Brampton was incorporated as a village in 1853, being named after the rural town of Brampton, Cumbria, England. A flower nursery was established in 1863 by Edward Dale, an immigrant from Dorking, England, and became the town’s largest employer. At the peak of its business, the company had the largest cut flower production in North America, and it encouraged the development of additional nurseries in town. It is from this history of the town’s development, that Brampton began marketing itself as the Flower Town of Canada.
