Historical Society of St. Boniface & Maryhill Community

Mary­hill is a unique small vil­lage in South­ern Ontario, Cana­da. Many of the res­i­dents are descen­dants from a dozen Euro­pean fam­i­lies that set­tled here in the ear­ly 1800s from Alsace and Baden. In par­tic­u­lar large num­bers of immi­grants came from Souf­flen­heim north of Stras­bourg, Alsace between 1828 and 1860. It is not uncom­mon for 4 or 5 gen­er­a­tions of fam­i­ly to have lived on the same farm, pass­ing it down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion. The vil­lage is rich with cul­ture and her­itage. Our Soci­ety is ded­i­cat­ed to the preser­va­tion of the unique her­itage of the vil­lage of Mary­hill , Ontario, Cana­da and the St. Boni­face Catholic Church.

The Society’s archival col­lec­tions include local fam­i­ly his­to­ries, cen­sus returns for Water­loo Town­ship and for St. Boni­face Church, nat­u­ral­iza­tion records, Tweedsmuir his­to­ries, land records, church his­to­ries and ceme­tery tran­scripts.  We also have fam­i­ly his­to­ries donat­ed by descen­dants of our founders.
