History

Parent County

Boundary Changes

  • In some census and election records from the late 1800s, the townships of Pelham and Wainfleet were enumerated as part of Monck County. However, Monck never existed as a county in the political sense, but only as an electoral district.
  • In 1970, Lincoln and Welland Counties were amalgamated to form the Regional Municipality of Niagara.
