St. Catherines is named after Catherine Hamilton, the wife of Robert Hamilton, an successful merchant of Queenston and a landowner with mills on Twelve Mile Creek.  The growing community, originally known as The Twelve or Shipman's Corners, was renamed St. Catherines in her honour after her death in 1796.
