James Carter, Loyalist Refugee
After hostilities ceased between the American Patriots and British forces, a refugee from Virginia was settled on 500 acres carved from Moira's 10,000-acre tract. James Carter, along with his wife and two children, were evacuated from Charleston to St. Augustine in 1782 and given a family refugee grant at Lake George on a wooded lot handy to the river. Carter built a small log house and cleared several acres, on which he was able to raise only one crop before the British departed the province. The Carter family migrated to Nova Scotia.
