vermont, settled in the 1790's at Lakeport (known initially as Cramahe Harbour, Colborne Harbour, or Cat Hollow). Shortly afterward, he was followed by a group of settlers. They included Aaron Greeley, an American surveyor who came at Keeler's request to lay out a town site. But it is 'Young Joe' who is considered Colborne's founder. He was its first merchant, opening a store in 1815, and its first postmaster. He donated land for a public square, and to both the Methodist (now United) and Presbyterian churches. He was also justice of the peace." per "Homesteads: Early buildings and families from Kingston to Toronto" by Margaret McBurney & Mary Byers, 1979, pg. 144.3

  • Note: 1815; Cramahe Twp., The Corners, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "In 1815, at age 27, Joesph A. Keeler opened a small store in Colborne that included a post office, and he became the village’s first postmaster. His father had served in that capacity before him at the Keeler’s Creek settlement in Lakeport. As well as being merchant, builder and postmaster, Joseph A. was also Justice of the Peace for the whole Newcastle District (later the United Counties of Northumberland and Durham, plus lands to the north that were labelled on maps of the period simply as “Indian lands”). This was a very important political office and it demonstrates the esteem in which the Keeler family was held, not just by the residents of this area, but by people in positions of authority within the government of the day." https://heritagecramahe.ca/keeler-family/

  • Note: circa 1835; Colborne, Northumberland Co., Upper Canada; "As Cramahc Township's principal settlement, Colborne deserved a name worthy of its prominence. But in its earliest days, it was known simply as 'The Corners," or "Keeler's Tavern," However, legend has it that, after a visit by Upper Canada's Lieutenant-Governor, Sir John Colborne, to Joseph Abbott Keeler, it was decided by a committee of Ihe township's worthies that the village be christened Colborne, in honour of Sir John." page 38 of "How Firm A Foundation" by Eileen Argyris.
    Note: Sir John Colborne was lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada from 1828 to 1836. If this "legend" has any documentary support, the naming of the village may have been in the area of 1834 to 1836. Woould love to see some sort of specific document to support this. (Dan Buchanan, Sep 29 2021)7
