June 9,1761 the first English settlers to come to Yarmouth landed at Town
Point, which is located in Chebogue. The first settlers were three families,
all of whom were from Sandwich, Mass. The three families were the Perrys,
Ellisses and the Landers. All of these family names can still be found
throughout Yarmouth and Nova Scotia. The three families came across on
the Pompey Dick.
In 1761 the first English child in Yarmouth county was born to one of the founding families of Chebogue.
