The fonds contains source material on the settlement of the Hyatt family, and more specifically Gilbert Hyatt, in the Township of Ascot between 1789 and 1832. It is also of value as a source of information on the genealogy of the Canfield and the Hyatt families. The fonds consists mainly of original 19th-century documents, but also includes reference materials gathered by donor Glenn C. Taylor in the 1980s and the 1990s. It is comprised of the following series: Notarial and Judicial Documents (1796-1832), Parliamentary Documents (1789-1800), Correspondence ([182-]-1830), Transcriptions (1991), Biographical and Genealogical Documents ([198-]-1991), Press Clippings ([190-]-1953), Photographs ([187-?]-[1991?]), and Miscellaneous Documents (1797-1828).
