250th Celebration of the arrival of the ships Elizabeth and Lovely Kitty

This summer marks the 250th anniversary of the 1774 arrival of the ships Elizabeth and Lovely Kitty, which brought settlers from England to the newly established settlements of New London on Prince Edward Island. Some descendants of these settlers went on to found the Anglican Parish of New London and populated the area around and to the west of New London Bay. Many Islanders today can trace their roots back to the events of the summer of 1774, as these early settlers played a significant role in the establishment of the province of PEI.

To commemorate this milestone, the Parish will host a celebration on June 30 at St. Thomas in Springbrook (5999 Route 20), the oldest of the four churches in the Anglican Parish and the closest to the original New London settlements. The event will feature a worship service at 11 am, displays of historical artifacts, and an afternoon of talks by Island historians. Additionally, there will be period-appropriate games for children and light refreshments.
