Queen's Bush


No Longer Exists

LOCATION:

This was the Huron Tract and is still in existence and is a name still used. It is present day Huron, Perth and Bruce Counties. In 1836 at the Treaty of Manitowaning, a huge tract of land, 1,500,000 acres, was surrendered by the Ojibway (Chippawas) due to the mounting pressure for land by the European and Canadian settlers. This land would be known as the Huron District, or the Queen's Bush. The remaining part of Bruce County, above the line drawn from the mouth of the Saugeen River to the mouth of the Sydenham River, was called the Indian Penninsula and was held by the Ojibways. The Queen's Bush was eventually divided into the three counties of Huron, Perth and Bruce in 1849. Further land treaties followed and eventually the remaining parts of the penninsula were incorporated into Bruce County
