Wilbur Lake is in Georgetown, Ontario, Canada. When George Kennedy arrived in Georgetown in 1823, a small water supply along the Silver Creek that he had hoped to build a saw mill on, but then the Barber Brothers came and purchased some land from Kennedy to build the mill. Further along the Silver Creek was the pond that provided water power for operating the Barbers Brothers mills as early as 1837. This pond was known as Wilber Lake. Wilber Lake's name was derived from Williams (Glen Williams) and Barber (the enterprising Irish brothers). This Lake was right by the St. George's Anglican Church[disambiguation needed], and many afternoons the villagers would go canoeing. There were periods when the pond dried up. People would then call it 'Lake Sometime' because sometimes it was there and sometimes it wasn't!(Wikipedia)
