Area Information
Major Edward Jessup (1735-1816) was awarded the 1200 acres on which Prescott is located by King George III for his loyalty to the Crown during the American War of Independence. The town is named after General Robert Prescott, governor of Canada from 1796 to 1799.
Because of a series of rapids between Prescott and Montreal all boats and ships between Montreal and York (later named Toronto) had to transfer goods and people at Prescott between smaller and larger vessels. Fort Wellington was built between 1813 and 1815 to accommodate British soldiers. In 1834 the town was incorporated as a Police District. Town of Prescott
