History of Percy Lake

In the early 1800's, Percy Lake was one of many, many lakes in “Upper Canada” or “Canada West” that was known as Pine Lake.

In 1859, the Crown Lands Department in Canada advertised a block of land for sale in the District of Haliburton. The purpose for the sale of the land was to promote rapid settlement of the newly created townships in the District through private enterprise. The townships included in the sale were Dysart, Dudley, Harcourt, Gilford, Harburn, Bruton, Havelock, Eyre, Clyde, and Langford.

In 1861, the land was purchased by a group of English gentlemen, headed by the Honourable Mr. Justice T.C. Haliburton, and the Canada Land and Emigration Company Limited was formed under the laws of Great Britain in 1862. Percy Lake, as well as Kingscote Lake and Farquhar Lake, were named after principles in the company (reference: Early Days in Haliburton by H.R. Cummings). Continue Reading...
