Administrative history

Sylvan’s Mills Loyal Orange Lodge #826 was founded on March 12, 1857. Meetings were held in the community of Sylvan, Ontario. Discussions of annexing the other West Williams Township Lodge (West Williams / Arkona Loyal Orange Lodge #763) were under way in February, 1865; it is not known whether these two lodges ever merged. Sylvan’s Mills Loyal Orange Lodge was declared dormant before 1895 and the warrant was moved to Schreiber, Ontario – a community approximately 2 ½ hours east of Thunder Bay. West Williams / Arkona Loyal Orange Lodge #763 was founded on September 10, 1856. Meetings were held in Groves Mills, now Hungry Hollow, Ontario. West Williams / Arkona Loyal Orange Lodge was declared dormant before 1895 and the warrant was moved to Oakdale (near Oil Springs) in Lambton West. Westwood Loyal Orange Lodge #1097 was founded on February 19, 1861. Renamed Parkhill Loyal Orange Lodge after Westwood changed its name to Parkhill in 1863, the lodge was transferred from the Middlesex administrative area to Huron South. The Liberal Conservative Association of North Middlesex was a regional group designed to promote the views of the Liberal-Conservative Party, the forerunner of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario. By the early 1870s, the Liberal-Conservatives and the Orangemen shared similar views on separate school funding, bilingualism, and immigration. Many Orangemen supported the Liberal Conservative Association, or had leadership roles within the organization.
