Registered to Town of Oakville. Bronte Cemetery is a Lakeshore property, and is one of the oldest cemeteries in Trafalgar Township. The site was established in 1823 with the first burial of Hannah S. Haviland, four weeks of age, who died on October 28, 1823. The site was deeded by Philip Sovereign (1778-1833?) to trustees of the cemetery in 1830. He was of Palatine German descent, and arrived in Bronte in 1814 from Sussex County, New York. The following names of early settlers appear in Bronte Cemetery: Adams, Belyea, Butler, Dorland, Lucas, MacDonald, McWane, Observe, Ribble, Sovereign, Triller, and Williams.
