The story of Absent Landlord
Founded in 1855 as Drummond, Blyth was renamed the same year after a wealthy landowner in Berkshire, England bought the majority of the town, sight unseen. Henry Blyth, Esq. never made the ocean voyage to visit his namesake in Canada. Absent Landlord is named after Henry.
We are grateful for the assistance of the Repository of Blyth History as a source of names and stories of colourful Blyth characters.Watch the video
