Saint Ann's in Victoria County, Nova Scotia — The Canadian Atlantic
Reverend Norman McLeod
1780 - 1866
As clergyman, schoolmaster and magistrate, he moulded the character of this community for a generation. Born at Stoer Point, Assynt, Scotland, he emigrated to Pictou in 1817, led his band of Scots to St. Ann in 1820 and remained here until 1851, when he again led his followers first to Australia and finally to New Zealand.
