Esquesing Township (area 66,700 acres (104 sq mi; 270 km2)). Opened in 1819, the first town meeting was held in 1821 when the population was 424.
The township of Esquesing was surveyed in 1818 and opened to settlement the following year. Its name was said to come from a First Nations word meaning “the land of the tall pine(s)”, but is more likely to come from the Mississauga word ishkwessin, meaning “that which lies at the end”, which was the original name for Bronte Creek. The grid pattern of lines and sideroads that define the landscape of the township to this day, is often interrupted by the rugged cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment, the deep Credit River valley or the headwaters of Sixteen Mile Creek. It was this natural beauty that drew the Hurons first and then the Mississaugas to hunt, fish, and live in this area.
The Township was organized into a municipality, and its council held its meetings at Stewarttown. The principal road to Lake Ontario was Trafalgar Road so the development of several settlements began along this route first. A more direct route to York was established by the York to Guelph Road, now Highway 7. In that era, these hamlets provided the essential services for pioneers and travelers. It was the arrival of the Railway in 1856 that changed the landscape and provided the stimulus for the urban development of Georgetown and Acton.
Esquesing is a rural area in north Milton that has some farm homes, and some estate homes on large rural properties.
Nelson has 6 Public schools, and 5 Catholic schools, in this neighborhood, your kids can get a great education.
