Maud’s School

(School Section No. 18)

 

We have very little information on this school. If anyone has any information or photos we would appreciate hearing from you.

 

School Superintendents Report (Ontario Archives)

Shows the following information, which in some cases contradicts what we have already researched, and contradicts other filed School Superintendents Reports:

1850: Stone Building, size 28×38, construction date 1830, condition: Good

1854: Log building, first opened in 1819

 

The following information was extracted from the motion papers of the Elizabethtown Council 1855-1873:

 

That Edward Davis be detached from school section no 18 and be attached to school section no 20-1858
