When Nicholson, with his fleet and New England
troops, captured Port Royal in 1710, he changed the name to Annapolis
Royal, in honour of Queen Anne. It was besieged the following year by
the Acadians with their Micmac and Penobscot allies, but the New England
garrison held the fort. Under treaty of Utrecht, 1713, ceded to England
by France. In 1744 Paul Mascarene successfully defended the place
against Du Vivier. See also Port Royal. =Bib.=: Calnek and Savary,
