title The Farmers' Bank of Rustico: An Episode in Acadian History
creator John T. Croteau
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description At the middle of the nineteenth century the Acadians of Prince Edward Island were probably about as well off economically as the other rural residents of the Island. Physically, life was harsh — a struggle to clear the land and to provide food, clothing, and shelter. Added to this was oppression by agents of absentee landlords and usurious exactions of merchants, "noteshavers," and moneylenders. These burdens, of nature and of society, bore heavily on all.
