title P.E.I. Passenger Lists: Part Two
creator Janet Dale
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description With the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1763, French and British sabres clattered to the ground and the consolidation of the British Empire was underway. "Isle St. Jean" became the "Island of St. John," and a consequential, claim-staking emigration began from the conquering British islands to what a later journalist called "the horrible Gulf of St. Lawrence." Because many Prince Edward Islanders are descended from the pioneers of that early settlement period, we presented in the previous issue of The Island Magazine three of the eleven extant nominal passenger lists for ships bound from British ports to Prince Edward Island.
