L'Etablissement des Loyalistes dans la Baie d Quinte

English: This region was among the first in present day Ontario to receive loyalist settlers following the American Revolution. Surveying began in 1783, and by the following year five townships had been laid out between the Cataraqui River and the east end of the Isle of Quinte (Kingstown, Ernestown, Fredericksburgh, Adolphustown, and Marysburgh). Loyalist refugees and discharged soldiers arrived to take up land grants in these five Cataraqui townships in 1784. That same year, Iroquois loyalists settled lands granted to them on the north shore of this bay. These and other loyalist settlements west of the Ottawa River prompted the British government to establish the province of Upper Canada in 1791.
French:
Cette région est l'une des premières, dans ce qui est aujourd'hui l'Ontario, à accueillir des colons loyalistes après la Guerre de l'Indépendance américaine. L'arpentage commence en 1783 et, dès l'année suivante, cinq cantons sont délimites entre la rivière Cataraqui et l'extrémité est de l'Île de Quinte (Kingstown, Ernestown, Fredericksburg, Adolphustown et Marysburgh). Des loyalistes, réfugiés et soldats libérés, arrivent en 1784 pour occuper des concessions dans ces cantons. Cette année-là, des Iroquois loyalistes s'installent sur des terres qui leur ont été octroyées sur la rive nord de cette baie. La présence de ces établissement, et d'autres sis à l'ouest de la rivière des Outaouais, incite le gouvernement britannique à créer, en 1791, la province du Haut-Canada.
