Area Information
Roches Point is on the eastern shore of Lake Simcoe and was named after James O'Dell Roch. After the War of 1812, York (Toronto) was considered vulnerable to further attack. New lands were sought by the Government. Because Roches Point, then called Keswick, "was deemed to be a safe haven" it was proposed as the capital designate for Upper Canada. Georgina dates to the late 1790s, when Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe named the eastern portion of the modern-town Georgina in honor of King George III, and the eastern portion North Gwillimbury, for his wife’s maiden name, Gwillim. It wasn’t until 1986 that the Townships of North Gwillimbury and Georgina amalgamated as the Town of Georgina.
