Seeking SNAIR in Nova Scotia
I am searching for the history of my family in Nova Scotia. My grandfather was Sydney James SNAIR, who was born around 1895 perhaps in Black Point and died in 1923. In 1916 he married Sue VASS of West Virginia. They had three children born there, Phyllis born either Jan. 29, 1918 or Feb.19, 1918, Melita and Shirley and a son Sydney, born after his death in West Virginia. Grandfather's mothers' maiden name was MANUEL and he had several siblings, one being named George.
I would appreciate any information you can give me.
Oh yes, I have a pen from Snair's Black Eagle Bakery , Ltd., Black Point, NS.
Thank you very much
Looking for Loyalist PROCTORs
I am researching my husband's PROCTOR line of the Royal North Carolina Regiment. He arrived on the ARGO at Canso in the summer of 1783. My husband's 2nd great grandfather, James Newton PROCTOR, his probable brother Benjamin and his family all had returned to the States by 1809. Don't know where they were for a while in between. But I wonder if all the PROCTORS returned to the States.
There were in N.S, another James and a John, among others who were very probably related. I wonder if any of the family remained in Canada? Would love to locate a Canadian cousin. Judging by the names in common, those PROCTORS who were Loyalists were likely related. Canadian cousins, please contact Proctorirm@aol.com.

Yorkshire Passenger Lists to Fort Cumberland
(EDITOR'S NOTE -- This material was distributed on from the Immigrant Passenger lists.)

Yorkshire Passenger Lists to Fort Cumberland
Contributed by Peter A. Kincaid
In June 1755, the French Fort Beausejour fell to the English forces under Col. Robert MONCKTON. He renamed it Fort Cumberland after the Duke of Cumberland who was King George II's third son and the army's commander-in-chief. Over the next few years, a number of disbanded soldiers and New Englanders settled upon the confiscated Acadian lands in the Fort Cumberland region. Many eventually left for various reasons including the loss of a vital market when the Fort Cumberland garrison was transferred to Halifax in 1768. Just prior to the outbreak of the American Revolution, Governor Michael Franklin of Nova Scotia brought about the settlement of a significant number of Yorkshire families in the Isthmus of Chignecto.
Likely motivated by the possible forfeiture of his private lands, he brought approximately 1,000 people from the Yorkshire region of Northern England between 1772 and 1775 so as to settle them on his Nova Scotian properties.
One of the first group of Yorkshire settlers left from Liverpool on March 16, 1772, on board the Duke of York. Following a voyage of 45 days its 62 passengers were landed safely at Halifax. The settlers then went by schooner to Cumberland and landed on May 21st. More settlers subsequently followed in other ships with the larger groups arriving in 1774.
Given below are passenger lists for the ships Albion, and Jenny which sailed directly to Fort Cumberland. While some passengers went elsewhere, most settled in the Chignecto region and their surnames are still found in the southeastern area of New Brunswick.
The book Emigrants from England 1773-1776 gives two other lists of Yorkshire settlers bound for Nova Scotia. They were for the passengers of the Two Friends which departed Hull on March 7, 1774, and for the passengers of an unnamed ship which left Scarborough on April 12, 1774. Interested individuals should consult these as some of the persons listed are known to have made their way to the Chignecto area.
