One might think that Martin Street Public School (Milton’s first school built in 1920), formerly Martin Street Middle School, formerly Milton High School, was so named because it was located on Martin Street. This was not entirely so, as you will see below. Martin Street Public School is named after an early settler to the region, Mr. Jasper Martin.
This town of Milton took root out of a settlement started by Jasper Martin in the early 1800s. Mr. Martin, immigrated from Newcastle, England, with his wife Sarah and two sons on May 17, 1818. He was granted 100 acres (405,000 m.) of land from the Crown in 1820, designated Lot 14, Concession 2, Township of Trafalgar, Halton County, in the District of Gore. During this time, there were two principal property owners in the young town – the Martins and the Fosters. Each of these founding families has provided names for several local landmarks that mark our heritage. Both have schools named after them!
