The Ship Hector

Appeal to help save Ship Hector.

The ship Hector, which sailed from Scotland to Pictou, N.S. during the summer of 1773 began the mainstream of Scottish immigration to present-day Canada. Much publicity has heralded the launching at Pictou, of a Hector full size replica, an event that financial assistance from Clan Maclean Atlantic helped to make possible. Aboard the Hector were Macleans and non-Maclean ancestors of Macleans living today including Kenneth Smith MacLean of Truro, N.S and Donald Forest MacLean of Halifax, N.S.
