BOOK - Planters, Paupers, and Pioneers: English Settlers in Atlantic Canada
By Lucille H. Campey


Softcover... 35.00 (C$)

Lucille Campey studies evidence of early English settlement in Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland. Beginning with the Planters and Loyalists of English descent who arrived from the United States in the second half of the 18th century, she goes on to consider the growing influx directly from England after 1815 and ends with the assisted emigration schemes of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including those that involved destitute children.

Detailed information relating to ship crossings and settlement locations is distilled to provide new insights on how, why, and when the four Atlantic provinces came to acquire their English settlers. What attracted them? Was the rapid industrialization taking place in England a major push factor? How did trade links influence settlement locations?

Extensively documented and including all known passenger lists, together with ship-crossing details, the book is essential reading for individuals wishing to trace family links or deepen their understanding of the emigration process.
