History

Rymal Road is named after William Rymal, (1759-1852), farmer and one of earliest settlers on the Hamilton mountain. [1]

In the early days of the last century the townships of Ancaster and Barton (on the mountain) were selected by American settlers, originating for the most part from the state of Pennsylvania. Among these were the Rymals. William Rymal was also one of the first four trustees of Barton Stone Church, which Stone Church Road is named after. The church was first under the jurisdiction of the American Presbyterian church, but this authority ceased to exist around 1838 and then was confined under the Canadian church authority, which was established in 1844.
