description <p>Census takers of 1841 wrote most<br />favourably of the area surrounding<br />Bedeque. British settlement of Lot<br />26 had begun with the arrival of several<br />families of United Empire Loyalists<br />in the late 1700s. By 1840, the population<br />was a fairly even mix of ethnic origins<br />and denominations, with three<br />established churches, four schools,<br />and several mills. Bedeque itself,<br />advantageously located on Bedeque<br />Bay, was a small but bustling centre of<br />trade, enjoying a commercial prominence<br />not yet ceded to the emerging<br />community of Summerside.</p>
