    • Daniel Tye, born in Suffolk, England, obtained 300 acres of land in Wilmot Township in 1837. After clearing five acres, he moved to Long Island, New York. His family joined him there while he managed a farm for one year. In 1839 they went to Haysville, Waterloo County in a covered wagon, arriving in 1840.

      He was one of the first importers of Devon cattle, Southdown sheep and Essex hogs. He was also the first exhibitor from Wilmot at the Provincial Exhibitions, securing prizes for his Devons at London, Cobourg, Brantford and Kingston.

      Tye was elected second vice-president of the Waterloo Agricultural Society when it was organized in 1852 and was a delegate to the annual meeting of the Upper Canada Agricultural Board at Cobourg in 1855.

      He was an active supporter of St. James Anglican Church, Huron Road, built in 1842, interested in public affairs and was a strong Conservative.1a
