SHIPS PASSENGER LISTS TO CANADA

Ships' Passenger Lists, Return of 74 Families Germans Shipped on board the SPEEDWELL for Halifax in Nova Scotia the 11th May 1751

Contributor: Catherine DiPietro
Source: Historic Saga of LeHeve by Ruth E. Kaulback, 1970. The surnames are original spellings from the English clerk recording German and French speaking people so the actual spelling varies.

Almost everyone on the passenger lists are foreign protestants, recruited by the British to populate Nova Scotia with loyal, fresh tax payers. These folks were victualled in Halifax for two to three years before founding and populating Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia.

Return of 74 Families Germans Shipped on board the SPEEDWELL, Joseph Wilson, master, for Halifax in Nova Scotia the 11th May 1751
