BjCj-18 site: Shell-Edged Pearlware Plates

These fragments of plates were found at a house site in East Tracadie (BjCj-18). Since this ceramic ware was produced in England from 1780 to the 1830s, one can associate the house with a first or second generation Black Loyalist family. Although the pearlware plate rims found at this site suggest it was occupied by the family of one of the original grantees, more research is required before anyone can say which family lived here.
