I have already mentioned in this blog the emigration from Hutton Rudby to Nova Scotia in the 18th century. It was prompted and encouraged by Charles Dixon (1730-1817), who owned the paper mill in the village (you will find a reference to him, for example, in this chapter on the Faceby Mormons).
As a result, quite a number of his fellow Methodists left the village for Canada.
I have just realised that the account of Charles Dixon's life can now be read online.
You will find it here – but if for any reason that link does not work, search for "Charles Dixon" and "Nova Scotia" and you will find it.
