Like their cousins the Whitby Dunlops, the McFarlands grew out of the Ontario Senior B system of the early 1950's. They became part of a Senior A league in Eastern Ontario in 1956-57.
The team was partially subsidized by a local contractor named Harvey McFarland, hence the name. It was also being subsidized by the city of Belleville, which lost over $100,000.
They folded at the beginning of the 1960-61 season when the Dunlops also folded. At the time, the rest of the teams were in southwestern Ontario which meany very long road trips. Attempts to ressurect the team in a league in the Ottawa District Hockey Association also foundered due to travel costs.
