Coleraine is an unincorporated rural community in Brampton, Peel Region, Ontario, Canada.[1][2]


Coleraine was founded in the 1830s.[3] The settlement's name may be derived from the names of two families who settled in the area, the Cole family and the Raines family.[4] The Cole family built a house in the area, and Thomas Cole Jr. served as township councillor from 1863 to 1874.[5]

The settlement had a post office from 1852 to 1916.[6]

The now-extinct Coleraine Wesleyan Methodist Church and its cemetery, Coleraine Burying Grounds, were located west of the settlement. A cairn was erected at the former cemetery by the Town of Vaughan in 1981.[7][8]
