Annapolis Royal, Annapolis, Nova Scotia, Canada / Port Royal, Acadia - 1763 - Nova Scotia
The English land cleared about 11,000 French Acadians from Nova Scotia during the period of 1755 to 1763, to make room for English and Scottish settlers as those Acadians held the best land. The Acadians held in England are shipped to France and France reports 2,400 are on welfare. St. Milo, France received 1,560 Acadian refugees. As a result of the English Land Clearance, Acadia is renamed Nova Scotia.
The Treaty of Paris gave Acadie to England.
France says it doesn't want New France. All they want of Canada is their fish. The English don't know what to do about the French Canadians. Benjamin Franklin of Philadelphia assures London that within 1/ 2 a century, French Canada will be absorbed into the English colonies in religion, language and manners. The rest will be bought out and sent back to France.
