September 19, 2012 meeting -- Learn about the Knight Family of Meaford

Everyone is invited to join the Grey County Historical Society on Wednesday, September 19 at 1:30 p.m. at the Meaford Hall - Terrace Room to learn about the Knight Family of Meaford. Please note that this is a change in venue.

In 1843, seven Knight brothers came to Canada, most settling in the Quaker community in Woodford, Sydenham Township, Ontario. Over the years since, they and their descendants have worked in the wood business, making furniture, carriages, wood flooring, windows and doors while developing a keen interest in the history of the Meaford area.

The result of this interest was the publication of a family genealogy and Pictorial Meaford, a history of the Town in picture form as well as an archival collection of documents.

Come and explore this historical and business journey from a family insider.

There will be an opportunity also to see the old Meaford Firehall, next door after the meeting.
