Hi, all my family descendants are from Wotton, Qc, CAN.
I have a chalet at 15mins from Wotton. So I know a little about it, if it can help you.
Wotton is a small village in the Wolfe County. It's near Asbestos formerly called Shipton (from Shipton Township) during the end of 1800s.
This village was one of many village founded when the canadian government wanted to relocate in quebec, all US people that was loyal to the britannic crown (the loyalist). The goal was to assimilate french speaking people. Today we are over 86% french in QuÃ©bec!!! The governement gave lands freely to people that was able to open roads, cross rivers and establish families in new place. It was around 1845. They divided all the south-east of the QuÃ©bec in township. It's why it is called Eastern Township. They gave the name of each township from somes who were used in England. Wolfe Co. is one of it and "Wotton" name is from a village in England. Theses names have no characteristics with something in QuÃ©bec province...
Patrick Bready was the first to establish permanently at Wotton in 1849. People asked to the Trois-RiviÃ¨res's bishop to form the St-Hippolyte parish in 1852.
Wotton is located on secondary road 255 nearby the "loyalist road" formed by the Craig ( and Gosford ) road. This road cross all the Eastern Township territory from LÃ©vis ( near QuÃ©bec City ) to Sherbrooke. Today, it's the secondary road 216 and you have a beautifull panoramic view when you're on it.
Search for loyalist, Eastern Township, Orange Lodge, Asbestos, Danville, Richmond, Sherbrooke, Wolfe, Shipton (QuÃ©bec CAN).
Search a lot in french language because it's what we use to talk here.
I did a little search in french ( wotton qc ) and found a lot for Wotton.
