History

Beaver Harbour was settled in September 1783, by the "Quaker Company" the (spokesmen) agents for which were Joshua Knight, Samuel Fairlamb and John Rankin. The "Quaker Company" was composed almost entirely of members and former members of the Society of Friends from Pennsylvania and New Jersey (including the John and Susanna Jackson family from Chester County, PA. One of their children, Thomas, was born there in 1788. They had all returned to Baltimore County MD and to Chester County PA by 1795. John died in Baltimore in 1795.), who being Loyalists left the City of New York upon its evaculation by the British Army at the end of the (American) Revolution. A number of the men had served as military loyalists, thus the company was in some ways a United Empire Loyalist counterpart to the “Patriot” “Free Friends”

In 1790 this settlement Bellevu or Bellveue was largely destroyed by a forest fire and most of the members of the "Quaker Company" dispersed.
