George McGillivary, a noted Scottish gentleman, purchased a stone house in Audley in 1840 and called it "Burnside Farm". The fieldstone house still stands at 786 Taunton Road E. Twelve of their children were born in Audley. In 1870, the McGillivary's moved to Whitby after purchasing a large estate called "Inverlynn". The most noted of the children was Florence Helena McGillivary (1864-1938), a famous Canadian painter. Some of her works hang in the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa.
