Town of Aurora

Aurora is an affluent town in York Region in the Greater Toronto Area, within the Golden Horseshoe of Southern Ontario. It is located north of the town of Richmond Hill and is partially situated on the Oak Ridges Moraine. In the Canada 2011 Census, the municipal population of Aurora was the 95th largest in Canada, compared to 97th for the 2006 Census. Many Aurora residents commute to Toronto and surrounding communities. the population of Aurora was 53,200 (2011), but the town, like many in York Region has been rapidly expanding with new subdivisions centred in the eastern part of Town around the Bayview and Leslie St areas, all within easy access to commutes down 404 Highway.

Yonge St. runs from Toronto up through the centre of Town and is the longest street in Canada. The town covers an area of approximately 49.78 km² (19.22 sq miles) with its southern boundary siding onto Bloomington, the western boundary along Bathurst St, , out to 404 hwy on the east and joining borders with the Town of Newmarket on the north just north of St John’s Sideroad.

Although Aurora has been growing rapidly, it still maintains its small town atmosphere, with Saturday farmers markets in the centre of town, summer concerts in the bandshell and an annual street festival which totally closes Yonge St.


A Brief History of the Town of Aurora

In 1797 an American came up through the mud of Yonge st. to hunt. He built the first home, a Cape cod Saltbox, which still stands at the Corner of Yonge and Catherine St. The first land was developed by Thos Philips with 2 lots coming from King and 2 from Whitchurch. between Mark and Maple St. The present Aurora Heights subdivision was also taken up in 1797 by Wm McClellan.

St Andrews College which moved to Aurora nearly a half century ago and sat just outside of the town boundary of that time.

When the Regional Municipality of York was founded in 1971, the boundaries were substantially increased to where they current sit today. The erliest grants were for farms, but industry came as well with at least 7 mills along the ever flowing creeks. About 1804 a hamlet began with the first merchant Richard Machell acquiring the corner at Yonge and Wellington.

In 1846 Charles Doan became the first postmaster, which he ran fronm his home at the corner of Yonge and Catherine, which actually stood in the wilderness, just to the south was Machell corners ( Yonge and Wellington) but population was so sparse it was hardly a community. Catherine St was named for Doans wife and has old homes from the 1870’s and 1880’s , but not substantially until the 1920’s.

Charles Doan had considerable influence and chose Aurora after the Grecian goddess of the dawn and Aurora became a town in 1854, welcoming its first steam train.

Almost every Aurora family can trace back to Quaker beginnings, with many of those original family names still prominent in Aurora. Justice Dalton Wells, chief Justice of the High Cout of Ontario traces back to the Quaker family of Irwins, who ran a gristmill in Aurora. David Wilson, ancestor of Lambert Wilson, built the Children of Peace and the Temple which still stands today. The names of Webb, Lount, Lundy, Baldwin, Mazo de la Roche, Hartman, Machell and Nisbet were prominent quaker families which reside in Aurora. The most outstanding of the quaker heritage was Joseph H, reeve of Whitchurch before Aurora was incorporated, reeve of York in the 1850’s, member of Parliament and reformer of clergy reserves.

The grey frame, Quaker Friends Meeting house has stood 3 miles north on Yonge st.since 1808/1810. It was the first house of worship built north of Toronto.

The settlements founder Timothy Rogers came from Vermont bringing the influence of the great families of England, bringing 27 families from Vermont and Connecticut There was a stability in the quaker settlers that gave strength and a measure of law and order to this frontier community The were plain pacifist people who believed in learning.The first school north of Toronto was built by the quakers next to their meeting house and as early as 1816 they had a circulating library and founded Aurora’s Mechanics institute for self betterment in 1856.

 Many other solid pioneer elements took root in Aurora such as the United Empire Loyalist families such as the Clubine’s which arrived in 1801.
