  • Notes 
    • Archibald Scott was born in 1798 in Ecclefechan, Dumfrieshire, Scotland. He married Jane Ballantyne and emigrated to Canada with his wife and then six children and settle in Scott's Corners in Beverly Twp in 1831. The original Scott homestead was owned first by George Weaver and then Samuel Congo before being purchased by Archibald on his arrival from Scotland.

      Mr. Scott was a member of the Associate Church in Galt which was later known as the United Presbyterian before becoming First United Church. Mr. Scott died in 1865 on October 4th and was buried in Strang's burying ground in what is now know as High Park. His remains were later moved to Mount View Cemetary. His wife died about 1849.

      When Archibald Scott's son John was married in 1856 to Mary Rutherford he moved to the East River Road south of Galt and left John on the old farm at Scott's Corners.

      The farm south of Galt was at one time part of the land owned by John Telfer. Its deed shows that in 1847 it was purchased by David Potter. In 1858 that part of the land west of the Great West Railway was bought by Archibald Scott. After his death that land was bought in 1870 by Mr. Archibald Scott's son-in-law Andrew Taylor. It has since remained in the hands of the Taylor family.
