Prince Edward County (2011 census population 25,258) is a single-tier municipality and a census division of the Canadian province of Ontario.
Long settled by indigenous peoples, the county has significant archeological sites. These include the LeVescounte Mounds of the Point Peninsula Complex people, built about 2000 years ago.
The settlement for European-Canadians was facilitated when the county was created by Upper Canada’s founding lieutenant-governor John Graves Simcoe on July 16, 1792. It was named after Prince Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent (the fourth son of King George III) who was commander-in-chief of British North America.
