Quaker Settlement in Charlotte County

From a Director's Chair by Bruce Jackson

“Quaker settlement in Charlotte County occurred at about the same time as the Loyalists, and was initially in the Beaver Harbour and Pennfield areas. Due to natural disaster such as forest fires and the hardship of early settlement, these settlements would eventually disband, and relocate to other areas of the County, the Province and beyond. The present day name of Pennfield is derived from these early Quaker settlers”.
