Acadian Expulsion


Starting in 1755, about 6,000 Acadians were forcibly removed from their colonies. The British military ordered the Acadians' communities to be destroyed and homes and barns were burned down. The people were dispersed among the 13 American colonies, but many refused them and sent them on to Europe. Families were torn apart and many lost everything they owned.

As a result of the deportation and the subsequent migrations, the Acadians ended up in the New England States and all along the eastern seaboard, as far south as Georgia. Many were put in jail, and many died at sea. Others ran away to Quebec, hid with the Mi'kmaqs in Nova Scotia, or went to present-day New Brunswick, or Prince Edward Island.

Approximately 6,000 Acadians were deported from mainland Nova Scotia in 1755 and several hundred more after the fall of Louisbourg in 1758. If they were not demolished or burned by British troops, churches and chapels gradually disappeared from the landscape,. In some cases, accidental discoveries or archaeological digs have revealed the location of former parish cemeteries. Saint-Charles-des-Mines cemetery, for example, is located in Grand-Pré National Historic Site, although the exact dimensions are still not known. In the year 2000, when excavation work was being done for a housing development in Falmouth (formerly Pisiquid), several graves belonging to the old Sainte-Famille parish cemetery were unearthed by chance.

Of that 6,000+, approximately 1,500 were deported to Virginia, 450 were deported to Pennsylvania, 2,000 were sent to Massachusetts, 1,027 bound for South Carolina (some stayed in Boston), 900 were sent to Connecticut, 250 to Maryland and 450 to Georgia.
There is no proof that the Acadians who lived in Port-Royal, Grand-Pré or elsewhere, used stone monuments to mark their graves. The same is true with regard to the thousands of French men and women who inhabited the fortress town of Louisbourg on Isle Royale (known today as Cape Breton Island) in the 18th century. A 1686 map of Port-Royal provides the only known visual representation of a 17th century Acadian church and cemetery. The cemetery is surrounded by a fence which served to keep animals out and to delineate the sacred ground. Inside the fence, one can see seven small wooden crosses and a central cross mounted on a base of stones. Very few 18th century documents refer to the appearance of Acadian cemeteries, but those that do indicate that Acadians before the Deportation marked their graves with wooden crosses.

These ancestors were likely a part of the Grand Derangement which took place in 1755. NOTE: This is not a complete list. As we find more, we will continue to add them.
