Norfolk County Windham Township

"This fine township lies to the north of Charlotteville, to the west of Townsend and to the east of Middleton... It is rectangular in shape... In form it resembles Townsend, although strictly Windham is the only township in the county which is perfectly regular in its shape... The south-eastern part of Windham was settled at a very early period, more especially in the vicinity of what is now the village of Colborne. Here the Beemers, Culvers, Bowlbys and others, had settled at the close of the last century. Soon after this a settlement was established on the Round Plains, but it was many years before the interior portion of the township was occupied... During the last five years of the last half century, the course of settlement has flowed steadily on"

[1877 Historical Atlas of Haldimand & Norfolk Counties]
