    During this period he also worked with the legendary future explorer James Cook on a monumental chart of the St. Lawrence River. Upon the conclusion of the Seven Years War, Britain's empire in North America was greatly expanded, and this required the creation of a master atlas featuring new and accurate sea charts for use by the Royal Navy. The Thousand Islands constitute an archipelago that straddles the Canada-U.S. border in the Saint Lawrence River as it emerges from the northeast corner of Lake Ontario. They stretch for about 50 miles (80 km) downstream from Kingston, Ontario. The Canadian islands are in the province of Ontario, the U.S. islands in the state of New York.

    The word Canada is likely derived from the St. Lawrence Iroquois word Kanata, meaning “village” or “settlement.” While the French explorer Jacques Cartier was traveling up the St. Lawrence River in , the indigenous peoples directed him to a specific village, the future Quebec City, using the word Kanata. Boyer states (on his place-names cards at C. C. H.S.) that about (only two years after the railroad opened) Westmont was known as Glenwood, after the railroad station, but in was changed by a town meeting vote to "Westmont" (the name of a popular race horse of the day).

The Geographic Board’s antipathy to accented letters and to names of more than one word 63 has converted Isle Ste. Thérése, in the St. Lawrence river, to Isle Ste.
