Afterwards the subscriber, who had long felt the import ance of preserving the history of his native township, acquired the memoranda left by Prof. Doane and has put them with many changes and extensive additions into their present shape. The Archives at Ottawa, Halifax, Liverpooland Yarmouth, as well as of Shelburne ard Barrington have been searched an d the answers to many questions of general and local historical interest are here made known. [...] Historians of Nova Scotia have generally, through ignorance or lack of perspective, ignored the earlier and more substantial pre^loyalist settlement and its impor- tance to the Province, while invariably featuring the refugee loyalists and their miseries. In Shelburne Countyin particular the older township was for the time complete- ly overshadowe d by the new one. We have attempted to present these factors of township and provincial foun- dations in their true and proper proportions in this work." (from Crowell's preface).

DAVIS, Ralph Harold. The Davis Family of Connecticut, New York, Brier Island and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, 1609-1997 : A History and Genealogy. [Halifax]: The Author, n.d. [1997]. "Pagination and printing by William Richard Dav is, Sentinel Printing, 14 Kirk Street, Yarmouth, N.S." Pp 1-204. Many illustrations in the text. 8vo, illustrated cardcovers.

"The illustration of Grand Passage shows Long Island (on the left), where Ethel Davis had owned a home lot, and Brier Island (on the right), where he lived and is buried. 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. Their grandson, Samuel Davis, saved shipwrecked men by believing his “vision of the night”. Capt. Sam Davis resettled his family in Yarmouth, and helped his sons, Ralph and Oscar, establish the R.H. Davis & Co. Ltd. business there. The business celebrated 100 years in 1997. This narrative, collected by Ralph’s grandson, Ralph Harold Davis, follows the family history through to 1997."

34 EATON, Arthur Wentworth Church of England in Nova Scotia and the Tory Clergy of the Revolution. 1st ed.
Thomas Whittaker, New York, 1891, 
EATON, Arthur Wentworth. The Church of England in Nova Scotia and the Tory Clergy of the Revolution. New York : Thomas Whittaker, 1891. First US Edition. Pp. 320. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Watters p.780, Rhodenizer p.321, Laugher p.159. "The attention I have given to biography, in this volume, has seemed to me necessary from the fact that the Church in Nova Scotia, which has been quite out of the range of great movements of thought, and great events, has had, notwithstanding, among its clergy and laity, a large number of distinguished men. Many of its early clergy were highly educated and able men, who at the Revolution left comfortable parishes in the older Colonies for raw missions in the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick wilds, and long and manfully did the Church's work on these new shores."-from the Preface. Contents: 1. The Annapolis Garrison, 2. Halifax and the Venerable Society, 3. The Church Established, 4. Historic St. Paul's, 5. Four Early Missions, 6. The Coming of the Loyalists, 7. The First Colonial Bishop, 8. The Church at Shelburne, 9. The New Tory Province, 10. Exiled Clergy of the Revolution, 11. King's College, 12. The Church's Growth, 13. Later Bishops, 14.
