In 1829 approximately 200 slaves from Cincinnati who were under the threat of being enslaved again were granted refuge and land by the Canada Company. They moved to the area and named it Wilberforce.  This was one of the earliest, if not the earliest slave refuge colony in Upper Canada and existed before emanicpation.

Until its incorporation in 1872, the village of Lucan had been known as Marystown, named in tribute to the wife of John McDonald, who was the original land surveyor of the area. When a duplicate Marystown was found to have already registered with the Post Office, the name Lucan was put forth and accepted by the postal authorities. Lucan was named in tribute to Lord Lucan, a prominent landowner in Ireland.[1]
