The Little Britain Merchants were founded in 1978 as members of the Southern Counties Junior D Hockey League.
In 1984, the Merchants made the jump to the Central Lakeshore Junior C Hockey League. Two year later, the league merged with the Quinte-St. Lawrence Junior C Hockey League and formed the Central Ontario Junior C Hockey League. The expansion of the Merchants was to fill the void left by the folding of the Stouffville Clippers.
In the 1997-98 season, the Merchants finished first overall in the Central Ontario league regular season with twenty-seven wins in forty games. The Merchants went on to win the their first and only league championship that year.
The 2005-06 seasons saw the Little Britain Merchants finish the regular season in second place overall. In the league semi-final, the Merchants drew the third seeded Uxbridge Bruins. The series went the distance with the Bruins pulling out the game 7 victory to clinch the series 4-games-to-3 and ruin any form of Merchant playoff run.
The 2006-07 regular season ended with the Merchants finishing in third place overall. Their semi-final opponent would prove to be the second seeded Port Perry Mojacks. In a long, hard fought series, the two teams pushed on to the bitter end where the Mojacks came out victorious winning game 7 and the series 4-games-to-3 to advance to the league final.
