Manvers Township, Ontario

Manvers Township, Ontario

The Township of Manvers [area convert|69923|acre|km2|0] is a historical township that was officially established in 1816 and named in honour of Charles Pierrepont, 1st Earl Manvers.

From 1792 to 1974 Manvers Township was located in Durham County, which was united with Northumberland County in 1800 for administrative purposes.

In 1974, an extensive re-organization of municipal administrative divisions took place. Durham County was separated from Northumberland County, re-named the Regional Municipality of Durham and incorporated most of the former Ontario County; in the process, Manvers Township was transferred to the County of Victoria.

Effective 01 January 2001, Victoria County was eliminated and its municipalities were amalgamated; this new administrative municipal division was named the City of Kawartha Lakes.
