From the time of the first settlement of Europeans in King's County until 1910, author Arthur Wentworth Hamilton Eaton, tells the story of Acadian inhabitants in the late 17th century, their expulsion in 1755, and subsequent settlement by New England Planter families, and the development of Kings County.
