Biographical sketches of prominent residents of Richmond Hill
David Boyle

David Boyle, born in Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1820, came to Canada in 1842, locating at York Mills where he had a smithy. In 1849 he purchased the 200 acres of lot 45, Yonge Street, Vaughan Township on which there was a saw mill which he operated in connection with the farm until 1881.

The mill pond on the Maple sideroad deteriorated into a reed bed, after having once been a beauty spot.

After moving to half the double house on the North east comer of Centre and Elizabeth Streets, he held the offices of Reeve, Deputy-Reeve, and school trustee of Vaughan Township.
