New Scotland (Nova Scotia) was founded in the early 1600s by Sir William
Alexander of Menstrie, Scotland. It included what is known as Atlantic
Canada and Anticosti Island. Sir William Alexander funded and settled the
colony by a system of Baronets of Nova Scotia, a hereditary title used to
this day. See
