Location # 745

In the City of Oshawa, on Ritson Rd. just north of Winchester Rd., past the hydro lines is a quaint little village that is not marked by signs. In the 1800(a)s this was called "Chubtown". The hamlet was named after an English immigrant to The Township of East Whitby, R.V. Chubb (occupation: livery and bus). Back then the Town of Oshawa was located geographically in the Township of East Whitby too.

The hamlet had a tannery and sawmill, a post office, a butcher and about 7 homes and 5 farms (owned by R Harper, E. Cole, R. Power, W. Hill and T. Grass). Bone remains of animals were found recently in a field near where the local butcher once lived. An old barn foundation on the property where the sawmill once was has been turned into a garden. This barn housed sheep at one point.

spydrgyrl Clay's entry is on Chubtown. My entry is on the house and property. Therefore they should not be combined.
