The history of Weston-Pellam Park starts with Carleton Village which was named after Guy Carleton. He served as the first Govenor of Canada in 1768. The spelling of Carleton Village, with or without an "e," has been debatable since the areas start in the 1850's. Even today, the historical street signs in the Village spell Carleton without an “e,” and at the same time, the local public school spells Carleton with an "e."
By the 1860s, in spite of its spelling controversy, Carleton Village had evolved into a flourishing railway and industrial centre. Carleton Village amalgamated with the Town of West Toronto in 1889. Then in 1909, this region was annexed by the City of Toronto.
