L'Acadie, Québec, Canada (Sainte-Marguerite-de-Blairfindie) - 1831 - Acadie had several prosperous farmers among its 11,419 residents in 1831 even if conditions for the majority were poor.

Its seigneurs vigorously exploited their habitants and placed heavy economic burdens on both owners of land and tenant farmers. Habitant debt was a chronic problem throughout the region. The seigneurs undoubtedly contributed to levels of distress in Acadie and the seigneurial question became a political issue of major importance during the 1830s. 2010/ 10/ lacadie.html
