Cambellford was named after two British soldiers, Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Campbell and Major David Campbell who arrived to Canada after receiving land grants from the British Government. Robert died in 1836 and left everything to David, who in turn built a syndicate with James Cockburn and Nesbitt Kirchoffer to develop Campbellford. Both men are shown as significant landowners at the time of this maps publication.

James Marshall Ferris was born in Ireland and came to Canada in 1850. He represented Northumberland East as a liberal in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1875 to 1886. He also served as postmaster of Campbellford, Reeve of Seymour Township,  and warden of the United Counties of Northumberland and Durham. In 1892, the Ferris Family purchased a large tract of wooded land which basically remained untouched and natural. After passing through generations of the Ferris Family, it was donated on the condition it be available to the public and remain in its natural state. In 1962, Ferris Woods, as it was then known became Ferris Provincial Park.

Alexander Bonnycastle, grandson of Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Richard Henry Bonnycastle was a grain buyer and member of one of the early families that settled Campbellford. Today his red Gothic home is featured on a walking tour of historic Campbellford homes.
