History

before 1788
See the descriptions and links on the Ontario GenWeb site.


1788 - 1792
The area we now call Frontenac County was part of a large portion of eastern Ontario known as Mecklenburg District. Sometimes it is spelled Mecklenburgh.


1792 - 1849
The name of the area was Midland District. See the exhibit called The Changing Shape of Ontario on the Archives of Ontario website.


1849 - 1998
Frontenac County was comprised of eighteen townships. Most genealogy resources are organized under the names of these townships:

  • Barrie Township
  • Bedford Township
  • Clarendon Township
  • Hinchinbrooke Township
  • Howe Island
  • Kennebec Township
  • Kingston Township
  • Loughborough Township
  • Miller Township
  • North Canonto Township
  • Olden Township
  • Oso Township

If you know the name of the town or village, but not the township, use the Ontario Locator.

In 1998, Frontenac County was reorganized into four municipal townships:
