In 1847, William Fletcher from Yorkshire, England, and his eldest son John found a site for a mill at Lot 1, Concession 1, and named the location after his native town in Yorkshire, England, Alliston.  They erected the first building in late November of 1847. This is where the Nicolston Grist Mill currently stands. In 1900 the mill that they built, burned down, and was replaced by the current one in 1907.  In 1853, Fletcher hired a Mr. Grant, who eventually became the Father of the first child born in the town, Margaret Grant, born April 21, 1854.  Margaret grew up and married William Banting.  Together they had a son who became one of the most famous Canadian Doctors, Sir Frederick Banting.

Sir Frederick Grant Banting, (November 14, 1891 – February 21, 1941) was a Canadian medical scientist, doctor, painter and Nobel Laureate noted as the first person that used insulin on humans.  In 1923 Banting and John James Rickard Macleod received the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
