description <p>For 130 years, the tide of European<br />immigration flowed into Prince<br />Edward Island. Beginning in 1720,<br />French and Acadian settlers had come;<br />afterwards, the British. Sometimes the<br />tide was dammed by war or economics<br />or the politics of property. Sometimes it<br />was diverted by the lure of free land or<br />ready fortunes in other parts of the New<br />World. But always the tide continued to<br />flow. Though a goodly portion were<br />English, Scots — Highlanders mainly<br />— comprised the lion's share of the<br />immigrants. At first, they came in discreetgroups,<br />often under the patronage<br />of aperson or group.</p>
