Nova Scotia Historical Newspapers

The Nova Scotia Chronicle and Weekly Advertiser

 7 February 1769

Volume 1 Number 6

Printed by Anthony Henry, at his Printing-Office, in George-Street, Halifax.

This title is one in an unbroken chain of official and semi-official government newspapers published in Nova Scotia, from the Halifax Gazette on 23 March 1752 to the present-day Royal Gazette. The Nova Scotia Chronicle and Weekly Advertiser has been called 'the liveliest journal of opinion produced in Canada' for its time; regular features included tide tables, shipping news, weather reports and advertisements. It had less than 80 subscribers when it began in 1769, and lasted only a year before taking a new title, the Nova Scotia Gazette and Weekly Chronicle.

Issues from 1769 and 1770
