  • Notes 
    • In 1853, William Miller, a descendant of United Empire Loyalists and a distinguished Galt lawyer, was appointed the first judge of the newly-formed County of Waterloo, and served in that capacity for thirty-five years. Miller, who was born in Niagara-on-the-Lake, was articled to a law firm in Niagara. He was called to the bar at an early age and practiced in Dundas, later moving to Galt. He was a community-minded citizen and served as an elder of Knox's Presbyterian Church for twenty-eight years.
