Acadian Exiles in France
Acadian Exiles in France
In 1755, prior to the Seven Years' War or French and Indian War of 1756-1763, the British began deporting the French colonists from Acadia. The Acadians who were residents in British territory were sent to the British colonies along the Atlantic seaboard in North America. The colonies were not happy to receive sick, destitute, French-speaking Catholics. The Virginia colony refused to allow the exiles to even leave the ships. This group was eventually sent to England where they remained as prisoners of war for the duration of the war. They were mainly kept at Liverpool, Southampton and Bristol. As the war progressed, about 3,500 Acadians who were captured in areas that were considered to be French territories in Canada were deported directly to France. At the end of the war, about 1,500 Acadians left England and returned to France.
The trials and tribulations of the Acadians in France make a complicated story. The French government attempted to accommodate the refugees, even paying a small stipend as welfare to help support them. Several attempts were made to settle the Acadians in various areas.
Eventually, after years of negotiations between the Acadians, the French government and the Spanish government, Acadians were offered the option of going to Louisiana. Spain was in control of Louisiana and wanted more colonists - especially colonists who hated the British! A large group of Acadians had already made their way to Louisiana and were eager to be reunited with other family members. About 1600 of the Acadian refugees in France opted to go to Louisiana at the expense of the Spanish government in 1785.
