Based on the land papers in the Public Archives of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotian Department of Lands and Forests, this work encompasses all surviving information on Loyalist settlements in Nova Scotia. Arranged by county and thereunder by record category (grant, warrant, or escheat), this compact work lists nearly 10,000 Loyalists who were eligible for land in Nova Scotia. Each Loyalist is identified by name, date and site of the grant, acreage, and, in some cases, the individual's military rank.
