Danville, a village in Richmond county, Quebec, on the Canadian National Railway, 36 miles north of Sherbrooke. The name was given in memory of the locality in Vermont from which the first settlers came. The village has saw-mills, and belt and clothes-pin factories; and it is the centre of a farming and dairying district.

     Shipton may refer to the Richmond County township rather than a town, as no information has been found on a town of that name.
