Captain John Bradstreet

Louisbourg, Nova Scotia

A Nova Scotian, he was captured (1744) by the French and confined at Louisburg.
After his exchange he described the weaknesses of the fortress, and in 1745
Sir William Pepperrell captured the stronghold. For his services in the expedition,
Bradstreet was promoted to the rank of captain and made
lieutenant governor of St. John's, Newfoundland.
