Huron County, Ontario, comprises the central townships in Ontario lying along the east shore of Lake Huron. Its maritime climate makes it suitable for raising a variety of bush and tree fruits as well as mixed farming and stock-raising. The first Mennonites to migrate westward beyond Waterloo County, settling in Hay Township about 1840, were Amish; about 1850 the Mennonites also settled there and with help from itinerant ministers from Waterloo County assemblies were started in the townships of Hay, Stanley, and Grey. Daniel Brundage, who moved from York County, Ontario, about 1850, was the earliest resident minister. The first deacons were Daniel Lehman, Samuel Reesor, Henry Baer.
