Many pioneers came from the Perthshire region of Scotland to North Easthope in the early 1800s. There is a 1832 Memorial to the Pioneers of North Easthope located on highway 8 miles north of Shakespeare. Many of their descendants took up residence in Stratford and there names would be recognized today. There are over 200 names listed on the plaque.
Here is a story of one of them: Peter Crerar
