In 1792 both Tancooks and Starr Island were granted to J.H. Flieger and George Grant. In 1829 thirty families of German colonists and French Huguenots, who had been brought over by the British Government, established their homes on the Tancooks.
Today, the population of Tancook Island is approximately 125 year round and swells to approximately 200 in the summer. The people make their living solely on the sea as inshore fishermen or ferry crew. Little Tancook has approximately 35 people, all subsist on the sea for their living as well.
