From The Pioneer Farmer and Backwoodsman Volume 2 by Edwin C. Guillet “We have no landlord to come at Michaelmas to say ‘I want my rent!’ No poor rates to pay; we are in a free country. It is a pretty thing to stand at one’s own door and see a hundred acres of land of his own.” – A letter of Robert Slade September 1835
Today I’ll be chatting about the first steps settlers would have had to take when arriving in the Talbot Settlement and what the settler’s duties were to get their land deed.
The Backus Page House Museum and Tyrconnell Heritage Society acknowledges the land we are on today as the traditional territory of First Nations People. As settlers at a settler focused museum, we value both the significant historical and contemporary contributions of all Original Peoples and ask how we can be supportive in Indigenous Cultural Renewal?
