  • Notes 
    • In a well-written article by Mr. Geo. D. Lewis, we find that " seventy years ago the beautiful agricultural country, in the midst of which Ayr is situated, was an unbroken wilderness, the only denizens being occasional wandering Indians, large and tolerably well-behaved bears, fierce and stealthy lynx, and wildcats, and innumerable roving wolves." About 1824, Abel Mudge, a member of the family who settled Mudge Hollow, now Canning, erected grist and saw mills, where the Ayr Agricultural Works now stand. A few settlers had taken up land, but had made little progress in clearing their farms; among these were the Dobkins, the Marlatts, Luces, and Kirkwalls. None of their descendants are now left in the neighbourhood, Mr. Mudge died in 1832, and his son Chapman disposed of the mills, which eventually fell into the hands of Mr. Daniel Manley.
