With Addenda and Index. "The book here offered to the public is the product of a half century ofpreparation. It was first conceived and made possible by Professor Arnold Doane who employed his vacations in ferreting out the life-stories and relationships of the early settlers of Barrington. This work he continued untilhis death in 1911. 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).
