The Millard family is credited with founding Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. The Timothy Millard family, remembered in Millard Avenue, arrived in York County from Pennsylvania in 1805 with the millstones from their former business safely stowed in a Conestoga wagon. They settled near Stouffville, Ontario and seven years later moved to Newmarket, procuring 200 acres from Timothy Rogers. The farm extended through the heart of present day Newmarket from Yonge Street to the 2nd concession(Cotter Street, the Specialty Flats and Charles Street).

Timothy Millard was employed as a miller at Peter Robinson's grist mill and his son Mordecai built a grist mill on the orth side of Mill (Queen) Street, and all the flats from Mill Street to Timothy Street were for 25 years his mill pond. According to tradition, settlers from the Scotch Settlement west of Bradford bypassed Robinson's Red Mill at Holland Landing and brought their grist to the Millard Mill. These former Selkirk settlers harboured no love for the elite which was to be called the Family Compact.

Seeking connection of my gggGrandmother Mary Ann to Newmarket's founding father Timothy Millard.

The only information I have comes from the book "English Immigrant Voices, Labourers' Letters from Upper Canada in the 1830s", page 338: Joseph Chantler b 15 Feb 1822 Broadmoor, Wotton, Surrey, d 30 Jun 1868 Whitchurch Township, Upper Canada; married 28 Sept 1846 Ogdensburg, New York, Mary Ann Millard, daughter of Eleazar and Betsy Millard, b 24 Sept 1825, d 22 Jan 1913 Toronto.

I cannot locate her birth, marriage or death records for parents' names. Census records for 1861 list children. Other researchers' family trees on ancestry.com confirm, but no one has further info. I have a huge amount of information about the Chantlers, but nothing else about Mary Ann Millard. She is likely a niece, but I haven't confirmed Timothy's family yet.

Thanks to anyone with further information to share, or researching suggestions.
