I think it is a strong possibility that this could be your Peter Stover ie; right name, time frame & geographical area. Land Records are indexed according to name & area and are available in microfiche from Archives Ontario, through inter-library loan. Google-- Ontario land Records Index 1780-1920.
You have his exact address of 44 Talbot Rd. in Howard. I don't know whether you would find out any more information about the family in these records.
It is a challenging time period to research given the dearth of civil records.
