The Hector arrived at Pictou. After a voyage of eleven weeks, the ship landed at Brown’s Point with 189 settlers (having lost eighteen on the voyage to dysentery and smallpox). The settlers originated from Lochbroom — Northern Scottish Highlanders who spoke mainly Gaelic. The provisions they were promised didn’t materialize and they had to quickly build shelter before winter set in. (Photo: The Hector. Photograph by Dennis Jarvis. Wikipedia Creative Commons).
