Encyclopedia > Watford, Ontario

Watford is located in Lambton County, Ontario, Canada.


History

Watford was first settled in 1851 at what was known as Brown's Corners, a stagecoach stop between the village of Warwick and Brooke township. The Great Western Railway was built in 1856 and caused the settlement to be relocated to near the tracks, in its present location. Watford was either named for the Watford in England, or by Col. Brown for his home town of Watford, Ireland.


There was a great fire in the 1880s on November 5th that destroyed much of the town during a Guy Fawkes night (Bonfire Night) celebration.
