Book-on-CD Edition

This highly respected volume includes a general history of Colchester County as it was recorded in 1873, however the bulk of the book is a wonderful collection of genealogical information of many of the early families (1873 and before).

It was the the intention of the author to write only about his "own kindred; but he was led on to mention nearly all the Grantees of the Townships of Truro, and some of Onslow and Londonderry, with their descendants, as far as he could gather information".
