Cape Cod French Cable Comes to Eastham

It is only a little less than one hundred twenty-six years since one of the great events of the nineteenth century occurred on Cape Cod. This was the bringing in of the shore end of the new French cable at North Eastham, from the steamer Faraday.

Soon signals were exchanged with her from the shore, and the next morning she left to make the final connection seventeen miles out at sea. A large delegation from Orleans went to the “Three Lights” at Eastham to witness the important event of the landing of the cable, connecting France with Cape Cod.

My gran father Edward Jamieson was Franch Cable operator in Orleans & met my Gran Mother & married her from Orleans she was a Fulcher. her brother worked at the station & introduced them.

My gran father was from Nova Scotia a long story, but he did retire from the French Cable. He has since passed away but the family still lives in Orleans.
