Under the Baldwin Municipal Act of 1849, the United Counties of Lanark and Renfrew (known from 1841 to 1849 as the District of Bathurst) were first established and given self-government. In 1861, a separation was resolved upon and a Provisional Council was established for the erection of county buildings. On October 10, 1866, the County of Renfrew became an independent corporation. The County Council was then composed of 22 reeves, representing the 22 local municipalities. By 1896, the County Council had increased to 26 reeves and 7 deputy-reeves.
