In order to protect it, he hired a military officer (John Gorham) along with his Rangers to erect a fort on the coast of Bedford Basin. It was called Fort Sackville after the 1st Duke of Dorset, Lionel Sackville. The area all-around the fort became known as Sackville until the mid-1850s when it became Bedford.
