The farm was the home of the Hetherington family from the time when land was cleared by Joseph Hetherington in 1823 until his great grandson George Hetherington left the farm in 1970.
It is said that Joseph came from Carlisle, Cumberland in England, and that when he was seventeen years old, during the war of 1812, he was captured by the Americans. Sent with another lad to fetch water for the camp, they found a boat on the river bank, and escaped to Quebec, Canada. The Lower Canada Land Grants show that Joseph was given a 200 acre grant, Lot 19 Range 6 of the Township of Hull in 1827. This was the result of a petition for land made by Philemon Wright on behalf of some fifty settlers. The petition stated that Joseph came to Canada in 1816 from the United States. Curiously, it give his name as Harrington instead of Hetherington.
Joseph Hetherington married Charlotte Clements and their first child Joseph was born about 1821. In all they had six sons and one daughter.
