Illustrated. Map. 8vo, illustrated beige and green card covers. Planters Studies Series No.1. "Between 1759 and1768 some 8,000 New England Planters emigrated to what are now the Maritim e Provinces of Canada. Known as 'planters', the old English term for colonist, they were among the first English-speaking immigrants to the area of present day Canada. Because the Acadian deportation and Loyalist migration were far more dramatic events in Maritime history than the peaceful migrationof land-hungry Yankees, the Planters have received less attention than the ir numbers warrant. They left an indelible mark on their Maritime homeland and their influence has spread throughout North America. Descendants of thePlanters include major educators, theologians, inventors, industrialists, social reformers, politicians, and at least two Canadian Prime Ministers." - from the rear cover.

Ethel had been raised in Derby township, New Haven county, Connecticut, U.S.A., where his great-grandfather, John Davis, had lived in 1690. Ethel Davis came here with his Loyalist German in-laws and his Loyalist military associates. Ethel Davis’ widow walked to Halifax for a deed to land on Long Island.
