Fonctions : James Beveridge Harris purchased Benares house and the surrounding land in 1836 from Edgar Neaves; the property was a total of 284.50 acres and was located on Lots 27 and 28, Concession II, South of Dundas Street. The property went as far north as the QEW, as far south as railway tracks, east towards Lorne Park Road and west towards Clarkson Road. After Captain Harris passed away in 1884 ownership of house and property was given to his son Arthur Beveridge Harris. Arthur gave the southern 38 hectares of the arm to his daughter Annie in 1911 as a wedding present. He later sold 5.50 acres of land to the Hydro Electric Power Commission in Ontario back in 1913 for use of a power line. Parcels of Benares property have been sold in the later years and all that remains is 2.3 hectares or less than one percent of the original property.
