It is believed the Algonquin tread the soil of Barnston Township between 1300 and 1680. The Abenaki followed suit, then the Loyalists and Irish, and the Francophone wave began with the expansion of the railway around 1850. Today, residents live in the hamlets of Way’s Mills and Kingscroft, which have been part of Barnston West since 1946. An American manufacturer of tweed and flannel, L. S. Way, arrived around 1808, leaving his name to the village nestled in a bend of the Niger River, which is also crossed by Holmes Road.
