The first recorded settler in Malton was Samuel Moore, who arrived in 1823. Among other early settlers was Richard Alliday, a native of Malton in Yorkshire, England, who had arrived in this area in 1819. By the late 1830s, Halliday had gained sufficient influence, being the only blacksmith in town, to have his new home named after his birthplace. The community of Malton developed around the "four corners" of Derry and Airport Roads, and by 1850 the village had a general store, a cobbler shop, aa small hotel and a blacksmith. The arrival of the Grand Trunk Railway in 1854 provided local farmers with easier access to market, and the railway helped to turn Malton into a major grain handling and export centre. Malton was awarded the county seat in 1859, which it held for a year, and was incorporated as a police village in 1914. IN 1937 Malton was chosen as the site for a new airport - now known as Pearson International Airport.
