Richmond Community Overview

Settled by United Loyalists after the War of 1812 and founded in 1818, Richmond spans the Jock River, a tributary of the Rideau River. A military post for some years, the village derives its name from the Duke of Richmond, then Governor General of Canada, who is reputed to have died here in 1819 from the bite of a pet fox in a frame barn on Chapman’s farm, about 2 miles from the village, on the Goodwood River (now, the Jock River). Richmond was incorporated as a village on the Goodwood River in the east corner of the township of Goulbourne, 21 miles from Ottawa City and 11 miles from the Ottawa river in 1850. For a number of years trade and business was very active, but by 1860s appears to have declined. It was annexed by Goulbourn Township in 1974. In 1969, Richmond became part of Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton. In 2001 Richmond was recognized as one of the rural villages within the amalgamated City of Ottawa.
