      The Ransoms and Rhoddys (Rhoddas?) are to be found in Delong settlement, Digby and elsewhere. There is an old tombstone in the graveyard at Annapolis inscribed: "To the memory of Stephen Rhodda and his wife, Theodosia" These may, perhaps, be offshoots from them.

      Historic Parks
      FORT ANNE NATIONAL PARK
      A number of interesting donations were made to the park museum during the year. These included: a small leatherbound notebook that belonged to Stephen Rodda, surgeon-barber at Annapolis Royal in 1744 - 45, which records the attacks on the fort by Du Vivier and Marin during those years; a bicycle constructed about 1860 and used in the vicinity; a charcoal-burning flat iron; a tunic and sash worn by a member of the Duke of Wellington's Regiment, a detachment of which formed the last garrison of Fort Anne in 1854; a large framed picture of Queen Victoria; and an early model clothes wringer.

      23. The chief source of information about Wilkie family history is the commonplace-book of Stephen Rodda (1715-post 1806), William Wilkie's maternal grandfather, who appears to have spent his final years with his daughter and son-in-law Wilkie in Halifax: Canadian Parks Service, Fort Anne National Historic Site, Annapolis Royal (mfm. at PANS).
