Dunham, a village in Missisquoi county, Quebec, on the Canadian Pacific Railway, 30 miles south-west of Waterloo. With the township in which it is situated, which was created in 1796, it is named in honour of the Hon. Thomas Dunn, administrator of Canada (1805-11). It is essentially the centre of an agricultural community.
