>To clarify what county Boularderie Island is in:
Prior to 1851 Boularderie was in Cape Breton County.
Patterson's History of Victoria County, p 1, states:
"The County [Victoria] was separated from the adjoining
County of Cape Breton in the year 1851, but the Act was
amended the following Session, at which time the boundaries
were arranged as follows: 'The County of Cape Breton shall
comprise all that part of the late County of Cape Breton to
the southward of a line commencing at the entrance of a large
stream that falls into the sea about three miles to the westward
of Point Aconi, at the eastern extremity of the Island of
Boularderie, and following the middle of the stream upward, until
it intersects the present highway between the Great and Little
Bras d'Or; thence running parallel to the rear line of the front
lot on the north side of Boularderie, until it comes to the south-
western corner of the Revd. James Fraser's lot on the north side;
thence south twenty degrees east, to the southeastern shore of
Boularderie, and to continue on the same course to the middle of
the Bras d'Or Lake; thence up the middle thereof westerly to the
middle of the Strait of Barra;'" etc.
Between 1851 and 1995, part of Boularderie was in Victoria, and
part in Cape Breton County.
With the formation in 1995 of the Cape Breton Regional Municipality,
part of Boularderie is in Victoria County and part in the CB Regional
