Annapolis Royal, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada / Port Royal, Acadia - 1667 - Treaty of Breda - Acadia is given back to France
The Treaty of Breda restored Acadia to France. Paris largely ignored Acadia, and Quebec's war with the Iroquois left little time for Acadia concerns. The colonists of Port Royal expanded to establish colonies at Grand Pre, Piziquid (Windsor, Acadia (Nova Scotia), Cobequid (Truro, Acadia (Nova Scotia)) and Beaubassin (New Brunswick-Acadia (Nova Scotia) border). They are living like true republicans, not acknowledging royal or judicial authority. They became a new culture of people called the Acadians. Their natural abundance freed them from daily drudgery, and outsiders considered them lazy, obstinate, ignorant (few could read or write), yet say they have great hospitality are content and practical. The Acadians would suffer for the actions of the Quebec French against the English.
