One of the provisional districts formed out of the
Baronets Of Nova Scotia
An order created by James I, in 1625, for the
purpose of "advancing the plantation of Nova Scotia." The scheme, which
King James had deeply at heart, was designed to assist Sir William
Alexander in his ambitious plans of colonization in the New World, by
offering a special inducement to men of position in Scotland to take
tracts of land in Nova Scotia, and to bring out numbers of colonists to
settle upon them. See also Stirling. =Bib.=: Duncan, Royal Province
