On February 11, 1747 Grand
Pré was the scene of a surprise
attack on Col. Arthur Noble's
detachment of British troops from
Massachusetts who were billeted
in the houses of the inhabitants.
A French and Indian force under
Coulon de Villiers broke into the
British quarters at 3 am during
a blinding snowstorm and in the
close fighting, Noble and about 70
of his men were killed. On the
12th the British capitulated on
the condition that they be allowed
to return to Annapolis Royal. The
French departed soon after and
the British resumed their uneasy
possession of mainland Nova Scotia
