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.
