Ste. Croix Island


Ste. Croix Island
   Near the entrance to the Bay of Fundy; explored by Champlain and De Monts in 1604, who in that year erected buildings and fortifications on the island. Scurvy breaking out among the French colonists, they soon afterwards removed from the island to Port Royal. The foundations of these buildings were dug up in 1797, settling a boundary dispute between New Brunswick and Maine in favour of the former.
   Index: Ch Occupied by the De Monts expedition, 21; settlement there a failure, 24.
