The history of Toronto began in the late 18th century when the British Crown (The Crown) purchased (Toronto Purchase) its land from the Mississaugas of the New Credit (Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation). The settlement established there became York (York, Upper Canada), which lieutenant governor (Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada) John Graves Simcoe designated as the capital of Upper Canada. The city was ransacked in the Battle of York during the War of 1812. In 1834, York became a city and renamed (Name of Toronto) to Toronto. It was damaged in two huge fires in 1849 (Great Fire of Toronto (1849)) and 1904 (Great Fire of Toronto (1904)). Since 1954, the city occasionally expanded its borders through amalgamation (Amalgamation of Toronto) with surrounding municipalities, most recently occurring in 1998. This process has left Toronto with clearly defined neighbourhood (list of neighbourhoods in Toronto)s that have retained their distinctive nature, earning it the nickname the "City of Neighbourhoods".
