Scott township was names after Thomas Scott, a lawyer from Scotland who was appointed Chief Justice of Upper Canada in the early 1800s. Many of the first settler families are featured on this map such as James K. Vernon who was the first reeve of the township and its first postmaster.

Leaskdale was named after George Leask who is shown as several plots at the time of the maps publication. He became postmaster in 1857, a position he held for 50 years and with his brother James also built a mills in the area. He also donated land and helped establish a Presbyterian Church in Leaksdale which opened in 1864.
