Part of a series about Places in Nova Scotia

Annapolis County (2006 population 21,438) is a county in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia located in the western part of the province on the Bay of Fundy. The county seat is Annapolis Royal.

Background

Established August 17, 1759 by Order in Council, Annapolis County took its name from the town of Annapolis Royal which had been named in honour of Queen Anne of Great Britain. It was near the previous site of Port Royal, the chief Acadian settlement in the area. The Acadians had been forcibly removed by British government officials in the 1755 Grand Dérangement.

By 1833 a number of reasons had been advanced for making two counties out of Annapolis County. Two petitions were presented to the House of Assembly in that year requesting that the county be divided. However, it was not until 1837 that Annapolis County was divided into two distinct and separate counties - Annapolis and Digby.

Demographics

The county has an ethnic composition of 98.84% White, 0.86% Black, 1.84% Aboriginal, 0.12% Arab, 0.16% East Asian, 0.00% South Asian, and 0.00% Latin American.

There are 10,404 households out of which 26.06% have children living with them, 36.50% are married couples living together, 25.46% are one-person households, and 11.98% are other household types.
