Fonctions : George Ireland (1885-1972) was the 10th child of 12 born to John and Eliza Ireland. After his father's death in 1904, George bought Oakridge farm from his siblings who were still living at home. He was a farmer, businessman and a member of the Holstein Breeders' Association.

In 1917, George took over the farm. That same year he married Lucy Davis Springer, the youngest of 14 children born to David Springer and Elizabeth Ghent, who lived nearby on Dundas Street. George and Lucy had one child, Lucie Marie, born in 1923.

During the 1960s, George retired from farming. Before his death, portions of the farm had gradually been sold. M.M. Robinson High School and the Halton Board of Education are approximate locations of where the farm fields were. The remaining acreage was sold for housing developments. George kept the house and about four acres of the remaining land. George passed away in 1972, leaving the farmhouse and property to his only child, Marie.
