1912 - A Century and A Quarter of Geneva History 

by Joel H. Monroe

[In Progress]

 

Ontario County, NY

Historical Collections of the State of New York, Past and Present, John Barber, Clark Albien & Co, 1851

 

                        Ontario County was taken from Montgomery in 1789, and included all the land of which the 

                        pre-emptive right had been ceded to the state of Massachusetts, which that state afterward 

                        sold to Phelps and Gorham, and which afterward chiefly passed into the possession of the Holland

                        Land Company and the Pulteney estate. Ontario county then extended from the pre-emption line 

                        a mile eastward of Geneva, so as to include within its limits all the territory within the hounds of
                        this state west of that line. This was commonly known as the “Genesee country,” although the title

                        was occasionally more extensively applied, and from it have been formed the counties of 

                        Steuben, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chatauque, Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Wyoming, Orleans,       

                        Monroe, Livingston, Yates, Wayne, in part, leaving to a tract around the former chief town

                        (Canandaigua,) the name of Ontario. 

                        In 1790, this extensive territory had only 1,075 inhabitants. The surface is agreeably diversified, 

                        waving in gentle swells and valleys of ample area, with tracts of campaign, and in the southern 

                        part more or less hilly. The soil partakes of a considerable variety, but a warm and rich mould 

                        forms the greater proportion, while along the borders of Lake Ontario there are tracts of clayey

                        loam, with but a slight admixture of mould. The principal streams are Flint creek, Canandaigua 

                        outlet, and Mud creek. The lakes are Canandaigua, Honeoye, Caneadea, and Hemlock. 

                        Canandaigua lake is 14 miles long, and from one to two broad, and is elevated 670 feet above 

                        the ocean. It is navigable throughout. Its inlet is a small stream of some 5 or 6 miles long. The 

                        Honeoye, 12 miles west, extends about 5 miles, and is about a mile in breadth. The Caneadea, 

                        2 miles W. of the Honeoye, is but 3 miles long: the Hemlock is 6 miles long, varying from 

                        1 to 2 in breadth. The county has 15 towns.
