History / Biographical
The Backus family was one of several families that had obtained land from Colonel Thomas Talbot and settled in the area which quickly came to be known as Little Ireland (a namesake due to the Irish ancestry of the settlers).
The Backus-Page House Museum is located within the grounds of the John E. Pearce Provincial Park, situated within a restored Georgian style house which was constructed in 1850. It is one of the first brick homes built in what would eventually become Dunwich Township. The house was commissioned by Andrew and Mary Jane Backus. The property that Andrew built his house on was given to him by his grandmother, Mary Storey, who received her original land grant in 1809.
Scope and Content
Records created, collected and/or maintained by the Backus family of Dunwich Township. The fonds is comprised of the following series:
-Land records series, 1825-1906.
-Historical records series, 1877-1909.
