History / Biographical
The Charles E. Goad Company and, later, the Underwriters' Association, produced fire insurance plans for communities across Canada, including several within Elgin County. Charles E. Goad was born in England in 1848. He emigrated to Canada in 1869 and eventually began business as a cartographer in Montreal. Following his death in 1910, the company was reorganized and operated under the name Charles E. Goad Company. This firm was responsible for a major share of the insurance plans produced in Canada until 1917 at which time the Underwriters' Survey Limited became the primary producer of these plans. Underwriter's eventually bought out the assets of the Goad Company in 1931.
Custodial History
Transferred from the J.J. Talman Regional Collection, University of Western Ontario.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of fire insurance plans documenting contemporary building features for the purpose of assessing fire risk. Information includes the type of construction, number of storeys and proximity to other buildings. Each plan consists of a number of sections which, when assembled together, constitute a complete map of the town/village at that time, with street and building names clearly indicated. Buildings are also colour coded according to the type of fabrication, with colours corresponding to a key plan on the first section. Periodically, these plans were revised. Dates of revision are clearly marked. These plans provide a detailed overview of contemporary community development and are an invaluable source of information for dating buildings and for use in matters such as environmental site assessments. The Elgin County Archives possesses plans for the following communities: Belmont, April 1894, Goad, 1 copy-- 1 sheet (1 section). Fingal, Oct. 1896, Goad, 1 copy-- 1 sheet (1 section).
