Notes

Long before the Loyalist settlers arrived, the falls at Napanee were known as the ‘Appannea’. The origin is uncertain, but early 19th century accounts attribute it to the Mississaugas. With the arrival of Loyalist settlers, a saw and grist mill was erected, giving rise to the tradition that it meant a place to grind wheat.
