Acadian Immigrants to San Luìs de Natchez, 1768

Ages are as of 1768.  Individuals with surnames in bold are male family heads or the eldest sons of widows.  Hyperlinks take you to individual histories in the Acadian family pages, which contain many more details of each person's life.  The Jul 1763 column is where colonial authorities counted that person in Maryland.  See Jehn, Acadian Exiles in the Colonies, 150-58.  The 1769 column refers to where the family or individual went after Governor Ulloa's successor, General/Governor Alejandro O'Reilly, released them from San Luìs de Natchez:  Cabanocé/St.-Jacques (StJ), Ascension (Asc), or St.-Gabriel d'Iberville (StG), on what became known as the Acadian Coast, or Atakapas (Atk), west of the Atchafalaya Basin. 

NOTE:  These individuals are documented in Voorhies, J., Some Late Eighteenth-Century Louisianians, 435-39.  See also Brasseaux, ed., Quest for the Promised Land, 134-35, for "Distribution of land to the Acadians[sic] families who will be sent to the settlement of San Luìs de Natchez," which includes the name of family heads, the number of children, & arpents frontage.
