History[edit]

Lot 5 was awarded to Edward Lewis in the 1767 land lottery while Lewis was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Radnor. The township became jointly owned with John Hill in 1779 and subsequently went through various owners under feudalism when Prince Edward Island was a British colony prior to Canadian Confederation.
