From Dean W. Bourque
Hill (Y) : East
of Yarmouth in the municipality of Argyle.
This community recalls
the resilience of the Acadian People, who returned
in numbers to Nova Scotia
following the expulsion of 1755. Nearby
Pubnico was an important
Acadian settlement both before and following the
expulsion, for this was
one area where the lands had not been confiscated
by others. As the population
of settlements such as Pubnico expanded, the
settlers moved farther along
the shore. Thus, about 1800, Jaques Amirault
of Pubnico settled in
the district which bears his name.
