LUNENBURG
MILITIA LOOKING FOR INDIANS

September 8-15, 1758

In the early years of the Lunenburg, the natives were definitely hostile and attacked and killed some of the settlers, especially those on their 30 acre lots.

The attacks became so serious that the Militia was convened in Lunenburg and went out looking for the natives. The patrol consisted of one Regular Officer and 23 of his regular troops, and 80 Militia men, Capt Christopher Jessen commanding.

In his book "History of the County of Lunenburg" (p 50-1), MB DesBrisay gives a journal account of the week's patrol. Natives were never encountered although some encampments were discovered. Most of the daily entries concluded "Nothing extraordinary".

A peace with the natives was achieved in early 1760 and the threat of further attacks removed.

The following Table is an alphabetical listing of those on this Militia patrol.

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 is new to me and is marked with a *.
  • FULL NAME as found on the documents consulted and the man's Rank.

    All this data was kindly transcribed 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.
