Thomas Mercer Jones 1795-1868

Business experience gained in the mercantile trade in England stood Jones in good stead as commissioner of the powerful Canada Company (1829-52). He was responsible for administering settlement of the million-acre Huron Tract and, from his headquarters in Goderich, wielded unrivalled authority in the area.
