BOOK - Exiles and Islanders, The Irish Settlers of Prince Edward Island
By Brendan O'Grady
The first comprehensive account of the Irish settlers of Prince Edward Island. Exiles and Islanders describes Irish settlement in Prince Edward Island from 1763 to 1880. By tracing the history of these early settlers, Brendan O'Grady demolishes the myth that the Island's Irish settlers were largely refugees from the Great Potato Famine. Using a wide variety of sources, including folklore, newspaper reports, personal interviews, letters, shipping records, and historical data, O'Grady goes beyond mere statistics. We learn about settlers' hometowns in Ireland, why they left, when and how they came to Prince Edward Island, where they settled, and how they adapted to living in PEI. Over ten thousand Irish settled in PEI in the nineteenth century; by 1850 they comprised about a quarter of the Island's population. They were mainly pre-Famine immigrants and mostly Catholic. They came from all thirty-two counties of Ireland and settled in all sixty-seven townships of PEI. They took up farming, fishing, and rural occupations; raised large families; and retained their Irishness for several generations. Exiles and Islanders includes family names and places of origin that will be of particular interest to the Island's Irish descendants. An intriguing cultural history, the book provides new insight into the early settlers of Prince Edward Island. More information

BOOK - A Very Fine Class of Immigrants. Prince Edward Islands Scottish Pioneers. 1770-1850
By L. H. Campey
A Very Fine Class of Immigrants is essential reading for individuals wishing to trace family links or deepen their understanding of how and why the Island came to acquire its distinctive Scottish communities, by accessing, for the first time, by using underused and unused sources like Lloyd's List and the Lloyd's Shipping Register. Previous studies of early Scottish emigration to the New World have tended to concentrate on the miseries of evictions and the destruction of old communities. In this groundbreaking study of the influx of Scots to Prince Edward Island, the widley held assumption that emigration was solely a flight from poverty is challenged. By uncovering previously unreported ship crossings, as well as a wide range of manuscripts and underused sources such as customs records and newspaper shipping reports, the book provides the most comprehensive account to date of the influx of Scots to the island.

BOOK - The Silver Chief: Lord Selkirk and the Scottish Pioneers of Belfast, Baldoon and Red River
Concerns: Prince Edward Island, Baldoon (Wallaceburg, Ontario) and Red River [Manitoba]
By L. H. Campey
Published by Dundurn, Toronto, 2003
Belfast, Prince Edward Island, founded in August 1803, owes its existence to Lord Selkirk. Its bicentennial is a timely reminder of Selkirk’s work in Canada, which extended beyond Belfast to Baldoon (later Wallaceburg) in Ontario, as well as to Red River, the precursor to Winnipeg. Aptly named "The Silver Chief" by the five Indian chiefs with whom he negotiated a land treaty at Red River, the fifth Earl of Selkirk spent an immense fortune in helping Scottish Highlanders relocate themselves in Canada. Selkirk has been well observed through the eyes of the rich and powerful, but his settlers have been neglected. Why did they leave Scotland? Which districts did they come from? Why did they settle in Canada? Why did Selkirk help them? How successful were their settlements? What impact did they have on Canada’s early development? Did Selkirk realize his ambitions for Canada? In answering these questions, Lucille H. Campey presents a new and powerful case for re-assessing the achievements of Selkirk and his settlers. Using a wealth of documentary sources, she reconstructs the sequence of emigration from Scotland to the three areas of Canada where settlements were founded. She shows that emigration took place in a carefully planned and controlled way. She reveals the self-reliance, adaptability and steely determination of the Selkirk settlers in overcoming their many problems and obstacles. They brought their rich traditions of Scottish culture to Canada and, in doing so, helped to secure its distinctively Canadian future. Together, Selkirk and his settlers succeeded against overwhelming odds and altered the course of history. More information

BOOK - Land of the Loyalists, Their struggle to shape the Maritimes
By Janice Potter-MacKinnon
Published by McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal, 1995
Fleeing the American Revolution, Loyalists arrived in the Maritimes driven by a dream: out of the desolate wilderness of present-day Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, they would carve a distinctive cultural and social landscape. Closer to Britain than any of the American states, and only a short sea voyage from New York, the Maritimes seemed to offer the Loyalists a fresh canvas on which to imprint their ideals. In transplanting their British sensibility, ideas of material culture, and respect for order and institutions, the Loyalist leaders attempted to establish New Ireland, a melding of rebellious New England and loyal New Scotland. (Nove Scotia). But this dream for New Ireland was never realized. The Loyalist struggle to impose material and social refinements, and to cultivate a sense of civic responsibility, was frustrated by inhospitable land, long winters, and reluctant inhabitants. Still, the Loyalist legacy is evident today throughout the Maritimes - in the architecture of towns such as Fredericton, New Brunswick and Shelburne, Nova Scotia, and in the social and political institutions of the entire region. This book explores the Loyalists' settlement patters, land distribution, and architectural efforts, as well as the Black Loyalist experience, giving a thorough and engaging look at the forces that created the Loyalist imprint in the Maritimes.

BOOK - North America's Maritime Funnel: The Ships that Brought the Irish, 1749-1852
By Terrence M. Punch
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 2012
New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island were a convenient destination for tens of thousands of Irish immigrants between 1749 and 1852. Functioning as the narrow end of a funnel through which thousands dispersed widely across the North American continent, the Maritimes offered easy access and cheap fares, beckoning emigrants from Ireland’s catchment areas along the waterways of Dublin, Londonderry, and Cork. In all, there is documentation on about 1,050 voyages between Ireland and the Maritimes.

BOOK - Seafaring Labour, The Merchant Marine of Atlantic Canada, 1820-1914
By Eric W. Sager
Published by McGill-Queen's Universtiy Press, Montreal, 1989 (HC), 1996 (SC)
Seafaring Labour, The Merchant Marine of Atlantic Canada, 1820-1914, a compassionate look at the effect of industrialization on the individual lives of sailors is once again available in paperback form. Sager argues that sailors were not misfits or outcasts but were divorced from society only by virtue of their occupation. The wooden ships were small communities at sea, fragments of normal society where workers lived, struggled, and often died. With the coming of the age of steam, the sailor became part of a new division of labour and a new social hierarchy at sea. Sager shows that the sailor was as integral to the transition to industrial capitalism as any land worker.

BOOKS - Some Early Scots in Maritime Canada - Vol 1, 2 & 3
By Terrence M. Punch, CM, FIGRS
Published by Genealogical Publishing Co, Baltimore, 2011, 2011, 2012
The Maritime Provinces of Canada consist of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. Prior to the 1770s the area was inhabited by French Acadians and native peoples, and only after 1770 did it begin to attract Scots settlers, mainly but not exclusively from the Scottish Highlands. The Glenaladale settlers in Prince Edward Island and the valiant band of Highlanders in the Hector (1773) proved to be harbingers of the greatest mass immigration the region would ever see. More numerous than the New England planters and Loyalists who preceded them, and outnumbering the contemporary Irish immigration, the Scots put their stamp on Cape Breton Island, the eastern mainland of Nova Scotia, much of Prince Edward Island, and coastal regions of New Brunswick from Restigouche in the north to the shores of the Bay of Fundy to the south. While they left behind a scattered body of records, it is important to remember that there were two main streams of immigration to the Maritimes, one commencing in the Scottish Highlands, the other in the New England colonies during the period of the Revolutionary War. Fragmentary and scattered though these records are, this book attempts to put names and places to a few thousand of these immigrants in the hope that some readers may find an ancestor or a kinsman. Based on materials found in the Nova Scotia Archives and the Public Archives of New Brunswick, among others, Terrence Punch, who has compiled four volumes of similar data on Irish immigrants to Atlantic Canada, here.

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

BOOKS - Erin's Sons: Irish Arrivals in Atlantic Canada 1761-1863, Four Volumes.
By Terrence M. Punch, FRSAI. Despite the flow of Irish through Atlantic Canada, the early records of these immigrants are fewer and less informative than those of New England and New York from the same period. Erin’s Sons: Irish Arrivals in Atlantic Canada series of books goes a long way toward rectifying this problem. Author Terrence M. Punch has combed through a wide-ranging and disparate group of sources—including newspaper articles and advertisements, local government documents and census records, church records, burial records, land records, military records, passenger lists, and more—to identify as many of these pioneers as possible and disclose where they came from in the Old Country. These sources often contain details that cannot be found in Irish records, where few census returns survived from before 1901, and where Catholic records began a generation or more after their counterparts in Atlantic Canada.

American Revolution / United Empire Loyalists:
    In response to protests in Boston over the British Parliament's attempts to maintain authority over its North American colonies, the British mobilized its army to put down the rebellion. Consequently the rebels formed militias of like-minded individuals to face the British military and to 'discourage' those colonial citizens who wished to remain loyal to the crown. Fighting broke out in 1775, offically ending in 1783 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. Surviving Loyalists needed to find refuge outside of the United States. The movement of United Empire Loyalists to Canada was a critical event in the settlement of what later became Canada. Loyalists settled throughout the present-day Atlantic provinces, Quebec and Ontario. Their descendants migrated throughout Canada and beyond.

BOOK - Loyalist Refugees, Non-Military Refugees in Quebec 1776-1784
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2014
Soldiers did not come alone. In the past, wives, mothers, fathers, grandparents, sisters, brothers and children of the fighting men have been given secondary treatment. In Loyalist Refugees, they are the subjects of a study describing the systematic persecution that forced so many to seek refuge in Quebec. How these unfortunate people were housed, fed, clothed and employed is examined, as is their desperate unhappiness and discontent. This book identifies and lists details for more than 2,000 non-military loyalist refugees who sheltered in lower Quebec during the American Revolution—pointing researchers to crucial primary and secondary sources in Canada, the USA, and the UK.

BOOK - Sketches Illustrating The Early Settlement and History of Glengarry in Canada
By J. A. MacDonell.
J. A. MacDonell recognized that much had been written on the subject of United Empire Loyalist settlement in Ontario, the War of 1812-14, and the Rebellion of 1837-8, but expressed concern that there was little mention made of the part that the Highlanders of Glengarry played in those conflicts. He corrects that oversight within the 29 chapters that comprise this formitable text. This book is an fine source of information for those interested in early settlement of the Highlanders in Glengarry and surrounding counties, and the role that they played in the American Revolution, United Empire Loyalist migration and settlement, War of 1812, and the Rebellion of 1837-38.
