Could I get some information from anyone
out there about how there came to be two sep-
erate groups of doreys in Nova Scotia.
I live in the Lunenburg County area here we have been told that we decended from one
Nicolas Dare with the accent over the E.
this person came over on the ship called the
Betty in 1752.Sence the name was sopposed to have developed into Dorey as the storey goes
I would think that I should have relatives
who have the last name Dare I can establish
no such connection, and sence Dorey seems to be a name so well connected with the Acadian
culture in the Arichat area,and sence my family are in this area tied to a community
called Walden which I am told is derived from
a latin word or phrase meaning(hidding place)
I wonder if the explanation we have been given is not one of conveince to explain and
fit us into the French from Montbilard rather
than admit that the Acadian expulsion was in fact not the sucess they the English claim in
an effort to fudge over the historical truth
of the fact that England was not nearly as interested in loyality to the crown as they was in clearing the way to steal cultivated land and livestock from the Acadians to give to the new settlers as records clearly show
they did in 1755.
As we have seen in Scotland when the English of that time wanted to accomplish a goal they let very little get in their way.
