The New England Planters began to arrive in Nova Scotia to settle on former Acadian lands. Townships
were established in Newport, Falmouth and Horton. Many Planter descendants still reside in the area, some on the original land grants. One of their landing places was at Boudreau’s Bank on the Rivière des Habitants (in Mi’kmaq, the Chijekwtook/Jijutu’kwejk). They later would rename the river and district Cornwallis.
