Ascot Corner

Founded in 1901, the municipality of Ascot Corner drew its name from an English village, Ascot, renowned for its equestrian grounds. George Stacey – whose father, a government employee in London, sent his son to Lower Canada to avoid jail for bad gambling debts – was one of the town's first residents. As far as ‘Corner’ goes, it is explained through the village’s location – at the junction of Stoke, Westbury, Eaton and Ascot townships, as well as at intersecting roads leading to East Angus, Cookshire-Eaton and Sherbrooke. Facing a bridge that spans the St. Francis River are the ash-white church and its rectory, proudly perched on the promontory.
