The first indication of any attempt to organize the settlers of Long Point District, or Norfolk County, came from the first person to hold the office of Justice of the Peace, Thomas Welch. Welch wrote out an Oath of Allegiance to King George the Third that all of the settlers had to sign. It also was a pledge to band together in the defense of their lands should any attempt at invasion be threatened.

Visit the Norfolk Militia for more information.
