Maritimes first settlers completely ignored.
16 April 2017 | by yrobichaudSee all my reviews

It seems Acadians who settled as pioneers in Port Royal in 1604 and later at Fort Louisbourg, also in Nova Scotia are not included at all in what was Lower Canada. It's a major shame how they who developed the beaver trade with Europe is not mentioned. They were from Seigneurie D'Aulnay in Poitou France, north of Bordeaux. The were cultivators for Seigneur Charles D'Aulnay. In 1632, 300 Elite French men came from Seigneurie Isaac Razilly. Between 1635-1650 D'Aulnay brought 20 French families and started populating this country. Both my parents families are from this group. In the 1671 census, there are 53 French family names, all from Lord Charles Menou D'Aulnay. I have pictures of an Abenaquis tribe chief considered King and daughters who were princesses and can affirm they did not look richer then the poorer of the poor French claimed in this mini series. Acadians taught them how to culture the land in return learned how to hunt, build canoes. Lived in harmony fairly well. I can see how Quebecquers would feel offended as well. Obviously no French historians were consulted. Genealogy is one of my hobbies and have many books with facts from archives. I hope Justin Trudeau will acknowledge Acadians and the Maritmes as part of Canada somewhere in the near future. Big disappointment!
