Tales From The Niagara Peninsula
by Lini R. Grol    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
Would you like to know how Welland got its name and became the County seat? When it was only a mere village named Merritville with not even a right to vie for the honor of acquiring that much fought for the County's seat? For at that time there were already three thriving and good size towns in the direct neighborhood.
You don't need to believe it all, for, being a new Canadian, I was not there. But an old wizard who knows about these things enlightened me, and I am telling it to you in my own words.
It was in 1851, when Port Robinson, then still known as Port Beverley, prospered with smithies, mills and Inns. When Cooksmills, true to its name, had several mills and thriving merchants of repute, and Fonthill, boasted quite a few proud men who'd signed their names on deeds and legal papers all over the Niagara Peninsula.
It was about that time that Chippawa chucked its old name Wellandport, and Welland which had then been known, or rather little known as Aqueduct, became Merritville. Yet, though it changed its name, that did not make it one iota more significant.
