I have been reading a new CD-ROM version of George Stayley Brown's "Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Geneaolgies" first printed in 1888. Yarmouth was first settled in 1761 by New England Planters who were encouraged to settle lands vacated after 1755 by French Acadian farmers (some called Cajuns when they settled in Western Louisiana) who were forceably removed from their lands by the English Governor when they would not pledge allegiance to the King of England.
The first seven families to settle Yarmouth, NS, arrived in 1761. They were exclusively from Mass, NY, or CT. More came each year after 1761. George Brown mentions in extracts from 1767 that land belonging to Judah Agard had been sold to another settler. It is likely that Juadah arrived around 1763 or 1764 and he seems to be gone from the scene by 1767. Since he was a land owner, he was certainly of age by the 1760's, and was likely born in the 1720's or 1730's.
I had read this book (as a hardcover) over 40 years ago and did not recall this name when I was reading the new CD. My questions are  what line was Judah AGARD from ?  what are the origins of this name - is it perhaps a Huguenot name (French Protestant)?  Did any other AGARD family members come to Nova SCotia- this was 20 years befpre the Revolution;  What caused Judah to stay in Nova Scotia for such a short time ? and -  where did he go ?
A quick peek at the Canadian phone books on-line shows there are 72 AGARD listings. About 90% are living in Ontario. Jusah does not seem to have died in Yarmouth, NS. Did he pick up and move westward to Ontario (then called Upper Canada and sparsely settled)?Or did he perhaps go back to the new USA ?
