Hobsons Lake was not always so. Originally, it was known as Hopson Pond, named after the successor to Cornwallis, Peregrine Hopson , Governor of Nova Scotia, 1752-1755. Confirmation of the name change can be found here where it is listed as "rescinded". Perhaps one of our subscribers would like to follow up on this piece of history for a future NEWS. We remain interested in researching historical notes directly related to the BMBCL - please let us know if you have something to add. Picture: David Jacks, Hobson Lake
