LUNENBURG DISTRIBUTION of LIVE STOCK
1754

In addition to receiving Garden Lots for growing vegetables and cereals, the early settlers needed live stock to supply meat. So during the summer of 1754 the authorities contracted for live stock to be purchased in New England and transported to Lunenburg. There were two such deliveries.

The first delivery occurred in September 1754 and consisted of 74 cows, 847 sheep, 125 pigs, and 188 goats.

The second consignment landed December 18, 1754 from Captain Stourts Vessel and consisted of 145 sheep and 36 pigs plus a few chickens.

The distribution was done by pairing married men together and then drawing lots for the September delivery. The first pairing of married men received 1 cow and 1 sheep to share; the remainder of paired married men received either 6 sheep, 1 pig, and 1 goat, or 5 sheep, 1 pig, and 1 goat, or 4 sheep and 2 goats, possibly in proportion to the size of their families.

Single men were also paired into three groups for the September consignment: "good" single men, "indefferent" single men, or "bad" single men, with the last group being slightly larger than the other two combined. The "good" received 3 sheep, 1 pig, and 1 goat, while the "indefferent" and "bad" men received 3 sheep and 2 goats.

The December consignment was generally given to individuals, many of whom had already received live stock.

For a more complete description of this distribution, see pages 477-480 of Bell's book.

The following Table is an alphabetical listing of those who received live stock.

This Table is in two sections as follows:

  • Standardized FAMILY NAME spelling that is used elsewhere in this web site and my best guess. In some cases, the name's spelling is quite different and that found is (included).
  • Given NAME as found on the documents consulted.
  • The Lot Number or Dec for the December consignment.
  • The actual Live Stock distributed
  • Whether the Live Stock was shared or not
  • Whether the individuals were in the married or one of the single groupings.

    To save space the pairings are not shown. You could search through the data set or e-mail me for that information.

    All this data was kindly photocopied and forwarded by Lorrie YOUNG of Lower Sackville, NS from lists compiled by Dr Winthrop Bell and held at the Public Archives of Nova Scotia in Halifax.

    The original data is in PANS Vol 382, doc 9. Bell's transcriptions are found in MS1 Vol 113, pages 316-320.
