John Tucker Williams, founder of the Williams family, came to Canada during the War of 1812. He finally settled at Port Hope and built a home calling it Penryn, after his ancestral home in Cornwall. During the Rebellion of 1837 he commanded the Durham Regiment; later represented the County in Parliament and was the first Mayor of Port Hope. His eldest son Arthur T.H. Williams is shown as a property owner at this time, which was only 4 years prior to his death after The Battle of Batoche during the North West Rebellion of 1885. His sister Emma Williams married Benjamin Seymour's only son Charles Seymour who is also shown on this map as a landowner

Penryn Park now part of the The Port Hope Golf & Country Club.
