Ford Milton is a neighborhood being developed in south Milton in the Boyne Survey, which will add 6,000 new homes and approximately 25,000 new residents. Construction of this survey began in 2015. Ford is bounded by Bronte St S – Britannia Rd – Regional Road 25 – Louis St Laurent Ave.
The Ford Milton neighbourhood was created by the Town of Milton in 2004 as part of the Boyne Survey which also included the Bowes, Cobban and Walker neighbourhoods. The Ford family after whom this neighbourhood is named, emigrated to Milton in the 1830s. They were a large extended family of brothers and cousins who were prolific farmers and were also involved in the municipal politics of what was then Trafalgar Township.
The farm residence of Arthur Ford is featured in the Historical Atlas of Halton County published in 1877. This sketch gives the impression that pioneer life was prosperous and the family became quite wealthy. The house in the sketch is a grand Regency-style home with appendages and outbuildings which were likely stables for the horses frolicking in the fields. There is a grand front porch that runs the length of the house and overlooks a bridle path entranceway that is surrounded by a beautiful and immaculate landscaped garden. Neatly arranged farming plots surround the estate.
Ford is one of Milton’s newest neighborhoods. It is situated south of Louis St. Laurent Avenue, North of Britannia Road between Bronte Street on the west and Regional Road 25 on the east. Many of the houses were built by Mattamy Homes with their distinctive wide lots and pretty architecture. This neighborhood was built for families with large houses, sidewalks, greenspace, trails and bicycle lanes. Traffic calming roundabouts are also in place to encourage slower driving within the neighborhood.
Ford Milton neighborhood sit on wide lots and face the street with prominent windows, front facing gables, and recessed built-in garages. Many houses have front porches and nicely landscaped gardens.

“Our Patron Saint: St. Scholastica, twin sister of St. Benedict, consecrated her life to God from her earliest youth. After her brother went to Monte Cassino, where he established his famous monastery, she took up her home in the neighborhood at Plombariola, where she founded and governed a monastery of nuns, about five miles from that of St. Benedict. She visited her brother once a year, and as she was not allowed to enter his monastery, he went in company with some of his brethren to meet her at a house some distance away. These visits were spent conferring together on spiritual matters. On one occasion they had passed the time as usual in prayer and pious conversation and in the evening they sat down to take their reflection. St. Scholastica begged her brother to stay with her until the next day. St. Benedict refused to spend the night away from his monastery. She decided to turn to God in prayer and a furious storm erupted so that neither St. Benedict nor any of his companions could return home. They spent the night in spiritual conversation. The next morning they parted. Three days later St. Scholastica died, and her holy brother beheld her soul in a vision as it ascended into heaven in the form of a dove. He sent his brethren to bring her body to his monastery and laid it in the tomb he had prepared for himself. She died around the year 543, and St. Benedict followed her soon after. Her feast day is February 10th.
