    Map (detail) 1879 H.R. Page Atlas of Canborough Twp., Haldimand Co.
    Shows the following Vollick/Follick properties located south of the village of Canboro in Canborough Twp.

    Compare this to the 1863 Page Atlas.

    These properties are owned by sons and grandsons of Sturm Vollick, an original Canby settler. The History of the Canby Settlement says that Sturm and his sons settled along the Darling Road about 1810. It is uncertain whether the original settlement extended as far south as on this atlas into the Clement Tract. If so, the George Follick property may be the land taken by his father Sturm. When the rail lines were built along the gore, the place where they converged and crossed Darling Rd. was known as a siding town called "Darling Road".

    See this section in relation to other Haldimand Co. Vollick/Follick properties.
