Lucy Cameron Of Cape Breton

Taken from the Nova Scotia petitions 1769-1799 ~ Cape Breton Island petitions 1787-1843 records online:

Cameron, Lucy
Petition to Nepean: Petitioner has lived in Cape Breton for 25 years. Many years before she was married to John Cameron, a lieutenant in the Orange Rangers, who abandoned his wife and large family. Petitioner has since supported herself and family without public aid. She asks a lease of a lot at Cow Bay which her husband held under licence from Pres. Matthews. Note: complied with.

Lucy may be Lucy (Godfrey) Cameron.
