|Beaver River was originally named
Elsetcook which was a Micmac word meaning "Flowing by high banks".
The first settlers, who rarely accepted outsiders to their settlement,
had last names such as: Landers, Pitman, Sanders, Crosby, Patten, Cann,
Goudey, Perry, Jeffrey, Tedford, Corning, Killam, Trask, Blackadar, Byrnes,
Phillips, Kelley, Porter, and Sollows (List from "Brown's History of
Yarmouth County"), of which many are still quite common.
