Settler of township lots: Lot 33, Conc. A, Stanhope

Location: The map point is the approximate location within this 100 acre Lot 33, Conc. A which runs from the west side of the channel between Kushog Lake and St. Nora Lake north of Poplar Heights Dr.

Land acquisition: This 100 acre lot was patented on September 23, 1879 according to the Township of Stanhope Patent Register but the Ontario Land Parcel Register - Stanhope (Image 137) only records James Kent who sold to His Majesty (see William Francis Kent for details).

Dates of residency: 

  • Amos Stamp was the patriarch of the Haliburton Stamp family line. While he did receive a patent for this lot, we have found no documentation that he lived here himself. The patent may have been cancelled.

  • There are no other early Stamps in the Settlers of Algonquin Highlands family tree, and no significant references to the Stamp family in In Quest of Yesterday by Nila Reynolds. Published by The Provisional County of Haliburton, Minden, Ontario 1973

Preceding landowner: The Crown
