title Thomas Halliday, Mary Cochrane, The Earl of Selkirk, and the Island
creator Bumsted, J.M.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description While most early immigration to Prince Edward Island involved groups of new arrivals, over the years the Island was also the destination of a number of individuals and individual families, mainly from Scotland. Although the bulk of the newcomers sought to farm, many were skilled tradesmen and artisans, impelled to depart their homeland by economic difficulties and the lure of landowning. One such immigrant was Thomas Halliday, a stonemason from Edinburgh. Unlike the vast majority of his fellow immigrants, Halliday has left us an account of his experiences, preserved in his own inimitable language in the Selkirk Papers at the Public Archives of Canada.
