"When the British finally began their re-settlement scheme in 1759, the Governor & Council in Halifax established five counties, and made provision for an initial set of New England-style farming and fishing townships, including Sackville. In 1760-61 families began moving up from Rhode Island, and on the 20th of July, 1762, the Committee authorized to distributethe lands within Sackville Township began their work. The founding of Sack ville is the story of these 'planter' families struggling to establish new homes along the dyked marshlands of the Tanttramar. Ten years later immigrants from Yorkshire joined the Planters dided to stay, and in the wake of Loyalist immigrants in the 1780s the new province of New Brunswick was partitioned from the old Nova Scotia, leaving Sackville the very first town in all of this new province." - from rear cover.
