In 1773, Robert Clark, merchant and colonizer, purchased Lot 21 in Prince Edward Island, then the Island of St. John. In 1774 he brought out settlers to found the settlement of New London. Although he added other lots to his holdings and made various attempts to encourage settlement, he was unsuccessful in realizing any financial return on his investment and by 1800 the estate was sold.
