Daniel McLachlin was born in 1809 at St. Andrew's East, Rigaud Township, and by 1837 had built a sawmill and gristmill at Chaudiere Falls, Bytown. McLachlin bought 400 acres of property in Arnprior during 1851 and thus began a successful enterprise in which McLachlin was foremost known for his involvement in the timber trade. McLachlin had a hand in many facets of the Arnprior community and is generally regarded as the person who contributed the most to Arnprior's growth in the nineteenth century.
Donated by Pat Hall (a descendant of Daniel McLachlin) in 1993.

HS stands for “Historical Society” documents which in 1987/88 were researched by Peter Hessel and his assistant, Kirstin Jeffrey, in the Arnprior Museum vault, as part of the research for the McNab book. For example, HS-005 was our code number which was pencilled on envelopes next to the museum’s own numbers. See the index card HS in “Shoe Box 1” (Peter Hessel’s notes at his office in Waba). It is assumed that most of the original documents copied here can be found in the “Arnprior Museum Fonds”.

History / Biography
The Township of McNab, Renfrew County, Ontario, was incorporated effective January 1, 1850 under the terms of the Baldwin Act, Chapter 81, Canada Statutes, 1849. This act provided for the creation of municipal governments at the town, village and township levels and identified those which would automatically be granted municipal status when the act came into effect, January 1, 1850. The township of McNab was surveyed and named McNab in 1824; the area covered approx. 64,000 acres. The first group of settlers arrived from Scotland to the township in 1825. Between 1840 and 1844, cultivated acreage in the township rose by 65%. Before the first McNab township hall was erected, the town council met in the house of Daniel McIntyre (an early Stewartville resident). Later, the council met in Stewartville’s township hall. Allan Stewart donated land for the township hall in 1850.
Under the provisions of Bill 26, the Savings and Restructuring act, 1996, McNab Township was amalgamated with Braeside village to form the new Township of McNab/Braeside effective January 1, 1998. The Village of Braeside was part of the Township of McNab until its incorporation in 1921.
The records were transferred from the basement storage room of the McNab Township office in 1993 and 1999. In 2008, Mrs. Nancy Argue donated 1877 Collector's Roll (Accession 2008-0234).
Scope and Content

I: McNab Township

III: Township of McNab/Braeside
