The first dinner of the St. George's Society was held on April 23, 1847 at Balkwill's Hotel on the southwest corner of Dundas and Talbot streets (now the site of the Budweiser Gardens). 

On March 24, 1827, the first known commercial advertisement from London appears in the Gore Gazette of Ancaster.  George Jervis Goodhue (1799-1870), stated he would have 250 young sheep by August 1 which he would barter with cashless settlers for "Salts of Lye" at the rate of "three dollars per hundred."  Goodhue eventually became one of the richest men in London.  When he died, his estate was worth $650,000.
