Professor Fergusson observed that the Preston lots had been originally laid out under the orders of Governor Parr's in 1784. Certain of the blacks that had fled in the American Revolution settled there; so, too, did the 500 maroons that came up from Jamaica to Nova Scotia in 1796. By 1812, a significant number of the blacks of Nova Scotia had departed for Africa, Sierra Leone, in 1792.
