Thorah township opened in 1820. Two years later in 1822, the first settlers arrived: Ensign Turner, a half-pay officer and J.E. White, the surveyor.

Donald Cameron also appears on the map, who in 1824 brought a number of settlers from Glengarry amongst them were the Campbells, The McRaes (MacRaes), the McDonalds (MacDonalds) and Camerons. Donald Cameron was also one Beaverton's first councillors.

In 1827, the balance of the township was surveyed by Gibson and Scottish settlers from Islay Island including Donald Calder, the MacMillans (McMillans) and McFadgens (MacFadgens) arrived. In 1830, more Highlanders arrived including John Bruce, John Gunn, James Gordon, Frasers, McLellans and Neil Murray.

Alexander Hamilton, proprietor of the Hamilton House, a hotel constructed in the 1870s appears on this map. So does George R. Procter, a merchant in Beaverton who owned hundreds of acres of land at the time of this maps publication.
