John Graves Simcoe: I moved here in 1792, as Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada. I changed the name of this town to Newark, made it the capitol of Upper Canada, and held my first parliament here. I made political advances toward abolishing slavery during my time here. I moved away in 1798, deciding that this town was too close to the American border to serve as capitol, settling instead on Toronto.
