Lawrence Avenue was named after the Yorkshire family that settled in the area in 1829. Peter Lawrence bought the farmland, and later became Justice of the Peace for the village of Eglinton. Jacob Lawrence ran a tannery on the southwest corner of Yonge and Lawrence. George Lawrence ran a general store on Yonge Street north of Lawrence Avenue.
