Pain Court: Welcome our web site!
It’s been one year since we launched the new site. And hundreds have visited and followed the daily updates to the Facebook page or viewed the many memories of the people and community over the last 168 years when the first church was built. But the community dates further back, Settlers had started to build homes along the Thames as early as the early 1800’s, and later on, on the farms known as the Pain Court Block.
And today, we are so proud of our village and area located in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent, along the Thames River in South-Western Ontario. A rich agricultural area, Pain Court is extremely proud of its many accomplishments over the years. We are trying to bring this information to you on the site. Interesting stories, references to many books published, even videos on You Tube that were downloaded from movies that date back to 1926. And numerous photos from the families over the years and more recently the memories of our 150 th Anniversary celebration of 2004.
And this year, new additions. Exciting drone overviews of the village, the former businesses and sites, the industrial area, the schools and church. We are also working on an exciting project. The identification of the people in the thousands of photos.. We need your help.
Information is coming soon. Enjoy your visit!

Pain Court Bread
Are you aware that Maple City Bakery introduced a Pain Court bread a few years ago. It’s available most mornings at the bakery. And it can also be ordered as Buns…for family functions, banquets and for a great local bread for your meals. The bread is highly nutritious. A special recipe of multigrain sourdough. Yummy and Super choice for toasts. If more people order, it will continue to be available. Normally on the top shelf, towards the side door.
