History of Thistletown

 The area of Thistletown, in the northwest end of Toronto, Ontario, was founded by John Grubb.

In 1831, he came to the area from Edinburgh, Scotland. Grubb’s family originated in St. Andrew’s, Scotland. In 1847, he acquired the south-west, north-west and north-east corners of the current Albion Road and Islington Avenue.

In October 1847 Grubb had John Stroughton Dennis survey the land for the establishment of a village to be called St. Andrew’s. After the plan was registered, Grubb began dividing the land into village lots and subsequently in a formal way founded the village now known as Thistletown.

For more information on the history of Thistletown, refer to Evelyn Boasie’s book, Thistletown Now and Then.
