“Nearly two hundred years ago William Schurman, a Loyalist refugee from New Rochelle, New York, settled in what is now Central Bedeque, Prince Edward Island. Children and grandchildren grew up to marry and establish homes of their own on the Island, in the neighbouring provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, on the French island of St. Pierre, and in the United States. William had eleven children, eighty-eight grandchildren, over four hundred great-grandchildren and well over a thousand great-great-grandchildren, who in turn had grandchildren, who had grandchildren today; all in all his descendants up to the present time cannot number much under fifteen thousand.” - from the Preface.
