    Researched using the OLRI (Ontario Land Records Index) Overview

    The OLRI indexes, by surname, were at my local library on microfiche. See all VV / Vollick / Follick spellings here (six pages).

    Specifically look at the page VOINSON - VOLLAND

    These three separate listings have the following Archival Reference number: 01 CI3 084 114, and these were used to find this record at the Ontario Archives on microfilm.

    The old C-series numbering has changed and been developed into specific sub-series. This record is among RG 1-149 Registers for Fiats United Empire Loyalists, Volumes 83-85: Warrants United Empire Loyalists: Grants To Loyalists and Their Children After 1818.

    Map (detail) 1863 W. Jones / Tremaine 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 1879 Page Atlas.

    Modern roads are indicated. 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".
