Map of Port Greville, NS, Canada

Port Greville was the location of the construction of many sailing ships used in trade mainly with the American New England states. Many sea captains came from the area with names such as Wagstaff, Pettis and Merriam.

One such vessel was the three masted schooner 'Minas King', captained by George Merriam with his cousin J.Randall Merriam operating as first mate. Randall Merriam later became a Master Mariner (inland waters) and captained several of the Canadian National ferries operating between Cape Tormentine New Brunswick and Borden PEI.
