Nova Scotia Archives

Au cœur de l'Acadie

Registres du gouvernement britannique à Annapolis Royal, 1713-1749


     With a view to having in print the Minutes of His Majesty's Council at Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia Archives III for the period 25 April, 1720 to 17 August, 1736 was edited by Archibald M. MacMechan and published in 1908. Now Nova Scotia Archives IV, containing the available Minutes of His Majesty's Council at Annapolis Royal. 1736-1749, is being published

     When Dr. MacMechan edited his volume he reproduced the original minutes for 1720 to 1736 which are available at the Public Archives of Nova Scotia. Unfortunately, however, the original minutes for the years 1736 to 1749 are not now available to me and I have had to rely upon copies of Minutes of Council obtained from several sources. There are obvious gaps in these copies.

     The contents of this volume were taken from the following

     Public Archives of Nova Scotia, Manuscript Documents, Volumes 11, 24 and 25; Rev. Andrew Brown Manuscripts; C.O. 217/ 7, ff. 212-214; C.O. 217/8, ff. 14-17, 42, 60-61, 80, 82-86, 139-140, 153-154, 168, 181-182, 192; C.O. 217/9, ff. 15-16, 34-36; C.O. 217/ 31, ff. 117-124, 127-129, 150-151, 191-192; C.O. 217/40, ff. 36-37. 40-42.
