Markham Village (2006 population 6,090)[1][2] (Census Tract No. 5350400.03 and 5350400.12) is a community in the city of Markham. Originally settled in 1825 the village, originally named Reesorville was a founded by Mennonites from Upstate New York and Pennsylvania (see Peter Reesor). Eventually, as Upper Canada started to experience immigration from the British Isles Markham would also experience such growth from Britain. In 1850 the police village is created, but it does not include the villages of Unionville and Thornhill (joins in 1971 when the Town of Markham is created). The village becomes a police village in 1931.
