  • Notes 
    • Margaret, the eldest daughter of David Archibald, Esq., and Elizabeth Elliot his wife, was born in Londonderry, Ireland, December 15th, 1749. She came with the rest of the family when she was 8 years old to New England, and from thence to Nova Scotia, when she was about 13 years old. She was married to John Savage. She was his second wife; his first wife, Jane, died April 3rd, 1767, aged 24 years.

      John Savage was one of the grantees of Truro Township, and was an active member of society. He was a land surveyer, and at one time he agreed wi!h the proprietors of the Township to subdivide their back lands into one hundred acre lots; for this work he was to have twelve thousand acres off the south-west comer of the Township, extending down the Shubenacadie River four miles, and as far east as it would require to make up the complement. This work was never done by him, as he died shortly after. He was one of the seven elders of the Presbyterian Church who were chosen in the summer of the year 1770. He had one son by his second wife, Margaret Archibald, they called him David. Mr. and Mrs. Savage both died when their son David was quite young, and he was taken by his grandfather, David Archibald, Esq., and brought up with his other grandson, S. G. W. Archibald.

      This David Savage was married to Elizabeth Brydon, and they kept an Inn near the place where Mr. Tremain now resides. In the year 18OO they removed to the United States.
