Around 1827 the Crown was thinking of uniting Upper and Lower Canada. Sir Charles Beasford founded the town site of Corunna, naming it after La Coruna in Spain. He had been sent on a mission to find a suitable place for a capital of the proposed United Canada.

Due to its close proximity to the American border, Corunna was rejected and Ottawa was chosen instead.
