Scope and content

Series forms part of the Eastern Shore Archives map collection and consists of reproductions of maps acquired by Chrystal Kennedy from originals held by the National Archives of Canada in 2003. They consist of early maps of Nova Scotia including Cape Breton, the Island of St John (PEI), New Brunswick, and Sable Island and feature the names of coastal settlements and harbours as well as bodies of water, waterways, and offshore banks. Two of the maps were possibly drawn by Charles Morris I c. 1749 while the third map is a 1928 copy by C. Pettigrew of an earlier map that was originally drawn by Captain Thomas Durrell c. 1736.
