Frederick Perrin was a world traveller, avid botanist, and horticulturist. He is of the English family famous for the Lea & Perrin's Worchester Sauce. Mr Perrin purchased the large Huggonin estate in 1885 and by the late 1890s his gardens were said to rival the Public Gardens in Halifax in splendor and beauty.Mr. Perrin died in the 1920s and is buried in the Anglican cemetery in Eastern Passage. His home burned in 1947, but the remains of his gardens are still visable around the island's tea house.
