In 1784, the crown gave a large land grant on the Grand River to Captain Joseph Brant and the six nations Indians of New York for loyalty to the crown. In 1847, European settlers began to settle at a ford (a ford is a place in a stream or river that is shallow and may be crossed by wading, on horseback, or in a wheeled vehicle) in the river and named the town Brantford.
For the first half of the 20th century Brantford was an important industrial centre. However, by the 1980's and 1990's Brantford's economy was in serious trouble with the bankruptcies of a number of its core companies including: White Farm Equipment, Massey Ferguson, Koering Waterous, Harding Carpets and others. This left the city with one of the worst economic pictures in Canada. Currently the town is enjoying more prosperity due to the completion of a section of the 403 Highway from Brantford to Ancaster which brought some business to the city.
