The suburban community of Richmond in the City of Ottawa's south-west, spans the Jock River which feeds into the Rideau River. You'll find it 10 km southwest of Kanata and south of Stittsville. It derives its name from the Duke of Richmond, a newly appointed Governor General of the Canadas. Richmond was selected in 1818 as one of the first military settlements by the British Army. Other settlements included Lanark and Perth. The rising importance of Bytown and the building of the Rideau Canal east of Richmond impacted its ability to thrive after the military relinquished control in 1822.
