The naming of Lake Township



Did you ever wonder how Lake Township got its name? It wasn't for all the lakes therein. It was named in honour of this gentleman -
General Gerard Lake, 1st Viscount Lake (27 July 1744 – 20 February 1808) was a British general. He commanded British forces during the Irish Rebellion of 1798 and later served as Commander-in-Chief of the military in British India.
