description One would not expect to find that a neighbourhood quarrel about the closing of a road more than 170 years ago could provide information on the founding of an historic church, and explain why two pioneer cemeteries were located only a few hundred yards from each other. However, the discovery of some old records of the Highways Department has thrown light not only on these matters but also on the history and demise of one of the earliest Island settlements, the pioneer village of New London.. Also, there is considerable human interest in the story of a man who built fences across a road, blocking his neighbours from the local ferry, and worse still, from the cemetery where their loved ones were buried.
