Madoc

Trip Planner Canada  /  Ontario  /  Madoc
Madoc is a township in Eastern Ontario, Canada, in Hastings County.The township was named after legendary Welsh prince Madoc ap Owain Gwynedd, credited by some with discovering North America in 1170. There exists an alternative explanation, namely that the name comes from a small Welsh village, Llanmadoc on the Gower Peninsula of Wales, not far from the city of Swansea, which is in turn named for a place called Médoc in Bordeaux, France.CommunitiesThe township comprises the communities of Allen, Bannockburn, Cooper, Eldorado, Fox Corners, Hazzards Corners, Keller Bridge and Rimington.HistoryMills and ironworks gave initial stimulus to the community of Madoc. Following the discovery of gold-bearing quartz in 1866, the community prospered as an industrial centre. Eldorado was the site of Ontario's first gold rush in August 1866. People soon came from all over North America to this area.DemographicsMother tongue: English as first language: 92.0% French as first language: 1.0% English and French as first language: 0.5% Other as first language: 6.5% Population trend: Population in 2011: 2197 Population in 2006: 2069 Population in 2001: 2044 Population in 1996: 2031 Population in 1991: 1869
