Description
In 1945, Joseph and Yvonne Piggott of the Hamilton Piggott Construction family, bought two farms, which included 3269 and 3271 Dundas Street, in the old Trafalgar Township, now Oakville, Ontario. Mrs. Piggott used the working farm as a summer home, visiting every Sunday and entertaining friends and business acquaintances. The "Pat" in the farm name is that of their youngest son.

This farm sign now stands near the house up the lane but for many years it was out on "the Dundas Highway" at the end of the drive.

Notes
3269 Dundas Street West is part of Lots 33 and 34, Concession 1. It runs north from Dundas and is across from the northeast corner of Bronte Creek Provincial Park.

Prior owners of this property were Jane Barr and Hugh McLean who married in Scotland. Hugh sold the family estate in Lockerbie, St. Mungo's Parish, and they left in September 1920 to settle in the 1 1/2 storey house and farm at 3269 Dundas Street West, Palermo, Trafalgar Township. They had a dairy farm with lambs, swine and poultry. There was also a small apiary on the property. Hugh died in 1930 and the farm was sold in 1933. A link to the record of these owners is included here: click on "Jane (Jeannie) Barr". This record also has a 2014 photograph of their house.

The 1858 and 1877 Tremaine's show the owner of Lot 33 (3271 Dundas West) as Francis Wilkinson.
