History

George Davidson was born May 14, 1814 in Aberdeen, Scotland and came to Canada on his own in 1835 with the Bon Accord settlers who had purchased land near Fergus, Ontario. George developed the village of New Aberdeen but left the businesses he had started there and moved to Berlin (now Kitchener), Ontario. He was the first postmaster of Berlin and in 1853 was appointed first sheriff of Waterloo County. He married Margaret Garden (1811-1894), also from Aberdeen, on June 27, 1836 in Hamilton, Ontario. Together they had six living children, four sons and two daughters. Their daughter Margaret (1839-1900) married Irvine Kempt of Glasgow, Scotland, and her younger sister Elizabeth (1843-1928) married William Roos and stayed in Berlin. George Davidson died April 27, 1881.
