"Born into the aristocracy of New England, John Wentworth succeeded to the governorship of New Hampshire at a time when the seeds of rebellion were taking root around him. Less than ten years after he was forced to flee the governor's residence under cover of night with his wife and infant son. After five exile years in England he came to Nova Scotia as Surveyor General of the King's Woods, joining the thousands of Loyalists who were migrating from New England. He was appointed governor of the province in 1792 and under his influence Nova Scotia matured, both economically and socially, into a society with a sense of its own destiny." - from the rear cover.
