Notes

Under a Proclamation of 24 July 1788, Lord Dorchester divided southern Ontario into four districts. The Hesse District encompassed the area west of a line running due north from the tip of Long Point on Lake Erie. In 1792 under 32 Geo. III c.8, the name of the Hesse District was changed to the Western District. In 1798 38 Geo. III c.8, s.38-40 separated parts of the district and joined them to parts of the Home District to form the London District. The Western District now consisted of Kent and Essex Counties, as well as any territory not assigned to another district. In 1801 under 41 Geo. III c.6, Sandwich (later Windsor) was named the district town.

In 1847 10 & 11 Vic. c. 32 permitted the formation of the Kent District out of Kent County as soon as jail and court facilities were constructed at Chatham: because of the abolition of the district system which occurred in 1849, in point of fact, however, this district never existed as a separate entity. In 1849 under 12 Vic. c.78, the Western District was abolished, to be succeeded by the United Counties of Essex, Kent and Lambton.
