Georgina was named in honour of George III, by the first Lieutenant- Governor of Upper Canada, John Graves Simcoe. United Empire Loyalist began to settle here in the early 1800s. Two of Georgina’s most prominent early settlers were retired naval officer Captain William Bourchier, who founded the Town of Sutton, and retired army officer Captain William Johnson, who founded the Village of Pefferlaw. Descendants of both men are found on this map.

In the 1830s, several prominent families from England established country estates on the shores of Lake Simcoe. The most prominent of these new arrivals were the family of Susan Sibbald. The Sibbald’s first home, Eildon Hall is located in what is now Sibbald Provincial Park. Eildon Hall is also found on this map.

In the 1840s, William Bourchier built a magnificent Regency Manor overlooking Lake Simcoe. He named this property ‘The Briars’, after a friends residence in St. Helena. The Briars was purchased in 1870, by Susan Sibbald’s son, Dr. Frank Sibbald. Frank Sibbald established a prized dairy farm on his estate. The Briars barn which at one time housed championship shorthorns, is now the home of Canada's oldest summer theatre - the Red Barn Theatre.
