  • Notes 
    • In 1853 the County Council purchased 3% acres of land between Frederick and Lancaster streets for a site for a Grammar School, paying therefore *160 ($640). A deed dated 1st January, 1855, conveyed this property to the joint use of the Grammar and Common schools. The late trustees of S. S. No. 5 Waterloo, were Rev. F. W. Bindeman, Mr. William Davidson and Mr. George Jantz. Mr. Michael McNab was principal of the Frederick schools at a salary of 75 ($300) per annum. The census taken just before incorporation shows the number of children of school age, within the proposed village limits, to be 181.
