Excerpt from Parish of St. Mary: Almonte, Ontario

The parish of St. Mary's, of Almonte, now comprises the town Of Almonte and the townships of Ramsay, Darling and Lavant, in the County Of Lanark (ont.) As a parish it is still in its infancy but as a mission its history may be traced back for more than half a century. The township of Ram say was first settled about 1819-20. The majority of the settlers about this date came from Paisley and Glasgow. There were, however, a few Catholic families about the year 182 1-2 2. In 1823 a large number of families (about 500 souls), chie?y from the south of Ireland, found their way into Ramsay and adjoining townships, and took up lands. They were brave and hardy pioneers, and required extraordinary courage to overcome the difficulties that fell to their lot. They bore their share of hardships and trials. The trees Of the forest were felled, rude buildings put up, and the fields were tilled and produced a return for their toil.
