The first of three books on The English in Canada, it considers the factors that brought the English to Atlantic Canada. It traces the English arrivals to their various settlements in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland, and considers their reasons foremigrating. Who were they? When did they arrive? Were they successful? Wha t was their lasting impact? Drawing on wide-ranging documentary sources, including passenger lists, newspaper shipping reports, and the wealth of material to be found in English county record offices and in Canadian national and provincial archives, the book provides extensive information about the immigrants and their settlements and details of more than seven hundred Atlantic crossings - essential reading for individuals wishing to trace English and Canadian family links or to deepen their understanding of the emigration process." - from rear cover.
