Samuel Holland: His Work and Legacy on Prince Edward Island
Samuel Holland: His Work and Legacy on Prince Edward Island written by Earle Lockerby and Douglas Sobey
In 1764-65, surveyor Holland, on orders from the British Crown, created the first truly accurate map of Prince Edward Island, dividing it into townships and counties, designating it county capitals, including the provincial capital Charlottetown. Holland's map has had an enormous impact on the evolution of Prince Edward Island, shaping its settlement, its patterns of land ownership, the familiar place named that dot its landscape, even its status as a province.
This important new book will educate islanders and visitors alike about Samuel Holland and his historic survey, and paint a detailed picture, based on Holland's survey report, of what Prince Edward Island looked like 250 years ago - who lived here, where, and how.
