In Reply to: Richard Marple-Loyalist ? - Nova Scotia by Kerry Gryczynski of 164

I checked in the book Nova Scotia Immigrants to 1867 by Leonard and Norma Smith. They have a Richard Marpole listed--not much information just "Loyalist, drew boards on Botsford Grant. For an explanation of the Botsford Grant you should check out

or just do an advanced search on Google using the exact phrase option and putting in Botsford Grant. Isn't the internet wonderful!!
The only Marples or Marpoles in Nova Scotia by 1881 were a family in Cape Breton. Many of the Loyalists ended up going home after the dust of war settled. You can access the 1881 Census at
