Thomas Cribben who had served as Master in the Royal Navy for many years,
was the first settler at Cribben's Point or Head about 1789. He was a native of
Great Britain but in 1789 he was living on half pay with his family at
Antigonish and asked for 500 acres. In 1810 this was granted to his widow
Lucinna Sherlocke and his two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary Ann Cribben.
