  • Notes 
    • MANDERSON, James, Sr . (d.). Among the very first settlers on the "Paisley Block" was the late James Manderson, Sr. He was b. in Roxburghshire, Scot., in 1804, and came to Canada in 1830 as a young man of twenty-six years, and set. on the farm (100 acres, lot 21, con. 4B.) now owned by his son, James, Jr. The McCorkindles, Alexanders and Fergusons had come in the year before and made small clearings on the old concession road, but, as a matter of fact, there were no roads in this section at the time, and young Manderson followed the blazed path from Guelph Village to the farm that he had bought from the Canada Co. His brother John came with him and they set to work with a will and soon had a log shanty erected and a clearing made. They were energetic young men and cleared their farm and lived to become influential and prosperous citizens of the community. Both were members of the Presbyterian church, John being an Elder for many years. He never married. He was b. in 1806, and d. on the "Paisley Block" farm in 1875. The late James Manderson, Sr., m.
