North Crosby Township
"There have been several thesis and papers written (some at Queen's University in Kingston ) about Benjamin Tett, the general merchant in Newboro. As well, Tett's extensive correspondence and business records are housed at the Queen's University Archives. As well as being a general store merchant, Tett was a millowner, lumber agent, coronor, local politician, postmaster. Many of his records mention local families from Newboro, Westport and North Crosby. As well, the Queen's University Archives holds a few other records to do with Westport. For example, I believe that some of the papers of the Foley family (Westport merchants) have been a recent acquisition there. The Archives of Ontario has microfilmed copies of some of the municipal records for Westport, Newboro and North Crosby as well. There is a little history of Newboro done in 1967 called "The Isthmus" but generally it is anecdotal and not much concrete information. Land records for Westport and North Crosby are housed at the Registry Office in Brockville and Queen's Archives also has some of the original land books for Leeds and Grenville. South Crosby, Bastard and South Burgess and Rear of Leeds and Lansdowne all did have local histories done and there is a bit of overlap into North Crosby sometimes in these histories."

The book also covers Newboro. The village, before its incorporation in 1876 was partly in South Crosby and partly in North Crosby, but I covered most of its history up to 1939. As an appendix, I included the 1842 and 1848 census as they are not readily available plus information from the Johnstown District Assessments from 1820 to 1849. Westport details from its founding in 1828 to 1939 and North Crosby settlements from 1819 to 1939. The notes list 170 sources of where the material used can be acquired.
