Lucan Biddulph is an incorporated township in southwestern Ontario, Canada. It was formed on January 1, 1999, by amalgamating the Village of Lucan with Biddulph Township. The township had a population of 4,700 people in the Canada 2016 Census, up 8.3% from 4,388 people in 2011, and covers an area of 169.14 km2 of land within Middlesex County.
The area was settled in the 1840s, many from Ireland, some of whom purchased farmsteads from the departing settlers or new lots sold to them cheaply by the Canada Company. By 1850, the majority of the township's landholders were Irish Catholics, many of whom had immigrated from farming lands in County Tipperary, Ireland.
Biddulph Township is also known as the site of the brutal massacre on February 4, 1880 of five of the Black Donnelly’s, an immigrant Irish family caught up in a long-standing local feud. These events have been written about many times and is etched into the criminal history of rural Ontario; it is well known in Canada and nearby areas of the United States.
And a record snowfall (aka "Snowmageddon") occurred between Dec. 4-8, 2010, affecting Huron and Middlesex counties. A total of 177 cm (68") of snow fell during a 102-hour period (it snowed on 98 of those hours).
