A SHORT HISTORY LESSON ON “MUDDY YORK::
Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe changed Toronto’s name to York, on August 26, 1793, upon learning of a victory by the Duke of York in Flanders. One of the ensuing nicknames that came into practice at the time was “Muddy York”.
However, due to nicknames such as Muddy York, Little York and the confusion with New York, the name was changed back to Toronto in 1834.
So in honour of our historical past, we have named this blog – Muddy York.
