- 3 aerial photographs of the southeast half of Lot 6 1st Concession New Survey Trafalgar Township (100 acres), also known as 1510 Bronte Street South, Milton (at Milton's First Line and Britannia Rds). The first photograph is hand tinted, the third is the original black and white photo of the same shot. The second photograph is a slightly different view.
These photographs were taken when the farm was the dairy operation of the family of Denzil and Marion Lawrence, from 1944 to 1967. The Lawrences owned the house and about 7 acres after that until about 1996.
Nelson Daniel Lawrence and Mary Margaret Maude Lawrence bought the 100 acre farm in 1941 from Barbara Jane Stuart. In 1944, the property "Lawrendale" was given to their son, Denzil Featherstone Lawrence at his marriage to Marion Miller. So many of the family farmed along Highway 25 south of Milton (now Bronte Road) the area was informally known as "The Lawrence Road".
Children of Marion Emily (Miller) and Denzil Featherstone Lawrence are Marion Elizabeth Jean Gannon (called Betty), b.1945 d.2015 ; Bryon Denzil b.1947 ; Nelson Daniel II, b.1951 d.2009 ; Cheryl Fern (called Fern) (Lawrence) Bruce, b.1952.
- The original land patent was granted to Robert Loring in July 1825. Andrew Suiter bought the south half of Lot 6, Concession 1 NS from Henry Freeland in May 1829. Suiter married Hannah Green and they farmed the east half of Lot 6, Concession 1 N. Andrew died on August 19, 1863.
The estate of Robert Suiter sold the farm to English immigrant Arthur George Heaven in 1883. The house was/is 10-rooms, 1 1/2 storey, stone.
