The first-ever comprehensive book written on early English immigration to Canada, Planters, Paupers, and Pioneers introduces a series of three titles on The English in Canada. Focusing on factors that brought the English to Atlantic Canada, it traces the English arrivals to their various settlements in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland, and considers their reasons for leaving their homeland. Who were they? When did they arrive? Were they successful? What was their lasting impact?

Drawing on wide-ranging documentary sources, including passenger lists, newspaper shipping reports, and the wealth of material to be found in English county record offices and in Canadian national and provincial archives, the book provides extensive details of the immigrants and their settlements and gives details of more than 700 Atlantic crossings — essential reading for individuals wishing to trace English and Canadian family links or to deepen understanding of the emigration process.

Lucille H. Campey was born in Ottawa and is a professional researcher and historian. Having married an Englishman, she moved to England where she acquired her M.A. in medieval history from Leeds University, then completed a doctorate on emigration history from the University of Aberdeen. She is the author of eight books on early Scottish emigration to Canada. Lucille and Geoff Campey live near Salisbury in Wiltshire.

"Campeys chapters are well-written and hold the readers attention." -
